HAI Corporate Affiliate Program: S-DEL Engagement Opportunities

The Stanford Digital Economy Lab (S-DEL) Corporate Affiliate Program is creating a community of industry leaders who are deeply knowledgeable about the digital economy and will use our research to inform their work, as well as provide feedback to our team.

We rely on our industry community to help us understand the big questions, challenges, and opportunities that individuals and enterprises face in the digital age. As a lab, we believe that doing truly impactful work requires having an open dialogue with those who are building, deploying, and managing the technologies which we study. Our corporate program and activities are designed to foster discussions and build relationships with individuals and organizations that share our vision of a technology-rich future that benefits the many, and not just the few.
