Immersion in San Francisco

What are immersions?

Our immersions bring executive teams from around the world to key hubs of innovation, from Silicon Valley to Tel Aviv. We connect them with the most disruptive startups, VCs, entrepreneurs, accelerators and thought leaders in order to inspire fast-paced change on a collaborative event.

Ultimately, each immersion agenda is curated in line with your wants and needs, from culture and ways of working, through to future business direction. As a bespoke event the immersion is designed to inspire and support your specific strategic agenda.

Why do we run immersions?

Immersions are a transformative experience for business leaders for a number of reasons. Primarily, immersions expose companies to market-leading technologies and new practices for delivering solutions – and at pace . The shared experience helps build a united vision among executive leadership, guiding the future strategic direction of the company. Companies can also learn how VC firms are investing in the next generation of firms, through a portfolio of small experiments. And finally, immersions allow executives to experience and understand the mindset of leaders who have embedded a “learn fast” mentality in organisations, creating an environment for innovation to thrive.

We run four types of immersion events

From our clients

“The new categories immersion was inspirational due to the fantastic start-ups that we were introduced to and the insight that was given during the panel session. It was the ideal combination of subject matter expertise on some of our key focus areas such as sustainability and direct-to-consumer (D2C) models. “
