I’m joining the Cocoon event because of many good recommendations from my network. My goal is to meet like-minded peers and to get concrete advice on developing myself as a leader and as an individual.

On Founders’ Day, I will share my journey and I am happy to contribute to this event as I have received from .Cocoon much more than an invoice can cover. I really want to give back with my support.

Afternoon 1 PM

Let's look at your business from a new perspective. This exclusive event is only for people who have a curiosity about life, business and themselves.

As this is an event for experienced entrepreneurs you will learn to see your business challenges from a different perspective that helps to find solutions faster. 

What do you struggle with the most? Sales, fundraising or team? Let's tackle it.


After four hours of self-discovery and networking, you are invited to join a fine dinner with participants and mentors. The official dinner ends at 8 PM but everyone is welcome to stay for longer to network and enjoy the evening.

Dmitri Sarle

Mentorship through action. Mentorship for me is not just about sharing knowledge. It is about the shift of perception and helping others to find the right answers for themselves. Where lies action, lies feedback and through feedback - we can find solutions and meaning.


Hristo Neiland

I believe that all our barriers are made by ourselves, therefore with proper support, we can also take them down.


Ansis Farhad Lipenitis

I support entrepreneurs in their path to True self and wellbeing.
Into self-discovery since 2013 (psychotherapy, psychology, studies, mentee, mentor, individual work). Entrepreneur since 2003 (software, B2B, B2C, startups). Interests: mystic, nature, hiking, social dance. Keywords: straightforward, deep, confronting, caring, analytical, sensing.


Triin Sarri

I believe our perception of the outer world is the reflection of our inner world. If we arrange and coordinate our inner realms, it will also reflect in the physical world.


Carl Frauenstein

My “answers” are only an understanding which leads me to my next question. In all I do I seek to learn about myself, about my world. As I gain insight, that insight in itself alters how I see things which then leads me to my next contemplation, based on a different understanding.


Rein Lemberpuu

I see true knowledge as a personal experience and personal power as result of impeccable execution in all daily matters. I stand for personal power and freedom from social conditioning. I represent not only passive acceptance of what is but also active participation in life to fight for what I believe in.


Anu Martinson

I am a door-opener helping people discover their inner superpowers. I have been on the path of self-development since 2005 and worked with quality, process and people management since 2010. Interests: nature, people, photography, mystics, dancing, handicrafts. Keywords: soft, but straight; curious; deep and sensing; positive and caring.


Ingmar Elm

The moments that mostly remind me how much I love my job are when a group of sceptical individualists discover that something special has happened and they feel the effect of trust and cooperation fulfilling the core need of belonging.


Martins Bicevskis

Co-Founder at Association of Technology and Startup Transfers
I have been a mentor in Latvian Junior Achievement Leaders program for 6 years and 3 years in .Cocoon.
My strength is team building and development. I notice talent, let it grow and flourish.


Una Klapkalne

Although it might sound idealistic or naive I believe each of us have to become better person and thus make life better for society as well.  This is my driving force.

Rotko, Janne (1).png

We broke 500K in monthly revenue now in September. When we first met with .Cocoon about 9 months ago, our monthly revenue record was 230K. It has been an excellent year for us and we feel that .Cocoon has helped us a lot in our growth story, thank you!
