Maverick1000 is an invitation only, global network of industry transforming entrepreneurs connecting in bold new ways to challenge and collectively support each other’s biggest business goals, engage in reinvigorating experiences and co-create a worldwide multiplier impact.
Members meet periodically throughout the year to connect in bold, new ways to challenge and collectively support each other’s biggest business goals and personal growth, engage in exclusive experiences, and co-create a significant, worldwide multiplier impact (to date raising over $3 million+). We’re here to change what’s possible for businesses around the world.
Together we are able to catalyze resources, capital, and mentorship to use entrepreneurial thinking and business as the ultimate lever to make a difference.
To date, we’ve raised over $3,000,000+ in charitable contributions…but even more powerful is contributing our brainpower, resources, and network to exponentially increase our total impact.
We’ve previously worked on big issues like developing self-sustaining economic engines for villages we’ve built in Haiti, helping to develop educational programs for protecting the headwaters of the Amazon, and aiding returning vets with entrepreneurial opportunities as well as global issues such as the declining bee population, the recent refugee crisis, and many more.
