About the argonauts

A global community to nurture transformative leaders

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 exhausted mentalities such as zero-sum economics and scarcity-based politics: Our mission is to create and harmonize personal, professional and relationship prosperity for transformative leaders and their organizations in a global community of trust and respect.

Inspired by the Argonaut heroes of the 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 transformative leaders empowers us to bring innovation to life and aliveness to the world for lasting, true prosperity – encompassing business, personal development, social and sustainability activism as well as the arts, be it 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.
