Did you know that Google ranked "Hero" 
as the #1 Word in Search for 2019?

Why? Because people are realizing we need to do something. People are realizing it is up to us to BE Heroes; not just to watch stories about them in the movies; not just to assume that Heroes aren't actually real. 

Hero University is about fostering and connecting people from the domain with the most opportunity to make an impact: purpose-driven entrepreneurship. The teachers we bring in are real-world Heroes. They may not fly or shoot lasers, but they do much more. They impact thousands of people. They change people's lives for the better.

And guess what? You have that same potential. We believe attending Hero University and joining our Legion of Heroes is one of the best ways you can ensure that you will make a positive impact in the world.

You are thinking about life after graduation

You want to make sure work and life after graduation is as good as possible. By attending Hero University, you will meet great people living incredible lives and will gain the inspiration you are looking for.

You are Entrepreneurial

Whether you have an idea for a product now or if you simply want to explore entrepreneurship as an avenue to create impact, Hero University will give you a blueprint to create an established brand for the future.

You want to explore

For many graduating students, the question of what to do after college is the biggest decision they have had to make. Traveling and meeting like-minded people from diverse backgrounds gives an invaluable perspective towards making those decisions.

You care deeply about making an impact

Say you have already landed a job in consulting, nonprofit work, or another field; or say you are still finding that perfect fit. No matter what, the skills of a purpose-driven entrepreneur; from leadership, to marketing, to hiring, and more are essential for those who want to make the biggest impact possible.

Canggu, Bali, Indonesia
The Transformational and Digital Nomad Capital of the World

Home to a conscious digital nomad community of high-level entrepreneurs, world-renowned yoga schools, and healthy restaurants, Canggu is rich with beaches, and nearby to Ubud, the personal development capitol of the world.

At Hero we like to use the term Holistic Intensity. We have 
experienced first-hand the stress of being an entrepreneur 
in the heart of busy cities such as San Francisco that easily 
lead to burnout.

In Bali, you will experience effortless flow because you 
will be surrounded by people who are as mindful of their health as they are of their efficiency at work. 

Bali, in short, will show you a new way of living. 
What people are saying
"Before this course I had a hard time deciding the life I wanted to live. I felt lonely as one of the only entrepreneurial people I knew as well as one of the only people I knew who loved meditation. Throughout the program I learned how to create balance in every aspect of my life. I learned so much about not only building a business but on making an impact while creating a beautiful lifestyle for myself as well. I now have an incredible vision of how to create the life that I want."

"Before working with Hero I was in a place where I was finding the next step for my life. During the program I experienced so much love and support in my full power. I was able to both structure my business and build so many skills in meditation and personal development. During the Hero program I onboarded my first clients, started teaching my first workshops, built my website, and have a huge amount of energy moving forward.

"Before the Hero program I didn't understand the importance of personal development even though I was experiencing high levels of anxiety in my life. Through Hero I learned how to manage and face my emotions and am now able to transform them in such a powerful way rather than avoiding them. I feel like I know myself at a far deeper level. I now understand there is a whole world to explore in the area of emotional transformation which is invaluable to me as an aspiring entrepreneur"
Do I have to have a product idea in mind?
Nope! Throughout the program, you will experience profound personal growth and gain insights into how to solve global problems in a way most college graduates have never experienced. If you do have a product idea, you can still propose it to your team if it seems like a good fit. Otherwise, there will be many opportunities to develop an idea with your team. 

Do I have to have experience in entrepreneurship?
While experience in entrepreneurship helps with the fellowship application, you do not have to have entrepreneurial experience to apply or to attend Hero University. We believe diversity in experience no matter your major is a valuable asset for a team to have. The 3 weeks of courses before
