SOULVANA IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY MINDVALLEY

200 Education Hackers. 40 Nationalities. 1 Mission




Our Mission

Mindvalley is ambitiously determined to push humanity forward by empowering our audience to live healthier and happier lives so everyone can unleash their fullest human potential and be extraordinary. How? Nelson Mandela affirmed it through the most powerful tool of all – education.

We want to change education globally and provide innovative and holistic education for all levels – from infant learning and highschool models to all stages of adulthood. We currently do this by building successful app companies, health and fitness platforms, and online academies.

The 3 Major Education Gaps Which Hold Us All Back from Truly Fulfilling Lives

Be Extraordinary

Mindvalley creates, builds and publishes transformational personal growth tools, techniques and communities for the mobile generation. Extraordinary living is something we believe in for each and every one of us, and if we eliminate limiting beliefs that are hindering us from pursuing our dreams and adopt powerful mindsets, we can unleash the life that we are truly capable of living.




Our Philosophy

Instead of investing hours into fixing current education systems, we want to rebuild the lego from scratch and come up with new models that will ultimately render old rules that no longer serve us – obsolete. Which is why we stand by the philosophy of awesome scientist and futurist, Buckminster Fuller, who was famous for this truth:

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

And this is exactly how we approach our grand challenges – so that change is accelerated, cultures are hacked, education is holistic and extraordinary living becomes even more possible for everyone.


Our Culture

It’s really our unique company culture that makes Mindvalley one of the top private companies to work for today; it fuels our growth and accelerates our productivity.

As a business that also focuses on employee growth and hacking productivity by investing in company culture and office design, its inspired our team to be creative, productive, innovative, and most importantly – feel really valued as employees.

We’ve won numerous accolades for this, including WorldBlu’s Most Democratic Workplace (from 2008-2015) and a certification by Great Place to Work®. We are also a featured organization on GameChangers 500.

Our secret? Focusing on happiness, growth, abundance and cultivating our mutual mission for positive impact. Founder, Vishen Lakhiani explains the science of hacking and transforming work culture in his keynote at the 925 Festival of Work in Helsinki, Finland.

How else would we be able to manage 200 world-class employees from almost 40 different countries and backgrounds in one office? ;-)

Our Culture

Mindvalley works (and lives) by a Code of Awesomeness, which enlists the top 10 values we have collectively voted for – such as the importance of positive thinking, integrity, gratitude and taking responsibility for our words and actions. This is reflected in the decisions we make within our teams, our businesses, our partnerships, and when dealing with our customers.

As a global brand, our impact on humanity comes first on our list of priorities, followed by our customers and our employees. That’s why we’re always looking for high-impact ways to contribute and challenge the status quo – Mindvalley style.

As a business, our main drive for breaking revenue and profit records is being able to launch and execute even more ideas and new businesses that can meet our mission to touch a billion lives and empower people to be extraordinary through healthier, happier lifestyles.

What We Do



Media & Publishing

Mindvalley is a leading digital publisher of transformational education, fully dedicated to elevating human potential so that everyone can unleash their extraordinary by creating epic life skills from the world’s foremost experts and teachers in personal growth, entrepreneurship and more.

Mindvalley Academy, its successful flagship website and online university, publishes almost 200 authors to 300,000 students and 1 million subscribers worldwide since its launch in early 2013, marking an impressive 50% growth in revenue from its first year.

Mindvalley is also rapidly developing other digital wellbeing hubs under its wing, including Vibrantly, an online health and fitness centre, and Mindfully, an online gym for the mind that gathers the world’s best meditation and mindset experts.

With 20 businesses online in health, fitness, meditation and transformational educations – Mindvalley brands cater to five language groups across the globe – English, Russian, Italian and Spanish.


Technology

Designing and innovating on digital technology plays a critical role in our mission to create new education models. Mindvalley invests largely in building our own platforms to enhance the user experience and revolutionize digital learning.

Mindvalley Academy is our most successful experiment to date, having been dubbed the world’s first online university for transformational education. And soon, Vibrantly and Mindfully will be the next leading online gyms for hacking your body and achieving that powerful state of mind to unlock your epic life respectively.

In 2012 we launched Omvana, a meditation app that grew on to become the number one iPhone Health & Fitness App in 35 countries. This was followed by Dormio, an app dedicated to easing sleeping problems and enhancing your slumber with soothing tracks.

We also designed Elula, a brand new content consumption platform for desktop, mobile and tablet usage, designed to provide functional design and an intuitive user experience that values speed and simplicity but puts quality content front and centre.

In 2014, Mindvalley introduced a new steampunk-inspired office space to launch one of the hottest tech labs in Asia – we’re looking to give the best iOS, Android and Ruby developers in Asia an epic place to work.

Education

Advanced human learning through innovation in education is our main goal. Through Mindvalley we have also been focusing on conceptualizing education ideas and models that can redefine current standardized educational curriculums, where subjects and practices such as mindfulness and entrepreneurship are missing and crucial to the human development.

For instance, our peer to peer learning technology platform – Tribe Learn, allows collaborative learning and networking for people in new and emerging occupations where the rules of business change rapidly.

That’s why we constantly innovate on our businesses, communities and consumption platforms to make sure we only endorse authors, programs and products whose mission aligns with ours.

Mindvalley has mapped out twenty year vision to reform global education and we will be working with governments and private corporations to radically transform education for the next 100 years of human generation, covering every stage of life – from infant, kindgergarten and high school to university and adulthood.

If you’re interested to explore a partnership or collaboration with our mission to reform global education, contact us with a full proposal or details at media@mindvalley.com

We constantly work to improve our company culture and create meaningful work environments. Find out how hiring single mothers for our Costa Rican office put us on the Top 2% of companies worldwide for stellar customer service.


Social Responsibility

Mindvalley gives back through innovative means and causes to support our mission to give back to humanity and empower people to be extraordinary.

In 2013 we launched Project Renaissance, a long-term campaign to “hack” cities by curating communities around the key elements of entrepreneurship, starting with Kuala Lumpur. Our aim is to put the city on the map as one of the top 10 places in the world to incubate startups and cultivate innovative movements and events. Through Project Renaissance we host 20,000 Malaysians and guests annually at our Hall of Awesomeness.

Our bi-annual Awesomeness Fest is an invite-only transformational event that gathers change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world. Here attendees receive powerful training, profound mind shifts, bio-hacking techniques, deep connections and unique opportunities to multiply their impact.

We have donated a significant portion of our proceeds from Awesomeness Fest to causes and NGOs that include Shine on Sierra Leone, Pachamama Alliance, GiveLove and more recently – the X PRIZE Foundation.

Find out why we now donate $150,000 to X PRIZE Foundation every year.


Spirituality for the 21st Century

One in three Americans today identify with the phrase “Spiritual, but not religious”, on a quest for some connection with the divine… without the labels.

Yet for some, it isn’t about leaving past beliefs. Even within humanity’s oldest faiths lie arcane mystical elements that are long forgotten, cloaked behind the veil of dogma and modern society.

Soulvana brings the best teachers and practices for spirituality today, and merges them with our state-of-the-art digital platform, curating a learning experience to awaken, empower and inspire your soul, and reinforcing spirituality for all in the 21st century.

We’re creating that space and that movement to kickstart your path to your self-actualization. So you can serve your purpose, impact your community, nurture your physical and energetic health, create deep and meaningful relationships, achieve a higher level of consciousness and lead a life of purpose.


Meet the Team

Mindvalley runs a unique recruitment campaign – resulting in a team of 200 extraordinary players and bright minds from almost 40 different nations, all of whom celebrate and contribute to out company culture, and collectively work towards a mutual goal and purpose.

We stand for ideas, companies and products that push humanity forward and unleash the extraordinary in everyone, with the adamant belief that we can and will impact the world.
