This is your opportunity to experience the entrepreneurial spirit in the San Francisco /Silicon Valley and Los Angeles first-hand, and rub shoulders with your industry peers while learning!

The DI Tour is introducing Los Angeles to the Tour for the first time - Los Angeles is a fast-growing and increasingly important tech hub in the USA.

On the tour you will hear directly from movers and shakers in the technology and digital media world. You will visit start-ups, large technology companies and innovative media companies, meet key people and feel the energy of innovation in San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles first-hand.

We will confirm all the companies to be visited soon, but all the tech/media giants mentioned above, as well as start-ups and venture capitalists are on our radar.
