What the Hell is The Baby Bathwater Institute?

Our story starts here

What happens when a couple of pseudo intellectual hacks attempt to create a worthwhile entrepreneurial community?

Knowing there will always be baby and always be bathwater, no matter what they do…

They attempt to minimize the bathwater, and maximize the baby to the best of their abilities. Welcome to the Baby Bathwater Experience.
We believe meals are best enjoyed outdoors & with friends.

What to expect from a baby bathwater event

Whether you attend our event in Cabo, Powder Mountain, Italy, or New Orleans, you will always experience these three things. It all boils down to people, set, and setting.

  • Entrepreneurs with skills and unique personalities who come “out of costume.” Folks who, no matter where they come from, bring a small town feel.
  • Outdoor vibe, unplugged from day to day, farm fresh healthy meals, outdoor activities, spa environments, live music with real instruments, and other fun party favors.
  • All inclusive, everything is provided. Rooms, food & beverage, etc.. there is nothing to do but get there, and nothing more to spend money on. And there is NEVER any pitching allowed.

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 know this because over the last five years, only about 20% of applicants have been accepted. And our policy is to only invite half the people back after each event.

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.

Big Thinkers, Boundary Pushers & Lovable Nutjobs to the Front

If you’re the right fit for Baby Bathwater, you’re smart, kind, humble, ambitious, and open to learning and trying new things.

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.
