What the Hell is The Baby Bathwater Institute?

GOOD TIMES GONE GREAT

“We didn’t invent the Grateful Dead, the crowd invented the Grateful Dead. We were just in line to see what was going to happen.” – Jerry Garcia

The Baby Bathwater Institute began back in 2013 with one unforgettable party…and not a single business plan in sight. Because it was never our goal to create a real company out of this…

Then, as they do, plans changed.

When we first started we were just an events company for entrepreneurs.

Then we were an events company with a very small membership community in the background.

Now we are a very selective membership community with events…

Knowing there will always be “baby” and always be “bathwater”, no matter what we do…We attempt to minimize the “bathwater”, and maximize the “baby” to the best of our abilities.

But The Baby Bathwater Institute ain’t for everyone.

We’re looking for folks who are growing & scaling REAL companies. Doers, who actually care about their customers and their business, know their sh*t, and most importantly… are kind, sharing humans.

If you’re accepted, you’ll be among some of the nicest, highly skilled entrepreneurs you’ve ever met.

We believe meals are best enjoyed outdoors & with friends.

What to expect from a baby bathwater event

As you might have heard, getting into our community starts with an event.

And at our events, it all boils down to people, set, and setting.

What really makes this event different

The curation is real, the community is inviting, and the attention to detail is unmatched

All attendees are pre-vetted via an interview with the founders.

We look for how you can enhance the experience through both your skills AND personality.

If you’re accepted, you’ll be among some of the nicest, highly skilled entrepreneurs you’ve ever met. Yes, kindness counts.

We spend hours on the phone interviewing every single qualified applicant to make sure that the moment you step into our event, you’re going to dive into the best conversations of your life.

Come out of costume, eager to give, and you’ll fit right in.
Down to earth + great listeners = great conversations.

From well-known founder-driven brands, to ecommerce store founders, to highly skilled boutique B2B firm founders, to neuroscientists, to philanthropists, the gang’s all here.

You’ll meet trailblazing thinkers and doers. The most important thing? You’ll be among true givers who are excited to share and learn.

If you’re kind, love to learn from interesting folks, and want to expand your connections and grow your business… then this might be the place for you.

Yeah, it's a weird name...

Baby Bathwater is a collective of entrepreneurs, founders, thinkers, pioneers, and good-hearted, open-minded humans.

We’re passionate people with a penchant for straight talk and screwball adventures. We’re here to throttle the nectar out of this life — because otherwise, what’s the point?

It doesn’t matter how much money you make or how many followers you have. What matters is what lights you up from the inside. The reasons you do what you do. The beliefs and curiosities and goals that make you who you are.

More baby, less bathwater. That’s what we’re all about.
No quicker way to our hearts than good food, good drink, and good company.
You’ve gotta do more than dip your toe in…

The founders

The founders of the Baby Bathwater Institute are deliberately in the background. We don’t bug you with speeches, etc. It’s not about us. We just come to enjoy the experience WITH you, not AT you.

The founders are Hollis Carter and Michael Lovitch, two kooky serial entrepreneurs currently living in Boulder, Colorado who love that they don’t have to split their bar tabs anymore.
