What is an innovation tour?
An innovation tour is a learning journey in which a select group will meet local entrepreneurs, start-ups, incubators, investors, journalists, artists, or even activists, in emerging markets. It is not simply an opportunity for exposure to the people with creativity and momentum, but rather a chance to have an equal conversation and a genuine exchange in an intimate setting. We want every client to find exactly what they are looking for on an innovation tour, so we offer two different programs: the Discovery Innovation Tour and the customized Dive In Tour.
Discovery Innovation Tour
With our Discovery Innovation Tour, The A Factor guides small groups through burgeoning cities and thriving networks in a way that no one else can. The program is designed for individuals from diverse backgrounds: students, entrepreneurs, investors, etc. When you take an innovation tour, you are entering a network of individuals committed to social change. The objective is to challenge yourself.
A Discovery Innovation tour is not a conference, or a series of stuffy meetings and handshakes. You will meet key stakeholders, hand-picked by The A Factor, in their own territory—explore offices, social incubators, and cultural centers. Every tour includes field visits to social projects, and provides hands-on experiences and active participation opportunities to group members.
Dive In Tour
The Dive In Tour is the customized, more focused version of our Innovation Tours. If you are interested in interacting with an emerging market with a specific agenda already identified, the A Factor will customize a trip for you and your team, comprehensive of the portfolio of players and organizations that you aim to target. This is ideal if you expect a thematic program and one-on-one meetings to get exposure to selected projects, or to understand where your product/service fits in the local market. These 4 types of tours are only organized on demand: Investor Tours, Corporate Tours, Study Abroad Tours, and Entrepreneurial Tours.
If you want to:
- immerse yourself in emerging markets,
- experience a first-mover advantage,
- see eye-to-eye with innovators,
- build your international network,
- explore job opportunities,
- expand your current business,
- find sustainable business models in which to invest,
- participate in creating positive social impact,
- learn from international changemakers (and put what you have learned to good use!)
- and do so with a group of like-minded people
then an Innovation Tour might be for you!
Join this network of innovators and challenge yourself to see what you, too, can offer.
