COACHING & WORKSHOPS

Personalized to meet you exactly where you are.

Startup Island coaches are fellow explorers with resounding entrepreneurial spirit. They understand that success looks different for everyone. This understanding, along with a wide array of life and business experience, has made them the brilliant creators, founders, speakers, marketers, and lifestyle-designers that they are today.

A select group of coaches are on-site at every Startup Island trip, not to tell you "how" to do something, but to guide you as you find a way that works for you. They'll also join you for a surf, on the zipline course, or at the hot springs, allowing for meaningful connections with your coaches to form organically.

After your trip, you'll have lifetime access to the wider mentor network of 40 + coaches spanning different cities, industries, and disciplines. 

ISLAND OFFICE HOURS

One-on-one sessions with your coach are meant to dive deep into whatever you're working on...be it personal, professional, or a combination of both. Your final session of each trip will end with you and your coach creating a plan of action to hold you accountable moving forward.

WORKSHOPS & FACILITATED DISCUSSIONS

Group discussions led by your coaches in inspiring locations. Each workshop is designed to unlock and expand your entrepreneurial-mindset, fuel meaningful connections, and foster personal growth. Topics range from Wholehearted Leadership to Turning Your Passion Into Profit.
