Anthony Ware

Principal at AWare Catalysts

A latchkey kid from Indianapolis. He and his two younger brothers were raised by his dad. Anthony’s first job was cleaning toilets for his dad’s janitorial business. After going the traditional route of getting a degree and a job, he jumped from the corporate ladder to launch multiple startups. Ignoring his scarcity mentality and trauma from childhood, he broke down mentally in November 2010 after his third startup failed. It was a pivotal moment in his life that shaped the focus on his business and life mission. As a result, he now focuses his business and research on the mental wealth of the global community of underestimated entrepreneurs and business professionals.
