Presentation

Overview

Many mistakenly believe innovation comes from the top – that the “great minds” of leaders are always responsible for the buzz around a company’s ground-breaking efforts. The truth is, the most boundary pushing companies are cultivating internal cultures of innovative thinking, encouraging every team member to join in and push a business forward.

Secret Location’s success in the burgeoning VR industry is a direct result of an all-hands-on-deck company culture built around empowerment, experimentation and creativity.
