Off World Enterprise is a marketing firm to support entrepreneurs. I've found a lot of people have varying impressions of the word, ranging from tech giant to unemployed wannabe. The word in fact comes from the French word for "undertake," and signifies a person undertaking a particular enterprise and assuming significant risk to do so. My definition of entrepreneur is "Brave as hell."
Entrepreneurs aren't just business owners - they are filmmakers, designers, politicians, community organizers, engineers, investors, philanthropists and more. An entrepreneur is anyone willing to put the work and risk in to bring their ideas for a better world to life. To me, there is no greater purpose on Earth, and it is my honor to work with so many entrepreneurs and see their Visions become Reality.
I am often asked how Off World Enterprise got its name. It's a reference to the film Blade Runner, in which a blimp advertises a new life to the people left in a dystopian Los Angeles long after the world has been ravaged by nuclear war (interestingly enough, the film is set in 2019). The advertisement announces:
"A new life awaits you in the Off World Colonies. The chance to begin again in a golden land of opportunity and adventure."
Off World Enterprise was born out of creating new lives, new opportunities and new adventures. "Off World" signifies a place that isn't here - it's a place unbound by status quo, a place where ideas reign, a place constantly seeking the next level of service and achievement. A place where entrepreneurship thrives.
So let's go "Off World" and find new opportunity and adventure. I can't wait to see you there.
