    "For now the third time, Simone Lis curated an unforgettable DDV Innovation Journey to Los Angeles and CES. After having explored Silicon Valley with her in previous years, she showed us the latest startup ecosystem in Silicon Beach: it was a great combination of exciting company visits such as YouTube, BadVR and Snapchat, newest retail and restaurant concepts and VR experiences. Every tour has been carefully designed and customized to the group’s interest. This makes her tours so unique and her engagement so passionate - that’s also why we continue to offer these West Coast "DialogTours” to our members.”

    was able to explain in an inspiring way
    the secrets of Silicon Valley.”
