1 Maverick Entrepreneur Can Change An Industry...
1,000 Together Can Change The World
(Are you one of them?)
Maverick 1000 is an invitation only, global network of exceptional entrepreneurs and business leaders who redefine how business is played in the 21st century at the intersection of more profits, more fun,
and more impact.
They believe their future is bigger than their past (regardless of what they’ve already achieved).
Maverick1000 was created to intentionally give you the push and support essential to accomplish
something that truly matters.
You can tap into other like-minded peers who really get where you’re going and where you’ve come from. The right group of kindred spirits who are eager to celebrate your wins, challenge you to greater
accomplishments, share breakthrough ideas and re-invigorate you during the natural emotional roller coaster of breaking new ground.
Members meet periodically throughout the year to connect in bold new ways to challenge and collectively support each other’s biggest business goals, engage in exclusive experiences and co-create a significant, worldwide multiplier impact.
Why The 1000?
The big idea is to light 1,000 ‘Suns’ who can each ignite another 1,000 suns.
To us, a sun is a universe creator and responsible for life everywhere. Maverick1000 members are the visionary leaders and exceptional entrepreneurs with the significant reach, influence, voices and capabilities to do just that….create universes.
We're Looking for 3 Categories of Members
- You already have a big voice, reach or influence in the entrepreneurial community OR...
- You are a world-class expert OR...
- You are an industry leader who wants to become a lighthouse back to your industry or even transcend your current business category
3X Multiplier Retreats
The 3X Multiplier Retreats also give you a scheduled refuge from your usual day-to-day and will become something to look forward to throughout the year.
There’s no doubt the synchronicities from putting together some of the brightest minds in different and unusual experiences will develop new resources, capabilities and connections you didn’t even know about.
Upcoming 3X Retreats
Next Featured 3X Multiplier Retreat:
May 18-20, 2017
San Francisco, CA
For our Growth conversations in San Francisco, we have a diverse group of invited guests and thought leaders, including Silicon Valley insiders, digital pioneers, and brand builders. Here are just a few of those that are coming:
Tina Sharkey is a top Silicon Valley insider, twice named as one of the “Most Influential Women in Technology” by Fast Company, and is part of Business Insider’s list of the Top 50 angel investors.
Tina was an early co-founder of the online women’s community iVillage, which was acquired for $600 million in 2006. She is part of venture capital firm Sherpa Capital and has now partnered with entrepreneur Ido Leffler to found Brandless, “the next Procter and Gamble for millennials.”
Kara Goldin, Hint Water founder, has built a $90 million beverage company that evolved from the simple problem of her family drinking too much sugar.
From being a former AOL tech executive and knowing nothing about consumer goods or a non-digital product, now sales are exploding with double-digit growth year over year.
Lisa Stone co-founded BlogHer in 2005 with an idea for a grassroots conference to a leading cross-platform media company created with women reaching 100 million unique visitors monthly.
BlogHer pioneered the largest U.S. events for women who blog and use social media. Lisa will be covering what it takes to build a predictable audience of millions of interested and engaged readers.
Next Featured 3X Multiplier Retreat:
October 19-21, 2017
Special guest Joe DeSena, founder of Spartan Race.
Spartan is the country’s foremost obstacle-course racing operation. Forget Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, and all the rest, Spartan is the most grueling out there. Mavericks will participate in a unique Spartan experience at Joe’s private farm in Pittsfield, VT, population 546. Previous Spartan participants have crawled under barbed wire, leaped over fire pits, chucked spears and slogged for miles rocks. There is no set agenda yet but one thing for sure is this experience will surely change you.
Here’s what you can expect at an upcoming
GROWTH MULTIPLIER – workshop experience with unique
conversations and discussions with Maverick members, business icons and thought leaders.
Get invaluable feedback on your biggest opportunities or new business ideas from your peers. Plus, receive invaluable content and resources you need to become a better leader, build a more engaged culture and significantly add to your bottom line. You can’t help but experience growth and a direct ROI from the shared insights here. Right now Maverick members represent leaders in over 91+ different marketplaces and industries.
Growth sessions are a mix of informal conversations, topic-focused panels, big-idea presentations and roundtable discussions. And that’s not even counting the powerful relationships and meaningful connections that happen outside the room. It’s truly anything but business as usual.
Impact Multiplier – We’re out to ‘change the way business is played’… and this day is about making a measurable difference with our collective entrepreneurial brainpower and resources by working with cause partners and/or new mission-driven startups.
We’ve previously worked on big issues like developing self-sustaining economic engines for villages we built in Haiti, helping develop educational programs for protecting the headwaters of the Amazon, aiding returning vets with entrepreneurial opportunities, global issues such as the declining bee population, the recent refugee crisis and many more.
In fact, each year, Mavericks are part of high level brainstorming meetings and discussions with Sir Richard Branson on his private island for his charity foundation, Virgin Unite.
To date, we’ve raised over $3,000,000+ in charitable contributions… but even more powerful is contributing our brainpower and other unique resources which exponentially increases our total impact.
"The Mavericks are the Green Berets of Business &
Entrepreneurship… And this is exactly what drew the Green Beret foundation to reach out. Their unconventional approach, and ability to embrace complex situations make them the

Experience Multiplier – Mavericks get to partake in unique adventures, excursions or experiences to help re-energize and rejuvenate. Make sure you’re up for little bit of Maverick mayhem.
What has this day looked like at past events? How about flying water jet packs or speeding around a track in a racecar? Exhilarating skydiving, roller derby and daredevil circus training? Or sometimes the experience celebrates your more creative side like painting, graffiti work or spoken word poetry with world-famous artists.
We like to keep things a surprise but you might want to look up one of the definitions of ‘Maverick’ for a little preview.
“Schedule the fun stuff first because if you’re a type A drive personality…and if you don’t pre-book and pre-pay and pre-commit to other people – then work will fill the void that remains…” – Tim Ferriss
(It’s actually a member lead organization where the members
make the decision of who joins.)
Important note: There are typically 50-60 Maverick members at each 3X Retreat so in order to keep the ratio of members to guests intentionally small, there are only a small number of open guest slots.
After submitting the application you can expect to hear from us within 48-72 hours to contact you for a potential
follow-up interview. The members of Maverick1000 are selected by an independent group of members. Positions are available for a distinguished group of high-caliber entrepreneurs, business owners and CEOs selected for their business achievements, contributions, skills, and resources.
