I’m Mark McGuire. I hope you enjoy this site where I write about slow travel adventures (often by bike, sail or canoe), entrepreneurship and other stuff that interests me.
A bit about me:
- I’ve co-founded 5 start-ups. 2 had successful exits, 2 were shut down without a successful outcome and 1 (rebranded recently from Gravy to Spin) is still active. I wrote this post-mortem about the experience of shutting down the start-up Nextt in 2014.
- In 2016, I moved (with my family) from Madison, WI to Minneapolis, MN to open up gener8tor Minnesota, part of the gener8tor start up accelerator family.
- In 2015, I completed a sabbatical with my family, and shared a lot of the experience on this site. We spent five months traveling the Caribbean, mostly on a sailboat. If interested, you can read my posts about that adventure here.
- I’m an entrepreneur and I believe that everyone can use entrepreneurial thinking to help design a meaningful life.
