STARTUP ISLAND

CUSTOM EXPERIENCES

DRIVING ENGAGEMENT, CREATIVITY AND FULFILLMENT

Culture isn't to be preached, it's to be experienced.

Creating culture is more than ping pong tables in the office and free lunch on Fridays. It's more than buzzwords painted on walls or littered throughout mission statements. Culture needs to be cultivated and embodied. 

 

We create unique experiences for teams, organizations, and communities, from immersive retreats to in-office developmental programs and workshops.

 

We'll take all the stress out of the planning, booking, and logistics, so you can focus on the experience itself, and the goals for your team.

"For our recent company offsite, we wanted to build authentic connections between team members by creating a space for creativity and fun. Startup Island facilitated a Cultivating Creativity workshop that got us thinking differently, and gave clear takeaways to help us come up with creative solutions to business problems. The session was a catalyst that set a lighthearted, creative tone for the rest of our retreat.”

- Ben Hayon, Enterprise Growth Team, AbleTo

ENVISION.

Tell us about your team and vision for the upcoming experience. We'll explain our process, answer any questions you have, and determine if it's a good fit.

"Working with Startup Island made hosting my retreat so much more attainable than I ever thought it could be. They handled everything from finding the property to booking my travelers' flights to ensuring seamless transportation to and from the airport, even the finances of it all. This gave me the time and space to focus on what I actually wanted to be focusing on: building out my workshops and classes, and then being fully engaged while on site without having to worry about logistics."

- Sarah Gaines, Wellness Entrepreneur, Speaker & Coach

BUILD.

We'll dive deeper into the details of the retreat: destination type, duration, budget, hopes, dreams, and non-negotiables. We've got options to fit every vision.

"The workshops with Startup Island were unique and inspiring in many ways. To get our creative juices flowing, they started by evoking happy memories from our childhood when we believed we could do anything. This added a new element of connection and depth to the conversations within our team and board."

- Max Allen, Board Member, StartLabs @ MIT
