In this special year-end episode, Phillip Koblence and Nabeel Mahmood of the Nomad Futurist Foundation (NFF) reflect on the significant progress made over the past year. A highlight of their mission’s success has been the support given to children, encompassing educational initiatives, provision of computing devices, and ultimately, guiding these young minds towards opportunities within the industry.

Looking forward, the nomads are thrilled about launching an academy, enhancing scholarship funds, developing internship programs, and creating industry job opportunities. Nabeel encapsulates one of the Foundation’s primary objectives:

“We are set forth to pass the legacy on to the next generation and bring younger people and smarter people into the space.”

The nomads also reflect on the origin of their non-profit journey:

“This is about trying to lay the groundwork for something that lives beyond us and that takes on a life of its own. And I feel like this year, more than any other, we’ve really seen that crystallized and coming into focus with the ambassadors that we’ve been able to bring in and really the passion that they have brought out.”

This episode comes to a close with an appeal to not merely sit on the sidelines:

“We need your help. If you’re in our industry, if you’re interested in our industry, if you want to help and you believe in digital infrastructure in general, the growth of AI, and all of the elements that support it and surround it. The more help, the more involvement, and we’ve started launching different ways for people to get involved. Anyone can be involved.”
