Google, Facebook, And Other Major Tech Companies Pay This Startup To Get Their Employees Boozed Up And Running Around
By Jillian D’onfro, March 25, 2014
Instead of doing boring team-building activities, Silicon Valley technology companies are doing scavenger hunts organized by Joe Garvey, founder of a startup called CLASH.
"We take drinking, competition, and technology, and combine them to make awesome scavenger hunts for companies like Google, Facebook, and Salesforce," Garvey says. "We blow their minds."
Joe Garvey – tech party king

As the activities coordinator at a hotel for the homeless, Joe Garvey's job was to get 150 people, many of whom were addicts, to leave their rooms. He created a daily calendar like nothing the Tenderloin hotel had seen before: book clubs, cooking groups, a vegetable garden, trivia nights and a bilingual community newspaper. Each morning, he toured the halls, slipping handwritten invitations under doors.

The best team-building ever

When CLASH invited The Bold Italic (TBI) to partake in an afternoon of drinking and adventure, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. All I knew that beautiful Friday was that we were going on a team-building scavenger hunt. Thoughts of corporate retreats and past days running around UC Berkeley at night with a flashlight flashed through my mind, but I was game for this game, whatever it was.
