Friendly founders focused on sustainable success.

Whether you consider yourself an entrepreneur, a bootstrapped founder, a maker or otherwise—if you’re focused on sustainable growth, you belong at Calm Company Summit.

With the goal of breaking down barriers between speakers and attendees, all panels and workshops are led by your peers: incredible, low-ego founders who have actually done the thing you’re trying to do—whether that’s building a profitable business for the long term, or locking down a 7-figure exit.

Grab a boat, some oars, and another founder (or the kids) and set out for a mellow paddle on the lake.



Conquer the on-site climbing tower, or set out for some local bouldering if that’s more your speed.
