Who We Are

“To be in good moral condition requires at least as much training as to be in good physical condition.” — Jawaharlal Nehru

We are heroism trainers.

Heroism is a choice. It can be trained. We provide a road map that helps with the bumps along the hero’s path.

Who is behind the Hero Construction Company?

Matt Langdon is the founder of The Hero Construction Company. He has been working with the idea of heroes to create positive change in kids and adults alike since 2006. An early partnership  was forged with one of the most well known names in psychology, Dr. Phil Zimbardo – Professor Emeritus at Stanford University. Zimbardo had this to say of the Hero Construction Company:

I have been working closely and personally with Matt from the first time I discovered this educational gem, and we plan to collaborate to build it out by combining it with my Heroic Imagination Project. We want to go national on the way to reaching out to youth and adults globally.

In 2015, the Hero Construction Company went from a small one-man organization to a 501(c)3 (application pending) nonprofit that aims to bring the lessons of the first 8 years to the world.
