* Treehouse Lunches

Paying It Forward

In the summer of 2003 and 2004, the perfect treehouse took shape in a four-stem maple in the back yard of a house in Acton, MA. The treehouse was built by Erik J. Heels and his three children: Sam, Ben, and Sonja. Shown here in all four seasons: winter, spring, summer, fall.

Treehouse lunches are designed to bring cool people together so that they can forge more meaningful connections, reinforce a “pay-it-forward” culture, and discover unexpected opportunities.

The inspiration for the Treehouse lunches comes from Adam McGowan of Firefield and we have borrowed (with his permission) much of his format. Additional inspiration comes from the excellent book “Give and Take” by Adam Grant, the networking approach of Adam Rifkin, and the perfect treehouse (which itself is a good analogy for building startups).

Treehouse members possess a willingness to share their passion, experience, and attention for the benefit of others. This can take structured forms such as mentorship or volunteering or unstructured forms such as favors and referrals. Members are a unique and diverse collection of cool people including investors, founders, executives, advisors, experts, and, most importantly, givers.

Membership comes at no cost other than a willingness to forge new relationships and cast aside expectations of “quid pro quo“-style networking.

Lunches include 8-12 cool people from various backgrounds.
