"It's always about means and ends. Exobase is a mean to look firstly into yourself. The best way I've ever experienced, because they figured out how to put the right words in the right places and help you discover your own thoughts.
There is no start-up, university, school, or incubator which teaches you to go so deep into yourself. A radical dedication to the truth is what makes Exobase really different. I found myself wanting more and more of that--because the truth deep in yourself is always asking to come out. The ultimate end is the truth."

"This was a great experience for me even though I didn't really know the people involved and the entire project in general. But I have never met anyone who can link so many seemingly different disciplines and philosophies. And more importantly, make these things work for people. By work I mean that these disciplines made us think, guess, ask, and interact with each other in so little amount of time. I feel lucky having participated in Exobase and I hope as many people as possible can experience it. I like to think of Exosphere as a great, powerful "enzyme" that can accelerate and make "reactions" that otherwise could stagnate forever."

"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. They express the spirit of a real pragmatic community where I found inspirations, confirmations, and people who share similar principles and ideas. These two days represent for me the fuel of an internal and external engine."
-Tiziana Guarini // Exobase NYC Participant
"Exobase was an experience that made me ask myself some basic questions that I had avoided in my daily life. These questions are so simple and easy to ask yet so hard to answer:
Why am I here? Who am I? Who am I not?
My assumptions about entrepreneurship were challenged when we started talking about startups. Having actual entrepreneurs in the room, open to conversation and passionate about their work, obliterated the mental image of gods walking the earth I imagined them to be before. This experience rendered the idea of me beginning my own entrepreneurial journey a real possibility, which felt - and still does feel - frightening and exhilarating at the same time. When they then introduced to us the practical tools to actually go and realize our visions, every conceivable barrier to action was removed. This was the point at which I made a commitment to become self-reliant, to bear the pains of fear and failure, accepting no excuses in myself and others and speaking the truth as I see it to those around me.
