Mads Misiak Friis

I am a happy camper who tries to live life to the fullest. I have always been interested in personal growth and high performance. From playing different sports at a high-level from a younger age to discovering books by the Dalai Lama to Anthony Robbins. The journey led to me completing different studies and degrees in Psychology at Copenhagen Business School and Harvard University. In my research, I have found that many of the resources focus 80% on the problems we are facing and only 20% on the solutions. I want to flip this statistic around. 

One of my biggest passions is building health, performance and wellbeing related ventures and projects. Also, exploring what helps individuals feel extraordinary - perform better, live a more meaningful life, and be happy. 

Speaking of my professional journey, I have gone through a rollercoaster of scaling and closing a company myself. Then, I co-built 3 new impact-driven ventures with KRING where one of them reached a solid turnover in a few months and the second one, an AI-driven mental health app, collected 2.000 users after its launch. A few years ago I started Growth Island, a podcast on health and human wellbeing. To this day, I interviewed +60 experts from around the World  - doctors, scientists, psychologists, and entrepreneurs. 

My curiosity, velocity in learning new things, and generous interest in human wellbeing is my biggest motivation to pursue this journey with you.
