IO Retreat (Candili, Greece)
Date of Retreat : 5th-10th June 2016 (TBC)

Why do some networks, communities and organisations thrive, whilst others fail? How can we prototype new forms of community and business partnerships? What is the lifestyle that the next generation of millennials will aspire to?


In June 2016 I will be organising an IO Retreat in a beautiful estate in Greece called Candili, with the purpose of exploring these questions and undertaking some ambitious collaborative projects together with some likeminded entrepreneurial friends.


We have the opportunity to transform a beautiful 10,000 acre estate in Greece into a world famous venue that brings together entrepreneurs, artists and makers from across the world. Think Burning Man meets Hooke Park meets Y-Combinator meets POC21 meets Enspiral meets Summit Mountain in a beautiful, biodiverse, fertile landscape just 2 hours drive from Athens.


Rough Agenda (5 day immesive retreat)

• Everyone gives a short recorded TED style talk about who they are, their vision for the future and how they wish to participate and contribute to the collective.
• We self-organise around three design briefs (the IO Collective, the Candili Estate and the StartupAid camp).
• We launch an IO website and a campaign promoting our projects and inviting new members to join.
• We leave plenty of space and time for everyone to connect, share stories and explore future collaborations.
