Let us surprise you with a mind-blowing yet relaxing program where you can meet the other Escapers and do everything what your ambitious heart desires.
* The program is subject due to changes, but we will keep you updates about the further program!

Dave is a FB Ads Specialist and found a new client, valued at USD 50K through one instagram story he was published in.

Luca is a Data Scientist and dreamt for years to quit his job and do what he is passionate about: Giving workshops focussed on personal and professional growth. After the Escape Luca quit his job and started his own workshop facilitation business.
Hanna is an inbound marketing and automation expert. She was looking for solutions on how to scale her business. During our experience she got input from the others on how to take the first steps and now she hired a team which takes away all the small tasks so she can focus on the bigger picture.
