Learn how to become a Startup Entrepreneur
Entrepreneurship is hard we teach how to asses risks
We believe that starting a company and growing it is a hard and risky task where you need to be prepared, focused and a bit crazy.
Just like Kitesurfing, in a business, you need to learn the basics and try and try again before you find the perfect harmony with your team and the market.
Just like kitesurfing you are going to make mistakes and fall, again and again, until eventually you find the perfect harmony between your body, your board, the wind and the waves, only when you are in perfect harmony and your body and mind becomes one thing with the forces of nature the kite starts working and you feel you are flying above water.
In a startup company you will be loaded with many things to control, from product development, to market fit, team work, customer care, investors' deals and so on...
And until you find the perfect harmony you will try and try again your company strategies.
Kitesurf is the new golf for Entrepreneurs but much better because it resembles all the characteristics of risky businesses and is so satisfying.
At the beginning you are scared, you don’t know what to do, all odds are against you but with the proper training and determination you will make it.
Kiteboarding changes lives. It just does.
This resilience directly translates over to being a business owner.
As an entrepreneur, resilience is key. Building a business is often about putting out fires every day. Something always pops up. Something always goes wrong. And it’s your job, as the boss, to come up with a solution. Building resilience is a key component to being a strong business owner and leader. Learn to kiteboard and you can take on the world!
It makes you
Learning to kiteboard builds your resilience. Things will go wrong and all you can do is deal with the situation. You put one foot ahead of the other in an attempt to just. Keep going.
