Building a future for INSEAD in North America

INSEAD's premier facility in San Francisco will open a new world of opportunities for our community to collaborate and engage with a dynamic ecosystem of innovators. Help us to lay a strong foundation for this exciting endeavor by participating in the INSEAD Hub Brick Campaign.

San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation
INSEAD launches the San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation
In the heart of San Francisco, at the epicenter of technology and innovation, INSEAD has further expanded its global reach with the INSEAD San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation. Opening in February 2020, our new North America location solidifies our global presence, adding to INSEAD’s campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

 

The San Francisco Hub for Business Innovation will convene leaders from our global business school and a city renowned for its innovative tech start-ups to connect and use innovation to solve critical problems in business and society.

The Hub occupies a historic, 1930s industrial garage that INSEAD has converted into a state-of-the-art facility. The renovated building is remarkable. It’s a dynamic, flexible space that invites thinkers and doers to connect and co-create; that leads the development of innovative research and teaching; that thrives on diversity and different points of view; and that harnesses technology as a force for good.

In its first year, the SF Hub will host a selection of executive development programs, tailored to the Americas and work to establish itself as a dynamic destination for alumni, corporate partners and faculty.
