After 15 years, we have created a new dancing star. The Futures Lab, Inc. has merged with Plutopia Productions Inc. under a new holding company, Plutopia Futures Group. The Futures lab will continue to conduct its futures consulting business, but will focus on the entertainment, media, communications, consumer electronics and adjacent industries. Over the past 5 years, we have sponsored and contributed to Plutopia Productions’ future focused experiential events by providing access to our network and emerging technologies and related ideas either developed with our clients or contacts at companies and institutions such as MIT, University of Texas, UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, etc. as well as access to our offices around the world. Maggie Duval will continue to head up Plutopia Productions, Inc. and Derek Woodgate will remain President of TFL. The Group is in the process of electing a new board, on which both Maggie and Derek will serve amongst others.
The Plutopia Futures Group will provide an umbrella operation for TFL, Plutopia Productions, Inc. and Plutopia News. All of these organizations will operate independently and collaboratively.
The Group headquarters will be located in Austin, TX, but TFL will officially move its offices to Atlanta, GA.
