The Social Entrepreneurship & Innovation Podcast

May 21, 2019

Thomas Querton is the co-founder and CEO of atlasGO, a company that allows sweaty change makers to use fitness to raise funds and awareness for causes they care about. With over 1 million kilometers and $600,000 raised since its launch in 2017, it’s fair to say atlasGO is off to a running start, amiright?

Thomas himself is social entrepreneur from Belgium who relocated to San Francisco three and a half years ago to embark on the atlasGO adventure. AltasGO’s rapid progress has given Thomas valuable insight into finding a healthy balance in his personality and within the company.

In our episode, Thomas talks about the balance between pushing further for continued growth, while also taking a moment to enjoy achievements. He shares his experience developing his own measurement for success despite external pressures and we discussed the benefits of mentorships.

A few takeaways from our conversation:

  • The importance of defining your own measurements for success and how that plays into the continued development of atlasGO
  • How altasGO cultivates a healthy and fun work environment and the strengths of working on a team
  • How to seek out mentors, what steps to take in creating those relationships, and how mentorships have helped Thomas in his growth with atlasGO
