Back to How we help clients

Innovation Boot Camp

We bring clients face-to-face with innovators from Silicon Valley to New York to Singapore so they can learn from the world’s most dynamic start-ups.

We have developed immersion experiences for our clients, so they can be exposed to—and learn firsthand—what makes the best start-ups so successful.

We are plugged into the start-up ecosystem in all the major global centers of innovation. These include Silicon Valley, which boasts the world’s densest concentration of technology giants and venture capitalists, as well as Berlin, London, New York, Singapore, and Tel Aviv.

Here are a few of the start-up experiences we offer:

  • Silicon Valley Innovation Boot Camp is an intensive 2-to 3-day session that brings client executives face-to-face with innovators who are at once potential business partners and potential formidable foes. We put together a custom itinerary of visits, workshops, and debriefings based on the client’s industry and objectives. Learn more about our Innovation Boot Camp.
  • Our Silicon Alley Roadshow in New York focuses on financial technology. We bring financial-services clients from around the world together with digital disruptors and innovators in banking, person-to-person lending, wealth management, and insurance.
  • Digital McKinsey Campus in Singapore has a mission to help enterprises in Asia stay competitive in the digital age. We do that by bringing together many of the region’s leading start-ups plus large companies and innovators in government for intensive, on-site sessions on our digital campus. Learn more about our campus.
