SF Hub Opening
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. Opened 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 convenes 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.

Your support matters

Thanks to generous founding gifts, INSEAD has secured and renovated the 224 Townsend Street garage. However, we need your support to fully realise the potential of this exciting new venture, especially in the area of research.


Your support will enable our faculty to:
  • Conduct new research on digital transformation

  • Build bridges between the vibrant tech ecosystem in the Bay Area and INSEAD's global network of leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators

  • Explore how tech can be a force for good in the world by better meeting the needs and expectations of society

  • Create more knowledge about how culturally and functionally diverse teams thrive in high-tech teams and organisations

  • Access critical funds for case studies, data acquisition, travel and research assistants

INSEAD Hub Brick Campaign
The INSEAD Hub Brick Campaign

In recognition of our new San Francisco address, 224 Townsend Street, our goal is to attract 224 donors for 224 bricks. 

The INSEAD Hub Brick Campaign takes the tradition of the beautiful, timeworn bricks of Camembert, on our Europe Campus, in a new digital direction. When you donate to research at the San Francisco Hub, you will be recognized for your early contribution in establishing a strong foundation for our most innovative endeavor yet.
