Welcome, stranger

We believe in the value of deep, personal connections to move entrepreneurship and our community  forward.

From the beginning, our metric for success at our events has been the number of meaningful connections that were created. (3.7 per person) 

We know that leadership is an authentic journey, filled with challenges, and success ultimately requires the strength of a community, skills,  knowledge and living a balanced, well-rounded life. 

Our Vision: The Wheel

We are building social infrastructure to bring our community together persistently around the concept of being a well-round or  Holistic Entrepreneur or Leader

Like a wheel, it will have parts more exposed to the public surface than others.  

  • Ticketed, Public Experiences

For example, monthly 'Spokes' will  be a public event created  around a key theme related to what it takes to be a holistic entrepreneur or leader.

We envision bringing in top A-list talent and expertise (think Tim Ferris, Brene Brown, Amy Cuddy,  Seth Godin and Simon Sinek)  for  the best monthly experience Columbus has seen. You deserve it! 

Themes for  Spokes are still being determined, but will include   business and professional skills along with nutrition, wellness, emotional intelligence,  balance and  FUN!

  • members-only experiences  for personal development and authentic connections

Hubs will be members-only experiences that are small and intimate, providing for growth, leadership and development through vulnerability. Think hands-on trainings, workshops and coaching sessions, provocative dinner-parties from leading edge chefs, cocoa around campfires,  opportunities to create art, controversial hikes in the woods, moonlight star-gazing  and more. Someday, perhaps, a physical space that is NOT designed for work, but rather connection.

We are creating what we, as entrepreneurs, want to exist in the world. And we are making it happen here in Test City, U.S.A. It starts with you.
