It took twenty years, five failed businesses and three unsuccessful careers to build the overnight success that is $100m global online wine startup Vinomofo.
Vinomofo started life back in 2007 in the garage of brothers-in-law and fellow wine geeks, Justin Dry and Andre Eikmeier, who just wanted to do something cool for wine lovers and producers.
Growing increasingly concerned with the way the world was headed, André knew he could either keep complaining about it at dinner parties, or he could try to do something about it.
In 2018, André founded Good Empire, a global community platform for projects that unite and empower people to live more connected, sustainable, and impactful lives.
André shares a very real and raw account of the failures, triumphs and hard and vital lessons that have shaped his business ventures and him as an entrepreneur. This is the real truth - the fears - the impact of being an entrepreneur on friends and family - the soul-searching.
Andre will share how to create a sustainable, enduring human culture, that is not afraid to fail; the Human Business Manifesto - a model for changing the culture of business for good; and a new perspective on life that just may be the secret to happiness.
