October 16th - 18th 2022
Connect with founders building real world solutions, and discover the tools to growth - as a team
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
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.
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.
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.

We’ll be staying in a beautiful oceanfront home on Wrightsville Beach, NC. There’s enough room to sleep 14 of us comfortably and 3 bathrooms
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.

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.
No, 0% equity.
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. 🙂
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.

This project received support from NC IDEA.
We’re like an accelerator meets a venture studio and had a baby. Choosing to be community-centric vs. industry specific, startups in our community-owned accelerator are valued at over $120m and over half of the investment has come from the crowd.
We’re a Public Benefit LLC with a mission to create a level playing field. Our goal is to help 1,000 founders grow through the crowd by 2030.
