About SIY Global

SIY Global is a venture-backed start-up with a vision to humanize work by making neuroscience-based social and emotional intelligence skills practical and accessible to individuals and teams in organizations worldwide. 

Our history originates from the Search Inside Yourself (SIY) platform,  born at Google as a neuroscience and mindfulness-based emotional intelligence training program. 

Due to the high demand for SIY externally,  the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute was spun off from Google as an independent educational institution in 2012, and over the past decade has worked globally with enterprise customers such as Google, SAP, Procter & Gamble, Salesforce, Disney, Visa, Genentech, Nestle and many more across a wide array of industry sectors..

SIY Global launched in early 2022 as a public benefit corporation with a focus on scaling our signature science-based programs.

SIY Global combines in-person and virtual programs delivered by a network of over 600+ providers in over 60 countries. With the closing of our seed investment round, SIY Global will develop a SaaS, cloud-based education technology platform to deliver our professional development experiences at scale.
