(Mike Brcic, MMA founder)
Hey. My name is Mike.
I'm a serial entrepreneur and founder of Sacred Rides Mountain Bike Adventures (world's "#1 mountain bike tour company" - National Geographic Adventure), founder of Bikes Without Borders, founder of Project Wildfire, former Dean of Social Innovation at the world-famous Centre for Social Innovation. and former entrepreneur-in-residence at the Toronto Public Library.
I'm also a father to 3 amazing kids, a nonstop explorer and learner, and a passionate community-builder.
Our mission is simple: connect you with other amazing entrepreneurs in a way that facilitates deep. meaningful connections and relevant learning, while having an absolute s!@#load of fun in the process - so that you can envision and live an even bigger and better future. (And do it in the world's most spectacular places. With hot tubs.)
NOTE: Community and connection doesn't start and end with our events; we continue the tribe-building with ongoing events and get-togethers for alumni on a regular basis.
I was driven to start Mastermind Adventures after attending several entrepreneur-focused events in 2016 and 2017. At these exclusive events, I connected with incredible people from around the world... but I always had a deep hunger to spend less time in conference rooms and more time outside, challenging myself in the company of others and connecting on a deeper level.
From this hunger, MMA was born. I believe the best connections are made while summiting a mountain; the deepest bonds made while enjoying a meal in a remote location; the best conversations while waiting your turn on a challenging climb.
If the following words resonate with you, then you may be a good fit for one of my events.
NOTE: 85% of our attendees are invited personally by me, but a few spots are available on each adventure by application. Apply today to be considered for participation, but only if you resonate with the following:
* WE GO FARTHER TOGETHER
* UNBRIDLED OPTIMISM IS OUR DEFAULT
* WE ASK BIG QUESTIONS AND NEVER STOP ASKING
* WE ENTER THE FOG WITHOUT KNOWING THE OUTCOME
* WE BELIEVE LIFE IS TOO IMPORTANT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY
* WE DEVELOP RESILIENCE THROUGH HARDSHIP AND CHALLENGE
* WE BELIEVE RESILIENCE IS THE KEY TO ACHIEVING A MEANINGFUL LIFE
* WE TAME OUR EGOS RATHER THAN ALLOWING THEM TO CONTROL US
* WE ARE HERETICS WHO SEE THE WORLD AS IT MIGHT BE RATHER THAN HOW IT IS
