Scale your company and life alongside fellow founders

We believe being part of a community of founders is the #1 key to personal development & business growth. You’ll be surrounded by incredible people and hope you’ll meet lifelong friends

Who is this for?

Founders on the brink of a growth inflection point. You crave collaboration and working with fellow founders. You believe a community of founders is a key asset for growth.

Why are we doing this?

We've seen firsthand the rapid acceleration of growth that comes from founder community connections. However, relationships take time - something few founders have. We couldn't find an opportunity our region that provided this type of event - so we created it.

Who is organizing this?

Founders like you. We’re a collective team of founders from various startups. We’ve raised millions of dollars, built audiences of 100k's, personally invested in 100's of startups, and are building startups now.

What will beach bleisurers learn?

How to raise capital - traditional, crowd, and more. Revenue Ops with ambassadors. Content creation. Partnering creators & influencers with startups. Growing your personal brand & business brand through public speaking. How to make amazing food!

Our team’s vision for the event is to have one of the most badass getaways in the region for founders  looking to grow personally, scale their companies, and make lifelong friends. No speakers. No panels. No pitches unless asked. Just topics, share your experience sessions, and lots of fun on the beach together.

This is for founders focused on getting past the grind to the next level

Any business, restaurant to space tech. 

$300 per person if you are accepted. Due to the awesome sponsorship from NC IDEA, we were able to reduce costs.

We’ll pay for lodging, dinners, and snacks in the house.
Travel is not included
No.You’ll have to figure out how to get to the house.

We’ll have limited parking for those accepted. 

You’ll be staying in a beach house, but you aren’t guaranteed the master bedroom. You might be in a bunk bed, rollout bed, or feel free to bring your hammock. Check out those views from The House. 🙂 If you expect to be pampered, this isn’t the trip for you. 🙂

You’ll have 15 minutes over a zoom or Google Meet.

Mentors will lead a group session on a different topic e.g. brand, partnering with creators, revenue ops, #CapitalStacking, and more. Fellow founders are encouraged to lead a topic too during break time throughout the day.

We expect this founder to founder mentorship to be the most valuable time of the entire trip. We hope that you make friends that continue to support each other well past this trip.

Food prepared by fellow founders. If you have any food allergies, please let us know.

I hope so, unless we’ve been replaced by AI + robotics that some founder’s startup invented. Shoot us an email at [email protected] and our AI …ummm… we mean humans will get back to you.
