Traveling with a small, hand-picked cohort, with the potential to create deeper bonds; and 3. Enjoying the sights and sounds of the Valley. All three were delivered, in spades.”

What Did The Recent Attendees Have To Say?
“I think that maybe the big difference is that here I could practically touch ideas that I had already in my mind, that I knew because I am in the business, I also work with startups back in Spain. But here I’ve been in front of companies that have brilliant ideas, that have already been in the market for five, ten years. And I appreciate very much the practicality of this program, so that it’s not theoretical. It’s maybe what I knew but now I’ve touched it. I’ve built also a network so I will definitely follow up with a lot of folks that I have met during these five days.”
Executive Director, IBM Spain
“Because when you’re here and you’re visiting with these companies, you get that “a-ha” effect. You know that they are in this kind of, if you will, bubble out here, and they’re turning all of these FinTech startups and informational systems and we don’t really know about those back there. Bringing my team out here would create that same excitement that I have in taking my information back and maybe it would be better representative if they were here to see it because out here every company that I’ve been with meeting with so far, they’re literally eating and breathing and sleeping this technology and they are excited to share it with us. “
VP of Lending, Catholic Credit Union
“I’ve really enjoyed the program this week. I think in particular I’ve enjoyed the networking, I’ve enjoyed meeting the team that’s here, the companies that we’ve gone to visit and the companies that have come to visit us. And, I guess, overall, as far as to summarize, my experience was certainly an innovation in itself. It’s been a bit of a revolution in, certainly, some of the understanding that I’ve had and gained as part of my time here.”
