Have we done this before?

Yes! In 2019 the day after Running Remote conference we endured into the highlands of Bali, Indonesia with 7 founders. The mastermind went on for 3 days, and some still talk about it.

It’s fascinating to have seen the growth of those companies in the last few years. 

We have since dreamt of doing another IRL mastermind, but here we are with something even better in Portugal!
