Are you an impact-driven young entrepreneur under 30? If so, this is for you.

And if you are remotely interested in leveling up your business, then this would be one of the most (if not the most!) IMPORTANT messages you will read in 2023!

Here's why:

Maybe you're suffering from stress and burnout, tight deadlines are taking a toll on your physical and mental health, or your are struggling with feelings of loneliness as you don't have a community around you that can understand your struggles and your life as an entrepreneur.

Or you're trying to manage the finances of a growing business while raising funding, deciding when and how to find "A+" talent, or fighting intense competition to attract and retain your ideal customer while navigating complex legal and regulatory requirements.

If these problems remain unaddressed, you may have a rising fear inside that you won't achieve the goals you had initially set out to accomplish.

Who would be the best people to help you navigate these challenges?

The answer is easy; the people who have already navigated and solved your problems, and can help you do it too (now and anytime they arise in the future).

What’s more, imagine if these kind of invaluable mentors are excellent role models as they have achieved great impact and success in their industry, while feeling aligned, happy and fulfilled in their personal lives.

How The Award Changes Lives...

"What sets Maverick apart is definitely its focus on not only success but also impact, happiness, health, and peace while building a company. This isn't just about being successful; it's about participating in entrepreneurship in a balanced, fulfilling way.

The unique composition of the mastermind, with everyone being highly successful and around the same age, plays a crucial role in creating strong connections. I think this shared experience and understanding are some of the reasons we've been able to create such strong bonds, bonds that I see lasting a lifetime.

Being a part of this mastermind has given me everything I could ask for, and more. The selection for the mastermind is extremely tight, ensuring that everyone involved is not just successful, but also insightful, inspiring, and enjoyable to be around. This vibrant group of young, impact-driven entrepreneurs has provided not only an opportunity for professional growth but also personal development and lifelong friendships."

Jester Schilder,
Serial entrepreneur who has helped charities and non-profit organizations raise hundreds of millions in funding and sponsorships

"My first meeting with the community was with Richard Branson and all these industry leaders from whom I drew immense inspiration and they taught me so much. Here, it's not just talk, it's action; we do stuff, we get things done. For instance, when I expressed my desire to write a book, they didn't just nod in approval, but the very next week they helped me set up meetings with several New York Times bestselling authors.

What's astounding is the realization of how much further we can propel ourselves when we're surrounded by like-minded individuals who have either achieved great things or are fervently aspiring to do so. Being part of this community has bestowed upon me a wealth of experiences and opportunities, for which I'm profoundly grateful."

Vilde Regine Tellnes Solheim,
Founder Of HEATLHY EATS, Top 10 Sustainability Leader In Norway

"Joining Maverick NEXT has been probably the best decision of my life in terms of my entrepreneurial growth, and just surrounding myself with other very successful entrepreneurs. The mentoring and advice I've gotten from entrepreneurs in the Maverick network has been worth far more than my four years at Wharton Business school.

A turning point occurred after speaking with several Maverick entrepreneurs who were very, very successful. Surprisingly, all of them told me to do exactly the opposite of what I was planning. That realization hit me, making me aware that doing something else, following their advice, was the right thing to do. A pivotal moment happened during a NEXT hot seat, where I got an idea of a completely different offer for my business.

That new offer has since taken off, completely blowing my mind in terms of how much opportunity there was in that market. We’ve seen more than a 10x growth in our existing business off the back of that one insight alone."
