Why Richtopia?

Richtopia, founded by Derin Cag in December 2014, is a portmanteau of the words ‘Rich’ and ‘Utopia’.

Our vision is of a world where every person has a rich quality of life and standard of living.

The Father of Capitalism, Adam Smith, once said:

“No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable.”

We build the Richtopian vision through quality education, and strategic partnerships.

Fellow Richtopians can find new insights and advice on leadership, innovation, and technology.

Our in-depth case-studies and analysis of leading people and companies provides a mass network-effect towards and a wider understanding of future trends.
