Merging of nature and technology

Immersing in natural environments unleashes creative energies and inspires innovative thinking. Nature helps find universally relevant solutions & build globally scalable businesses.

SSS Platform Structure

SSS Platform is a breathing organism with its unique structure. The main structural cell is the squad organized around the campfire. Each Squad consists of max 25 members: 1 TeamLead, 3 coach, and up to 23 young entrepreneurs representing various startups, diverse backgrounds, and different geographies. Squads are formed by the organizers; however, they stay as a self-governing body under the management of the TeamLead.

Booster

TeamLead

TeamLeads play an extremely important role in organizing, supervising, and managing the squad members. TeamLeads are the middleman between the Event Organizers and squad members.
