We launched our curated seven-day travel and learning experience, known today as the Chōsen program, in 2013. The program was devised with a firm belief that travel is one of the most enriching learning experiences possible. We saw the need for a thoughtful, well-researched approach to travelling, with the added goal that on returning to their normal lives, travelers should be improved, more-fulfilled, and healthier people.

Each seven-day Chōsen experience has been designed to be an ideal week in your life, and represents our commitment to a lifestyle designed for balance. We believe in continuous learning and the optimization of an inspired life through fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, and connecting with like-minded people. We aim to share this philosophy with those around us.

Outside of Chōsen, we also run a venture capital company that aims to replace dirty industries with clean technologies in the developing world. This is another passion, and meeting its demanding goals is made possible by the Chōsen lifestyle.
