PULLING BACK THE CURTAIN ON SILICON VALLEY

Silicon Valley is where the human spirit and thirst for innovation live at its highest concentration. Understanding how The Valley thinks, behaves, and builds its vision is your responsibility as a senior executive. Adapting how you conceive and interact with your industry, and the digital space it inhabits, will allow you directly impact it and not simply react to it.

The Refiners Executive Program is a 1-week long immersive course in San Francisco that provides business, government, and non-profit organization leaders with an actionable toolkit to decipher the bountiful and yet complicated secrets of Silicon Valley's ecosystem.


EXPERIENCE, CHANGE, EXECUTE

You’ll be part of a small cohort of maximum 30 dynamic leaders and change-makers from around the world. Our program is perfectly tailored for foreign entrepreneurs, managers, investors, and government officials who want to adopt the Silicon Valley mindset and boost the way they do business.

During The Refiners Executive Program, leaders across a wide spectrum of industries in the Valley will deliver interactive presentations, followed by insightful discussions and workshops that will, in turn, leverage the diversity of the cohort of participants we've gathered for each program.


THINK BEYOND

This program is not about visiting cool startups and creating overnight connections. Instead, this program is truly about enriching you as the participants, to encourage you to revisit your current mindset, think beyond your current business, and, instead, redefine it. At The Refiners, we hope to inculcate the energy, the mentality and the work ethic that comes with the experience of having lived and worked in the Bay.  

You will learn how to think and behave as Silicon Valley does.

You will develop a new framework to redesign your business to scale.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Senior-level leaders at startups and growth companies who are challenged to scale
  • Senior-level leaders at large companies who are inspired to innovate
  • Seasoned and influential executives who will use this opportunity to make an even greater difference in their career and their organization’s future
