Welcome to Venture Up's first digital newsletter. Here you'll find our  clients having fun at work, unlike Mr. Snowman.

We bring value and humor to what y
are already doing in-house to engage your employees. 

Our facilitators are well-read, well-traveled, and chosen for their empathy and understanding of the individual needs of a team on a mission. Our programs are not about us, but about you.

When you hire Venture Up, you send a clear message that you value your staff. You show your commitment a positive corporate culture, where building trusting relationships is an ongoing process.
