gannaca was founded in the year 2002 to tackle the unanswered questions about a rising “internet economy” and its potential effects on society and business models of traditional market players.
The think tank today consists of a group of teams distributed across six continents (yes we think of the social media sphere as a sixth continent).
Christopher Patrick Peterka (38) is a futurist, an entrepreneur and an investor with 22 years of experience under his belt. As early as the year 2000 he had already founded a company for natural language interfaces for man/machine communications. Besides managing his investments he coaches organizations globally on questions relating to the topics of innovation culture and future strategy with the think tanks gannaca and THE HUS.institute. His particular interest is dedicated to the new rules in the economy and society of the Digital Modern era.
As a speaker and interview partner Peterka inspires, surprises and challenges. He reveals the tectonic shifts between ‘old and new world’ driven by the advancing globalization, digitalization, demographics and climate change. He creates context and conveys relevance. He scratches at the limits of the imaginable and feasible, without losing touch with daily life. A father of two and a cyborg already, he strives for practical change and drives to make the world a better place by leveraging an entirely new thinking that implies teaching robots humaneness as well.
