Startup retreats

A team-building experience which will boost your company culture

Why organize a startup retreat?

Embrace your company culture, help new hires integrate into your team and let everyone get to know each other a little better! Keep everyone on the same page and prepare for rapid growth. Focus on the content of your retreat: consider including structured learning workshops or prepare a motivational CEO keynote.

We will take care of the rest: accommodation, event spaces, team-building activities, and all of the planning.

Startup retreats are also a great opportunity to celebrate your investment round. We’ll help you organize a company retreat your employees won’t soon forget and help you attract even more talent to your business.

Team building activities for startups

Startup teams are often under much higher pressure than well established large companies. Team members face bigger challenges in terms of collaboration and communication. In fact, a survey that looked into why startups fail most discovered that the 3rd most common reason was “not the right team” (23% of cases). Suitable team building activities can help you keep your colleagues engaged.

Look into some of the team activities for select Surf Office locations down below and let us help you to create the right work environment for your startup.
