Welcome to a Tour that gives you deep insight into the Silicon Valley. In this full-week program, we’ll visit up to five organizations per day, and have conversations with some of the most inspiring people in the world.
The Campus Tour is our entry pont to the Silicon Valley Inspiration Program. Unlike our other Tours during the year, we don’t focus on one theme or industry vertical. You’ll enjoy a variety of topics, conversation and professional backgrounds to gain deeper understanding about what you can do after you return home.
1) Company visits
We’ll have a good mix of legacy firms (Google, Facebook, Western Union, etc.) with some lesser known start-ups and young entrepreneurs.
There’s a lot that can happen when people meet and talk. Become part of the community, and meet some interesting personalities „off the record“.
