Magic is real.
We create ecosystems that activate human flourishing. Through curated events, mentorship, skills training, corporate partnerships, placemaking, and software to help individuals start and grow some of the world's most innovative businesses. We do all of that in a community that become vibrant places to work, live and create.
For more than seven years we have worked with individuals and companies to create an ecosystem for those who want a better life. As the world and capitalism have changed many have become disillusioned with the American Dream.
We are activating people who have been most disconnected. We created a model that mobilizes entire communities to set personal goals, pursue new forms of education, which has resulted in entire communities becoming research and development engines for industries and corporations.
To see all humans regardless of education, race, gender, or creed, start and grow companies that change their world.
Is to ensure all humans are equipped to become the best versions of themselves within a community of like-minded people who are adding beauty and value to the world.
