Tell us about your life before the venture/ leading up to your venture?

The short story is that I was working for a company that was more focused on the bottom line than valuing their employees. In August 2018, I ended up in the ICU burn center for 10 days with a rare disease.  Because of that experience our passion is to transform today’s leaders and to educate what True Leadership is about.

Tell us something about your organization. What is it about and how is it helpful for people?
