Entrepreneurship is a lonely gig. According to our research, most entrepreneurs work in isolation. At the same time, our studies have revealed that the strongest predictor of entrepreneur success is the frequency and quality of engagements between entrepreneurs. That's why we are fostering a community of technologists, leaders and creatives to walk alongside you as you change the world.

About Our 'Chefs' 

A 'Heavy Chef' is someone who can speak with authority about a particular thing because they have real experience doing that thing. A Heavy Chef could be someone world-famous or someone who has been performing notable work in the background. We have hosted 100s of technologists, leaders and creatives on our platform to speak about an ever-expanding curriculum of topics. If you'd like to suggest someone who has an epic entrepreneurial recipe to share, let us know!
