Wind Down

Sharing what we’ve found is the exercise of Wind Down. We will share it if you ask, but we aren’t promoting it. We aren’t promoting it, because this deters from the very exercise.

If you are curiously asking yourself, well isn’t this brief message a promotion of sorts? It’s a fair question, but the answer is no.

The sole reason for this post is to share the key code. Ask, Seek, or Knock, we’re glad to share. But, as for promoting, there isn’t really a need. The scene and circumstances are far better at promoting than we could ever be.

Found Life

A friend first pointed out the obvious. He said, “Every now and then, it really makes sense to find what you’re seeking in that which is all around you.”

A few months later, as I stood outside peering into yet another big picture, it finally took hold. The search is over. Found life. Things haven’t been the same since.

And yet, what about those of us who still aren’t seeing it? Whether they are inside the big picture or standing outside on the fringes, it seems too many are still out and about in some sort of “talking about knowing the way to find life” search parties.

The ironic thing though is the way to find life is to live the life that life is giving us. Found life. Ever since, the talking about knowing has waned to barely a peep.

Studio N – theSpace NYC

Studio N – the Space NYC wishes to congratulate our friends on their recent pilots.

National Startup Association – Eric Egeland

United States of Chile – Alex Matas

Nighttime Design Initiative – Leni Schwendinger

Your efforts to design and create ventures that will make a real impact and can lead to beneficial movements that may just span the globe are truly impressive.

United States of Chile

As a de facto ambassador of Chile to the United States, Alex Matas has set in motion a creative commercial and broadcasting venture that bridges the two countries unlike any previously. Based in NYC, Alex is connecting Chilean companies with U.S. counterparts and vice versa. Then he creates video episodes of these endeavors which will reach millions of people in Chile on the national program Muy Buenos Dias.

Congratulations Alex! The sky is the limit on your exploratory venture.

Nighttime Design Initiative

Congratulations to Leni Schwendinger on her latest endeavors. On May 16th, she announced to London and to the world the International Nighttime Design Initiative. Then as a follow-up, she presented at the pilot launch of the El Space Forum in NYC.

Can’t wait to see where these fantastic pilot designs may take you.

National Startup Association

Congratulations to Eric Egeland for establishing a National Startup Association unlike any other. Recreating success for entrepreneurs, service providers and investors is the core mission for this network of ventures that is growing steadily by encouraging one another to take leaps and bounds.

Beyond the Borders

Are you stretching to figure us out? Are you frustrated that the context seems lacking?

Hang in there with us for a few spins around the merry-go-round. The stretching beyond figuring and pressing beyond context is where one often finds their outside-the-box breakthrough.

We will sketch in some more details as we go forward. But right in this moment, the invite beyond the borders is all we can really offer before showing you what we mean.

Beyond the Borders is baked into the design of finding outside-the-box impacts.

Coming Soon – Santiago

The Next UP Venturings get underway soon.

June 1st, 2018 – Studio N – theSpace launches in Santiago, Chile

Next Gen

There is a brand new mobile studio of next generation entrepreneurs launching out. They are next generation because they have a different mindset than the entrepreneurs that have come before them. These next gen entrepreneurs are ready to move beyond all the splash and glitter and get to the collaborative work that crosses the divide between where they stand today and where they envision being tomorrow.

Are you a next gen entrepreneur?

If so, we would like to invite you to launch out with us.

We are selectively seeking 50 startups from around the globe to join us in a launch spectacular that will work alongside you to see your company truly arrive.

Are you ready to startup?

Come and meet us. We will introduce you to the designers, listen in on your desired course, and then together determine if and how we may go forward.

We are sincere in this offering. No strings attached. If you have what it takes, we are ready to join you in the collaborative work of successfully creating and developing a startup that goes to the next stage.

The power to really fire your startup is found in the mobile studio with other next gen entrepreneurs. We are excited to meet you and look forward to liftoff!

Opposite World

Join the game

Do you ever find yourself just staring at the field from the bench? Do you ever find yourself wondering what it would be like if you took the leap of faith and jumped across the white line onto the playing surface? Do you ever find yourself just thinking about changing the venue of the arena or the uniform or even the sport?

Our best guess is that the answer is “NO”. Our best guess is derived from our own personal experiences of never finding ourselves by doing these things alone. Our best guess is that staring, wondering, and just thinking about doing is insufficient.

Welcome to Opposite World.

From this point moving forward, we’re going to have to sum the courage to enter into our dreams and act upon them in order that they may even possibly be realized. From this point moving forward, we’re not saying that all of our dreams will be realized. But, our best guess is that the probability of success improves greatly once we lift ourselves off the bench.

Welcome to Opposite World.
