The Midlife Enterpriser is a “venture school” designed to help individuals in their midlife navigate the uncertain world.
Stemming from our worldview that the future is open ended, cannot be predicted and is shapeable by human action, we believe that one of the most defining skills needed by individuals to navigate such an uncertain world is the science and art of venturing.
By harnessing the wisdom, experience and the vast network that is already within the grasp of midlifers, we help midlifers transform these resources into meaningful and sustainable projects or endeavors - be it a company they want to launch, or a venture they want to invest in or explore various other options to help them sustain or increase their net-worth.
Basecamp, our flagship programme at Midlife Enterpriser, is designed to help unlock your inner enterpriser by helping you to master the art and science of venture creation – the mindsets, skill-sets, and action-sets needed to take an idea into the world to create impact – be it within the organization or as an entrepreneurial venture.
Midlife Enterpriser has brought together over five decades of combined expertise and insights gleaned from seeding, nurturing, educating and mentoring entrepreneurs globally from all stages of their ventures in designing Basecamp.
A meticulously designed programme by passionate, experienced leaders in the field of entrepreneurship development, Basecamp prepares you for your enterprising journey by equipping you with the necessary tools, confidence, and a community of mentors to support you on your climb to success!
You are an experienced career professional with more than 15 years of experience in the corporate world. You are keen to learn & embrace the “venturer” mindset and skillset to help your organization in its innovation journey.
You have been contemplating the “2nd Act” of your life: the possibility of transitioning from the corporate world to a world where you want to create your own project or venture. You are thinking of a possible “side-hustle” before you take the plunge.
You are ready to take the plunge - to launch your own project or company or a not-for-profit or even to go on and help someone else in their business.
“I have been in the corporate world for more than 25 years. When I stumbled upon this programme I thought it was really amazing that I could actually meet and have powerful conversations with people who are of the same life chapter as me. Everyone should have more entrepreneurial thinking because entrepreneurship means when you do something you have to develop and make an impact on everyone around you.” - Nadiah Tan Abdullah,
HR Corporate Professional & Basecamp Graduate
Midlife need not be a crisis. It can be a period of creation. At Basecamp, you learn that every next act is an act of creation, and you learn how to create something not from resources you don’t have but your means - resources within your means.
Our content is robust. It is based on solid academic research and practice. However, it’s the deep enriching conversations we have with our participants on their journey in transition that truly makes the program truly rewarding for both the participants and facilitator(s).
You can’t create in isolation. Your venture or project or anything you do is with others. Our program aims to build a community that supports each other in their journey.
“Action learning is very much part of Basecamp as entrepreneurship goes no where without action! This programme has not been designed about entrepreneurship but for entrepreneurship so you can make your dreams come alive rather than sit back and waiting for something to happen.” - Dr Shailendra Vyakarnam,
Co-Founder, Midlife Enterpriser
