Build better futures with the Future Today Institute.

We are a team of futurists who are passionate about helping our clients prepare for deep uncertainty. With diverse backgrounds in strategic foresight, game theory, business and management theory, technology, science, design and political science, we believe strongly in cross-disciplinary approaches to wicked problems. We are enthusiastic about foresight – and helping our clients learn the FTI way. 

Founded in 2006, the Future Today Institute researches, models and prototypes future risk and opportunity. As the leading advisory to executive leadership teams worldwide, FTI’s data-driven applied research reveals trends and calculates how they will disrupt business, government and society. Together with our clients and partners, FTI is helping leaders achieve their preferred futures. Our pioneering, data-driven forecasting methodology and tools empower leaders to make better decisions about the future, today.

How we work

We believe in focused, hard work. Our clients appreciate our dedication to them and our flawless execution on their projects. We never miss deadlines. We're a high-performing team, but one that values downtime to rest and recharge. We close our office once each quarter and sign off of email. We take extended holiday breaks. We insist that our FTI team goes offline (or at least offline from work) during those sabbaticals. We invest in our people. So we offer exceptional perks and benefits, which include the usual (competitive compensation, health benefits, 401k plan, paid family leave) and the unusual (quarterly sabbaticals, training stipend, mentoring opportunities, registrations for experiences).
