Last week, Experientia executives travelled to Los Angeles, for the first of two meetings with its team of five fully employed students (average age: 32), to define the objectives for the study. In six months time, they’ll return to LA, for the students’ formal business plan presentation focused on Experientia’s future opportunities in the North American market.
Experientia was selected for its qualities of excellence, strong propensity for innovation, and continued growth in the last years, as it seeks to channel its expansion in international directions.
