Unlocking Your Inner Enterpriser

Helping Midlifers Discover the Entrepreneur Within

The Midlife Enterpriser is an “Entrepreneurship School” designed specifically for mature professionals who are considering launching a venture, be it a passion-project, a side-hustle, a full-time venture or a startup.

Most startup bootcamps, accelerators and entrepreneurship training programs are targeted at the millennials in their mid-twenties who are aspiring early stage or wannabe tech startups or social entrepreneurs.

The Midlife Enterpriser is special as it focuses on helping people typically over the age of 40 to transform their professional experience, vast networks, wisdom and passion into meaningful and sustainable ventures that will solve real problems and create impact.

Why Basecamp?

“The process of building a company is like you’re trying to climb Mount Everest, but nobody ever got to the top of Mount Everest without going to Basecamp first.” Vinod Khosla, Co-Founder of Sun Microsystems

Our programme’s name, Basecamp, was inspired by the famous Mount Everest Basecamps, of which there are only two – one on the Nepal side, and the other on the Tibet side of Everest.

Both Basecamps are located at approximately 17,000 feet, posing a considerable challenge for hikers to get to before they even brave the summit. The Basecamp most importantly provides the hikers with the opportunity to test their spirit, contemplate their journey and reflect their reasons for attempting the climb. Basecamp helps to fully prepare the hiker, giving them a glimpse of what is ahead.

Entrepreneurship demands deep life-work experience and knowledge, an agile mind to that is not afraid to be wrong and a willingness to always be learning, the ability to embrace ambiguity and uncertainty and to become better with greater uncertainty and chaos – developing resilience (anti-fragile) and tenacity, much like what is required to scale Everest.

We have designed Basecamp to help you prepare for this amazing journey of venturing!
