  • Kepa Acero

    Kepa Acero

    Kepa Acero
    Professional Surfer, Professional Globetrotter
    Kepa was european surfing junior champion at the age of 18.

    After traveling the world on the surfing profesional competition for years , Kepa Acero was not finding what he needed. Rather than focusing on contests and being caught up in one thing in life, he decided he needed to explore his other interests in the world. With very little knowledge behind the lens, Kepa purchased a few cameras, got an around the world ticket, and set off to document the people, cultures and waves he was visiting.

    He explored the world from Antartica to Alaska, Africa, Asia and all over.

    Kepa now makes a living documenting his solo trips, documenting the other travelers, waves, and culture he comes across along his journey.

    Coss Marte

    Coss Marte
    CEO of ConBody
    Coss Marte was sent to jail as the ringleader of a multi-million dollar cocaine operation. He was also grossly overweight and warned by his physician that his current lifestyle, if left unchecked, would likely kill him.

    Faced with this grim prognosis, Coss started to get in shape using the tools he had — his prison cell and his own body weight. Within six months he lost 70 pounds and replicated his successful formula of body weight exercises with 20 other inmates. Then he launched ConBody a prison style bootcamp that has gained over 20,000+ clients and hires formerly incarcerated individuals to teach fitness classes. Since the launch of his company he’s been featured in over 200 major media outlets such as NBC, CNN, The New York Times, TED Talks, and Men’s Fitness. He’s also won major pitch competitions such as Defy Ventures, Pitch for Good by TOM’s shoes and the YPO shark tank competition, which combined raised $200,000.

  • Jason Eckenroth

    Jason Eckenroth

    Jason Eckenroth
    Co-founder, Sovereignty
    I am passionate about purpose-driven, core-value led businesses. I believe businesses can create success because of their culture, not despite it. I bootstrapped my first company, ShipCompliant over a 16yr time frame to 75 employees and $12M ARR.

    Customers chose ShipCompliant, not for our features, functionality or price, but ultimately because they liked “how” we did business (i.e.: the values that drove our decisions). It’s the greatest competitive differentiation.

    I believe in the power and possibility of self-funded companies and work to educate and empower entrepreneurs tackling the exciting challenge of building a customer-funded business.

    I am currently on sabbatical in Barcelona with my family. When not catching up on life, I work with self-funded, independent, and profitable companies to define and scale their cultures and product growth strategies, and guide them toward a path to sovereignty.
