Exobase is the evolution of the principles and lessons learned by Exosphere's founding team and our global community of members and advisors. These successes and failures have been distilled into two days of intense, focused learning.

Exobase will introduce the experience of the entrepreneurial mindset, intentional community, and self-reliance, as it relates to life-long learning and personal growth. Participants in Exobase will gain new perspective on their current career trajectory, understand what skills and ideas will be most valuable for their future endeavors, and be exposed to the real-life lessons from others who drew a line in the sand and took action on creating the life they wanted.

"New York Exobase was an incredible experience for me--the start of a new life journey. I haven't found anyone else talking about these theories and mindsets.
