Hi, I’m Thomas Knoll

5x founder, 2x exits, 1000x lessons learned ◆ I believe in you

I started building online communities in 1996 and was the Community Architect at Zappos.com. After working for multiple startups with exits I tried building five of my own. That led to two exits, multiple failures, and several lifetimes of lessons learned.

I have mentored more than 1000 founders and leaders through Techstars, 500Global, Hatchet Ventures, Gener8or, and other entrepreneur organizations. And I got to work with over 300 of them for 3+ months.

My Ikigai is guiding people through Self Healing Leadership – a practice designed to (1) help leaders recognize the thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that create resistance in their decisions, conversations, and actions; (2) heal what holds them back or what they are holding back; and (3) bring their truest Self into their mission.

Oh, and I fall in love with almost everyone I meet.
