The founders from Kazakhstan came to us on a business trip to Silicon Valley precisely for this purpose.

To help them choose a strategy and tools for developing their e-commerce business, we prepared a program in which they not only visited the offices of large companies but also conducted mentor sessions, workshops and lectures with successful business owners in the USA.

  • During the tour, participants visited companies such as: Zappos, Intel, Google, Apple, LinkedIn, and Amazon. The Stanford University campus and available training programs inspired them.
  • Co-Founder of a company with a million-dollar turnover MaryRuth helped to analyze the business. Mentor and sales specialist Adrian Rivodeaux conducted a workshop on organizing sales within the company.
  • The Amazon manager helped find market demand. And thanks to our sessions and workshop, the founders developed their mission and company values.

  • In conclusion, Anastasia Totok, member of the board of directors, head of the Leadership and Organizational Management Committee of the UN Association in San Francisco, held a session on identifying blocks and strengthening soft skills for the company's founders.
A pleasant end to the program was a networking event on a yacht, where participants were able to enjoy the views of San Francisco and establish friendly connections with Silicon Valley experts.
