Come visit and ask us anything. Really.
Since our founding in 2001, Menlo Innovations has openly shared everything we've learned about creating an intentionally joyful culture. This is typically done through tours of our software factory. But how could we share Menlo now that we work remotely? Fortunately, what makes Menlo "Menlo" is not a building or an open office layout. What makes us Menlo is the underlying values and mission that led us to become who we are today, it is the "why" behind what we do. So we've decided to run an experiment - virtual tours of the Menlo Software Factory!
Our "Private" tours are best for groups and teams of 6 or more individuals wanting to attend the same tour. These can be scheduled in-person or virtually.
Our "Public" tours are best for individuals who are interested in learning more about Menlo alongside other interested individuals. These tours are only offered virtually at this time.
TourMenlo Factory Tour (Public)
Our public tours of Menlo Innovations' factory floor are currently virtual. We'll spend 90 minutes together sharing Menlo's history, values, culture and practices -- and how we've transitioned to where we are today. While we miss having our public tour guests contribute to the buzz of the factory floor’s open office environment, we are thrilled to be able to still share what we’ve learned. Join us and be part of this latest experiment as we show you around Menlo as it is today!
