Why Us?


We are management consultants, digital transformers and capability developers and not event organizers. Our immersion programs are focused on your business challenges because solving them is our business.

Quality over quantity

We do not organize a massive number of immersion programs. We organize only one intercompany executive program a year, on average, thus ensuring quality over quantity.

Insider and outsider perspectives

We are based in San Francisco and participate in the SV ecosystem, but most of our activity is outside Silicon Valley, giving us a balanced perspective and a better understanding of the participants.

Silicon Valley (SV) Champions

Stable core SV faculty, more than 250 SV Speakers and 200 SV Companies have been engaged in our programs.
