About the argonauts

The global community to nurture authentic leaders and their organizations

The Argonauts community was formed with the intention to create a new global community manifesting human aliveness in the digital age. We’re evolving past bankrupt ideologies such as zero-sum economics and scarcity-based politics: Our mission is to create and harmonize personal, professional and relationship prosperity for authentic leaders and their organizations in a global community of mutual trust and respect.

Inspired by the Argonaut heroes of Greek myth, we are entrepreneurial leaders who define ourselves by the quality and sustainability of the virtues we cherish and the impact we create, combined with the courage to take risks.

This identity of authentic leaders empowers us to bring transformation to life and aliveness to the world for lasting, true prosperity – encompassing business and personal development, social and sustainability activism as well as the arts, whether in for-profit or not-for-profit endeavors.

What we do

The Argonauts' Formula for Entrepreneurial Prosperity

The Argonauts’ goal is wholeness and balance: To succeed with fulfillment, to prosper with meaning and to feel fully alive. 

Prosperity is the product of success and fulfillment: Achievement of material wealth multiplied by the feeling of aliveness that comes with accomplishment. To succeed, leaders multiply innovative boldness, calculated risk-taking, and high trust. The Argonauts help leaders reduce risks and increase chances of success by providing actionable knowledge, relevant connections and trusting relationships with those who are prospering.
