On June 29th – as a side event of PIRATE Summit – we organize a one-day retreat specifically designed for entrepreneurs and leaders.

We create a safe space to learn, dive into new experiences and connect with each other. A space that combines deep conversations with hands-on experiences to gain deeper insights, see different perspectives, and take more deliberate action.

The participants will be curated to ensure a good fit.


In the past two decades, we have participated in dozens of retreats. Some have been extremely helpful. Some have even been life changing. Others had little impact.

PIRATE Circle is a collection of the best formats we have found for a one-day event for entrepreneurs. 

To deliver the best experience, we have partnered with the MASTERMIND MOVEMENT and exceptional instructors. All of them absolute experts in their field.




Mastermind Circles are one of the most efficient ways to gain clarity on challenges you are facing.

They are small, intense and honest peer-to-peer exchange groups. They follow a tried and tested agenda to get results.

We are carefully curating each group to ensure the most effective learning experience.


Experience Circles will help you discover untapped potential and develop a richer understanding of yourself and the world around you.

It is about fully immersing yourself into a novel experience. These Circles will be guided by exceptional instructors that help you step out of your comfort zone and feel safe doing it.


The whole day is shaped around creating meaningful connection. With others, but also yourself.

Moments of contemplation and reflection alternate with moments of joy, outburst group activities.

When you leave, you will not only know yourself better. You will have found a community of like-minded people. Deep bonds that may last a lifetime.



We are thrilled that the MASTERMIND MOVEMENT will help us shape this day into an exceptional experience.

The MASTERMIND MOVEMENT is a dynamic community of entrepreneurs and leaders. In carefully curated peer coaching groups, they share their diverse experiences and expertise, supporting each other in learning, growing, and overcoming challenges.

In a confidential setting, surrounded by like-minded individuals, experienced MASTERMIND PILOTs create a safe space and facilitate focused, authentic, and meaningful conversations.

At PIRATE Circle, you will get a unique opportunity to experience the magic of their work.


The retreat happens on June, 29th. The day starts at 9 am, and we will finish at around 8 pm. For the best experience, we would advise being there for the entire day.

The day is organized around deep conversations, new experiences, connection and various activities.

All of them organized in Circles. Some small, some bigger. Each Circle will be enabled by experienced guides.

We will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. All meals will be vegetarian. Vegan options will be available as well.
