A GROWING MOVEMENT
At the Wisdom 2.0 conference in 2013, Founder Soren Gordhamer, asked his friend and colleague Paul Zelizer to vision, facilitate and lead a breakout session focused on integrating wisdom and entrepreneurship.
The energy from that session was powerful. Paul, an entrepreneur himself and already an established coach and mentor to other wisdom-based entrepreneurs, responded by forming Wisdompreneurs along with Co-Founder and Wisdom 2.0 staff member Alison Raby. Together, with trusted advisors, they embarked on a journey; one which both supported an expanding community and a growing movement.
Wisdompreneurs has a twofold, highly pragmatic mission: To help wisdom-based practitioners succeed in business, and to help entrepreneurs incorporate wisdom practices into their lives and their organizations.
Wisdompreneurs is also part of a larger vision: to contribute to a wiser and more just economic system; to shift the criteria for “success” worldwide so that we include our own well-being, our capacity to connect with ourselves, to give back to others, and to bring joy into our lives.
Wisdompreneurs has grown from a team of two to an incredible and widely diverse group of thirty eight dedicated individuals. Hosts a dynamic, global online community with over 20,000 members.
Builds crowd sourced platforms that provide information to individuals and organizations; assisting them in finding, creating, and maintaining meaningful livelihoods.
Creates and disseminates programs and fosters new initiatives. Convenes events and retreats, offers services that provide training, networking, real-time educational resources, best practices, ways to connect, or simply play with like minded professionals across the globe.
Has developed a robust membership directory and private forum, hosts WPTV, facilitates our Leave A Trace Program and our L I F T initiative.
Created Circle of Circles: A program fostering support for community members’ business endeavors.
Is fiercely committed to diversity and inclusion.
Important Note: As of December 2017, Paul Zelizer is a former co-founder of Wisdompreneurs.
