2018 Winter Venture Retreat

An amazing 3-day retreat in the Dolomites with fellow investors and entrepreneurs

WHEN

March 04-07, 2018

Apply to attend

Three days to unplug and connect.

THE RETREAT

Another conference?

Unplug is not a conference. We organize small, private events with the best minds around.

We structure the event as an occasion to really deeply connect with fellow entrepreneurs and investors, but most of all to feel the pull of nature, enjoying the silence and solitude that you can only get by being in the middle of the mountains.

Nature, mountains, good food, and a likeminded but diverse group of people. This is what we think is the perfect recipe for a short retreat from the daily hustle.

The event is deliberately light in its schedule, to maximize the amount of time you can spend actually getting to know the other participants.

A small ski chalet, but with comfort

THE LOCATION

We have chosen the best of the best. The Unplug chalet is in front of the Marmolada, the highest mountain of the Dolomites. It is an occasion to really deeply connect with fellow entrepreneurs and investors, but most of all to feel the pull of nature, enjoying the silence and solitude that you can only get by being in the middle of the mountains.

The chalet is secluded in the woods, where you can't hear a sound other than animals, but it's just a 7 minutes drives from Canazei, a small gem of a village in the heart of the Dolomites. It is a 3-star hotel with its own restaurant and bar.

Your home for three days, in the mountains

THE SCHEDULE

We will meet in Canazei to ski altogether and have fun. Join with us for an unconventional event where you will have three days no-stop with an international inspiring bunch of people who likes technology and nature and good high tech discussion sitting around a wood stove.
