Mastermind Adventures Amazon
Join 29 of your fellow entrepreneurs in the deepest reaches of the Amazon basin - at the world-renowned Tambopata Research Centre, 7 hours upriver from Puerto Maldonado - for an incredible, intimate seven-day experience that's equal parts adventure, scientific exploration, boundary pushing, learning… and deep connection with your fellow adventures.
What's in store? Seven days of adventures and activities in the heart of the Amazon, seven days of curated sharing, learning and connection, incredible meals, a lifetime of memories and friendships, and a big dose of the unexpected.
Out theme for MMA Amazon is community: what true community means, how to leverage community to create value, and how to build powerful communities within our businesses. The theme of community will inform our activities, workshops and talks.
Our guest speaker for this event will be the legendary explorer Wade Davis. Best described as Canada’s Indiana Jones, Wade has been named by the National Geographic Society as Explorer-in-Residence and one of the Explorers for the Millennium, he has been described as “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life’s diversity.”
Wade spent several years in the deepest reaches of the Amazon as a plant explorer, living among fifteen indigenous groups while making some 6000 botanical collections. His experiences in the Amazon were the basis of his famed book One River, one of many books he has written.
Wade will be joining MMA Amazon to share his stories of living in the Amazon, along with his knowledge of the plants and people of the area and his own thoughts on community based on his travels around the world.
Adventure is always centre stage at an MMA event.
At MMA Amazon, adventures will take place in the wild Amazon jungle surrounding the Tambopata Research Centre. We'll have thrilling excursions into the jungle with local experts, challenging hikes, cultural visits, opportunities to contribute to actual scientific projects (multiple new species have been discovered in the area surrounding TRC), and much more.
Our adventures are designed to challenge you and connect you with your fellow entrepreneurs, and are led by certified, professional local guides.
Hike through the dense jungle and discover an entirely new world.
The Amazon basin is the most biodiverse region on the planet - we’ll get up close with its species.
…AND MUCH MORE
From canopy tours to scaling towering trees and sunset cruises, there’s so much to do at TRC.

LEARNING AND CONNECTING
Schedule of Events
Learning and Connection are at the heart of a Mastermind Adventures experience.
Learning experiences are structured for maximum benefit (with scheduled talks, forums and workshops with your peers).
Connection with your fellow entrepreneurs happens organically - through adventure, downtime, and deep conversations.
LEARNING COMPONENTS OF AN MMA EXPERIENCE:
Small-group forums: You’ll be placed in a small forum with 6-7 of your fellow entrepreneurs. Over the course of the forum sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to share and get feedback on some of your biggest life and business challenges (and provide feedback to others).
Workshops: Workshops are peer-delivered and cover a variety of topics including lifestyle design, marketing, finance, relationships and family life, and much more. They are designed for immediate insights and takeaways.
Evening Talks: After dinner, TED-style, informal fireside chats offer you an opportunity to go deeper on various life and business topics.
In small groups, you’ll share your biggest challenges and benefit from the wisdom of a wicked-smart peer group.
WORKSHOPS WITH YOUR PEERS
Learn from your peers, many of whom are industry leaders. Workshops are structured for maximum benefit and immediate takeaways.
After dinner, we'll head to a secluded and inspiring location on the property for our evening talks: TED-style wisdom from the community of your peers.
