Aussie Start-Up Takes Corporate Australia Behind the Scenes of Silicon Valley

  • Written by Adrian Falk

Australian corporate executives can now travel to Silicon Valley in a curated tour to meet with the Valley’s best and brightest tech minds, including senior employees from Google, Apple, Uber, Tesla and AirBnB, to name a few.

Offering a five-day innovation boot camp (June 10th – June 15th 2018), Silicon Valley Unlocked is an Australian business targeting founders, c-level executives and board members for an opportunity to gain unprecedented access to the masterminds that are quickly changing the landscape of how business is done one mouse click at a time.

Melbourne’s Jayson Frazer is the brainchild of Silicon Valley Unlocked who has over 25 years’ experience assisting businesses achieve greater results, including working with a wide range of clients such as Siemens, Samsung, BMW, Mini, Nissan, Bosch, Bostik, NHP and Virgin Australia. Working in corporate travel management, Jayson quickly saw the need in tech learning programs so he decided to start reaching out, through his business networks, in solidifying relationships with industry experts that he felt the Australian business community could learn and be inspired from.

“Our Silicon Valley Unlocked Innovation Boot Camp is a five day immersion. Each of the twelve participants get to go inside Silicon Valley’s major corporations and smaller startups and see for themselves how the most successful organisations of all time innovate and disrupt the world around us. The boot camp is also an ‘agile’ tour. We will tweak the program based on the collective preferences of the final group of delegates, thereby taking their needs on board to curate the most relevant tour for all involved”, Frazer says.

Ryan Scott, Founder & CEO of, has booked to go on the next boot camp, leaving in June. "As a business leader I believe it's vital to stay in touch with emerging trends that I can apply to my own business, or worse, disrupt it. With so much change and disruption emanating from Silicon Valley, I jumped at the chance to be part of the tour. To be able to learn from the tech giants first hand, plus see the latest innovations from new startups is an opportunity I didn't want to miss. I'm keen to understand what Silicon Valley companies are doing differently and how, so I can apply that knowledge to my own business", says Scott.
