Like the Sequoia, entrepreneurs in a community of peers grow quicker and push themselves beyond those that insist on going it alone.
This is a group of entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. It's for those who rise to a challenge and fearlessly explore growth in all its forms.
You get out what you put in.
We primarily meet virtually, and while there is no requirement for attending cohort meetings, there is a requirement to participate. Active participation by all members creates a rich community, and we actively remove those who aren't bringing it to the table.
We meet several times during the month, either on 90-minute bi-weekly cohort meetings, monthly networking, or presentations. Our interactions are almost entirely by Zoom; however, there are a few gatherings in-person.
Membership is Different
Membership determination is by the community or referral from one of our existing members.
With very few exceptions we're looking for entrepreneurs with multiple years of experience.
To apply, either start a discussion with us in WhatsApp or reach out to one of our members listed below by hitting them up however you see fit. Remember, the existing members will have final say on your application to join.
Below is the current membership roster as of Summer of '22.

This is about making an investment in yourself.
So often us business owners are too busy doing. We are always kicking the ball down the road for things which don't feel urgent or necessary.
Taking the time to invest in yourself, is investing in your business. Learning from other entrepreneurs helps us avoid potential mistakes, or better yet it helps us make moves that accelerate our businesses.
For the global challenges that face us, we need entrepreneurs that are more adaptable and value driven than ever.
It's no longer all "about the Benjamins," it's about creating real change, improving communities and better the lives of all.
Join us in this mission to grow as entrepreneurs and build a better World for future generations to thrive.
