Anders Gustavsson was a tech entrepreneur from the early age of 18-30 years old. Over the years he was in and out of various startups which led him to mixed levels of “success”. The all too normal “startup life” led him to a screeching big halt in 2012 after being face to face with the reality of massive debt, lack of joy and purpose, and an unsustainable future. In a bold move he quit tech life, said good bye to long days in front of the computer and went into nature to ask for support to invent a new “back to the land” community rich reality truly designed to be regenerative for our future. Today, Anders is the co-founder and visionary of the Heartland Collective, a 25 acre lake front retreat and business incubator. He is also a co-founder of CoLab Campout, which is setting itself up to become the premier microfestival model to help collaboratively build new intentional communities.
