HOW IT BEGAN...

IN 2018, THE PROGRAM EXPANDED TO NEW YORK, LONDON, TEL AVIV, BERLIN, VIENNA, DUBAI, MUMBAI AND HONGKONG/SHENZHEN.

IN 2012, NIKI SKENE WAS INVITED TO COME TO SAN FRANCISCO AND INTRODUCE THE BUSINESS, INNOVATION AGENCY TO A FEW PEOPLE HE GOT INTRODUCED TO, AFTER A CONFERENCE IN DOHA, QATAR. ALL OF THESE FRIENDLY PEOPLE MADE THEIR INTROS TO ANOTHER BATCH OF CONNECTIONS IN SILICON VALLEY. AT THE END OF THE WEEK, NIKI HAD OVER 20 MEETINGS. ONE OF THE MEETINGS WAS WITH MARIO HERGER, AN AUSTRIAN WHO MOVED TO SILICON VALLEY A DECADE EARLIER. TOGETHER THEY DECIDED THAT EXACTLY THIS EXPERIENCE CAN HELP THE WORLDS LEADERS, FOUNDERS, ENTRE-PRENEURS, CONSULTANTS AND CURIOUS MINDS EXPAND THEIR HORIZON, ESTABLISH THEIR OWN NETWORK IN SILICON VALLEY AND BECOME THE LEADERS OF THEIR INDUSTRY.
THE AUSTRIAN INNOVATION CENTER SILICON VALLEY WAS BORN.

FROM 2012 - 2020, SILICON VALLEY INSPIRATION TOURS & GLOBAL INSPIRATION TOURS CONDUCTED 160 INSPIRATION TOURS UNTIL THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC PUT BUSINESS TRAVEL INTO HYBERNATION. ALREADY IN 2020, THE VIRTUAL INSPIRATION TOURS and THE TOURS IN VIRTUAL REALITY ENRICHED THE SPECTRUM OF THIS JOURNEY.
SINCE DECEMBER 2020, THE SILICON VALLEY INSPIRATION TOURS, and STARTING OCTOBER 2021, THE GLOBAL INSPIRATION TOURS ARE BACK IN FULL OPERATION.
