Paul Allen

Ancestry Founder, Paul Allen was once on a mission to connect you to your past. And now? Now he is on a mission to connect you to a future where you know your strengths and get to use them every day, where using your God-given talents brings you success and joy at work and in life.

Renowned as the “Strengths Evangelist,” Paul helps individuals and organizations unlock their potential and accomplish truly great things.

Through Soar, Paul helps you connect to the most meaningful, inspiring, and empowering content that will help you thrive at work and in life. Soar is about your future — what you need to know to make great decisions and achieve great things in all areas of your life.

Soar transcribes and indexes billions of hours of the world’s best video & audio content — courses, lectures, sermons, talks, podcasts, speeches, and workshops in all areas of human knowledge.

 

Soar’s AI Marketplace will allow you to custom design a blend of machine learning models that you can apply to all that content. Soar’s PRISM AI will help you have near-perfect recall of all the content that matters most and personalized recommendations and playlists for what you want to learn next.

 

Billions of people are addicted to their devices. You shouldn’t feel lost without your smartphone—which most people compulsively reach 150 times a day. Billions of us spent trillions of hours a year scrolling endlessly on social media, binge-watching streaming media, or playing online games. All are designed to addict us, to distract us.

 

You can enjoy the benefits and delights of AI along with the world’s largest library of meaningful uplifting and wholesome content without the negative side effects of screen addiction.

 

Our community of creators and curators includes authors, speakers, podcasters, teachers, coaches, trainers, leaders, entrepreneurs, librarians, and publishers who want to help all humans grow, develop and flourish.

 

It’s time to discover your strengths, values, and purpose, and design the life you were meant to live — with AI and technology serving you — not distracting you from what matters most.

Paul conceived the idea for Ancestry.com in 1996 and launched the company as its founding CEO in July 1997. Since then, tens of millions of people have used the service to discover more about their family heritage.

Paul’s products have been used by millions and have generated billions of dollars in revenue. He continues to stay on the forefront of technology, and is working with top engineers and companies to build products that help people live more fulfilling lives. “The future is already here–it’s just not very evenly distributed.” Paul knows innovation can be sparked with a strengths-based approach. The power of this approach is evident in his own entrepreneurial endeavors. Through harnessing his own strengths and the strengths of his team, Paul has founded and inspired companies that continue to have lasting impact.

Social Humanitarian

Paul is a vocal advocate for investing in people. Every person everywhere deserves a chance to soar with their strengths. Leaders in government, business, education, non-profits and the faith community can choose to invest in every person. Corporations can begin to value people above profits and GDP growth. We face a technologically advanced future that threatens to replace human jobs with robots and AI. Paul hopes to inspire leaders with new tools and ideas to move forward towards a more inclusive economic system where more people can thrive.

Paul hopes to bring the strengths message to all 50 states and to 50 countries by 2025.
