About us

Fastrack Institute is a non profit organization that accelerates technology into society by finding holistic approaches to solving problems, with a focus on large urban centres.

“I joined the Fastrack Institute in part because I wanted to use what I know how to do to create new livelihoods all across the globe.”
Kent Langley

The Institute

Based on the methodologies outlined in Salim Ismail’s Exponential Organizations, the initiative targets significant problems in multiple cities concurrently. We propose exponential solutions that impact citizens and advance innovation for positive social outcomes. We then create amplification of this effect through a global network and connectivity between client regions.

Fastrack is an institute as well as a conceptual framework for the design of future governance approaches and regulatory frameworks for industries, cities and regions seeking solutions to critical problems.

Improve your city

The story

The Fastrack Institute comes from the thesis that every one of the Global 5000 needs to go through an ExO Sprint, otherwise the time lag of getting the company up to speed is too long and they face an existential threat.

Similarly on the Fastrack side, if cities can solve a problem for about one tenth of the existing cost, ten years from now, it should be embarrassing for mayors that don’t have one.

Fastracks are fundamental, regular, scalable process frameworks that will take over the world and impact city by city with the help of information.
