Collaborate: Connect, Partner, Profit (Live Virtual)

Online event

There is strength in numbers and two heads are better than one... The biggest secret of business success that people don't seem to talk about is that successful entrepreneurs don't do it alone. The mythology of the loner genius transforming the world single-handedly is but a misguided fantasy that has, unfortunately, stopped many entrepreneurs from fulfilling their dreams and reaching their full world-changing potentials. What if Steve Jobs never met Steve Wozniak? COLLABORATE is a live virtual event born out of this need of helping entrepreneurs to find their ideal alliances so they can scale their business to the level that would be impossible to achieve if flying solo. Connect with hundreds of top entrepreneurs, coaches, authors, speakers, program leaders & producers of podcasts, radio shows and live & virtual events from around the world, who are all interested in creating alliances with you and promoting your products & programs. On top of that, you'll learn valuable, actionable knowledge & tools, and get the support you need to catapult your business into the next stratosphere. BACKGROUND: Created by the dynamic event team that also designed the annual (since 2013) live JV Experience (JVX) Summit, which has been called the world's #1 joint venture summit. Due to the pandemic, JVX went virtual in May. The May event became the pilot to COLLABORATE. 400 people from around the world attended the 3-day live virtual event that mirrors the live event, with lots of activities, exercises and games to hone your pitches and product offerings, plus tons of opportunities to connect among attendees from around the world. The result was a live virtual event that delivered beyond expectations and generated massive connections and joint venture partners among attendees. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT: • Networking Circles: Connect and form collaborative partnerships with industry leaders, experts & influencers from around the world. • Hot Or Not: Test your product or program by getting IMMEDIATE feedback from 100's of coaches & experts on the spot! • Niche Circles: Get feedback & hone your pitches & messages in front of small groups & live coaches • Knowledge Sessions: Learn valuable knowledge and actionable tools from guest speakers • JV Shark Attack: A chance to have your product or program promoted by key industry leaders • Special Exercises & Activities: Uniquely designed partners connecting & business building exercises, and other one-of-a-kind activities created to give your business a mega boost • And Much More: More sessions & activities are being developed even as you read More than ever before, successful entrepreneurs need to be able to weather unexpected storms by going beyond business as usual. COLLABORATE gives you the opportunity to establish global connections so your business can expand, grow, and get promoted beyond local economic conditions and physical boundaries.
