I will introduce novel natural extensions of the Standard Model featuring Dynamical Breaking of the Electroweak Symmetry. Not only we solve the hierarchy problem but the models pass the Electroweak precision tests. I will also show how the Standard Model couplings unify, at the one loop level, at a level of precision superior to the Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model. I will introduce two benchmarks for dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking, i.e. (Ultra) Minimal Walking Technicolor. We have made great progress recently on understanding the underlying dynamics of these theories using first principle lattice simulations as well as the use of our novel conjecture for the all order beta function for any nonsupersymmetric gauge theory with fermionic matter. I will finally show how to construct natural models of Dark Matter, i.e. having the potential to relate and understand the ratio of dark to bright matter.
