Fire on Ice
What would happen if you put 100 great Australian minds in the one extreme location at the one time? That was something Australian entrepreneur Julio De Laffitte had to find out. He had a vision — he wanted to take 100 entrepreneurs with brilliant minds to one place to come up with a solution to Australia’s financial woes. Instead of the Australian Government selling off our land, our most precious non-renewable resource, how could business men and women and entrepreneurs work together to keep Australia’s economy strong?
During the Unstoppables’ maiden adventure in Antarctica in February 2015 – not only did 40% of people invest in someone else’s business – they generated the following stellar results.
On Australia Day 2015 a group of 106 incredible entrepreneurs embarked on the adventure of a lifetime to Antarctica. Their goal was to network, collaborate and create sustainable business for the future of Australia. While on the coldest, driest, and windiest continent in the world they experienced a pristine and untouched environment with no connection to the rest of the world (yes, no internet, phones or external distractions). Over the span of 10-days incredible results emerged from this extraordinary think tank — new businesses were formed, strategic partnerships were made, millions of dollars were invested in various companies and charity organisations, entrepreneurs found mentors, new ideas were created and life-long friendships were born.
