The Future of Business

Entrepreneurship is about more than building a product and launching a business.

It’s about conditioning your mind to attack problems head-on, find innovative solutions, cope with extreme resource limitations, communicate a vision of something that doesn’t exist, and navigate complex human relationships.

Exosphere’s entrepreneurship course will empower you with new mental models to balance these competing demands while pushing you to focus on executing on the launch of your MVP day after day.

“The only thing worse than starting something and failing… is not starting something.”

Seth Godin, Squidoo founder, author and blogger

FAQ

Exosphere Academy attracts people from all different stages in life. There have been 16 year olds who wanted to learn new skills during their summers. We've had both current college students and those who skipped the traditional university experience. Then people in their 30s who were looking for a fresh start in a different field. We've even had students over 50 who realized it’s never too late to learn new skills and start making a change.

Bottom line, the Academy is for people who see and want more from life. The traditional script just doesn't work for us.
It all started in 2012. Since then, Exosphere Academy has conducted 9 on-campus programs and just over 40 shorter workshops in cities all over the world. Learn more on the about page.
