They dream big. Make it happen. And do it differently.

Meet the game changing founders, founder-focused investors, and proven industry leaders that all have been part of adVenturesAcademy - from the top of Cotopaxi in Ecuador to surfing the rugged California Coastline, pitching tents at Outdoor Retailer to snowshoeing to back country huts at 11,000 feet, rescuing each other from the ocean to avalanche training. Each was chosen by our world-class review team. They are pioneering innovative new products, organizations, funds, and growth resources that solve problems. They have pitched tents blindfolded together, surfed together, scaled mountains, volunteered on a wild horse rescue, and through it all, have built relationships that endure.

Everyone was so positive and it was hard not to get pulled right into the vortex of stoke and out of the comfort zone. Each activity was beautifully woven into some sort of learning parallel to being an entrepreneur and the group was so dynamic... I love jumping in and helping people out. Pushing people into waves for the first time was so fun for me. To share the stoke of surfing, my life’s passion, I felt like I was more pumped than they were on their first waves...From start to finish, the experience was top notch.
