Event organized by Turnup.Travel

#var:page_name# cover

The founders' retreat is a well-curated escape with participants – strictly founders and entrepreneurs to travel together. We’re setting up at Kilifi Maghreb for 3 nights/ four days in an exclusive environment where you can work, play and turn up like a boss. The getaway is all about brainstorming, opening doors and good vibes only as we smash our set goals! The itinerary is designed to give you time slots when you can zone off, wander alone or with your co-founder or just chill with the group. The package gives you an opportunity to do off-site meetings with core-leadership and other entrepreneurs who are connected, knowledgeable and successful founders in different aspects of running a business. Brainstorming together and building camaraderie could bring long-term benefits and forge new relationships to accelerate the growth of your business. It's not all work so you'll have the much-needed rest and relaxation - a proper detox to reflect before the second half of the year.

Kilifi Maghreb homestay with one and 3-bedroom suites with modern amenities a few minutes’ drive from Kilifi town next to a private beach. Set in lush tropical gardens with modern amenities and light spacious interiors, Kilifi offers cool, comfortable surroundings, perfect for afternoon reads, a swim or alfresco dining. Guests say it is a very peaceful, lovely place away from the usual beaches tucked away in a quiet place. The Mbagba garden at Kilifi Maghreb is suitable for outdoor team events so you can unwind here, snack down and doze off!
