A few years back, I had the pleasure of meeting Victor Oviedo, one of the co-founders of the SCALE Global Summit. During our conversation, he shared an innovative idea that he, Kelly O’Connor, the CEO of SCALE Global, and Tony Hsieh had been working on. This idea aimed to create a community where people from diverse backgrounds could unite and foster growth in their personal and professional lives.
Their vision was to create a conference that would foster connections and provide the necessary resources and support for individuals to thrive. In this community, attendees could learn from industry experts, exchange ideas, and gain insights to fuel their growth.
Why today, I wanted to share some exciting news with you.
Here is something that, as CEO and leader, you should consider attending. The upcoming SCALE Global Summit brings together some incredible speakers who will provide invaluable insights into the current economic landscape and what lies ahead. SCALE is a global ecosystem that brings together investors, thought leaders, and business-builders to discuss the macroeconomic conditions, geopolitical trends, and investment opportunities for the year ahead.
This community fosters collaboration, connectivity, and capital within the alternative investing and entrepreneurial ecosystems. The connections that you will foster are unlike any other event. My good friend Tony Hsieh used to say this is where the top and elite investors let their hair down.
One thing I love about SCALE is that you’ll sit amongst your peers, including market-moving CEOs, investment icons, and industry luminaries, who are transforming today’s ideas into the innovations and investments of tomorrow. You’ll engage in conversations with solution-orientated, intellectually-curious, and purpose-driven game-changers coming together to address critical issues.
The platform at SCALE is designed to inspire learning and innovation, catalyze growth and opportunity, access meaningful sources of deal flow and capital, and network with the world’s brightest minds. You’ll have access to a community of like-minded individuals who are all working towards the same goal: building their capital – financial, strategic, social, and human.
SCALE is more than just a gathering; it’s a movement that promotes the democratization of access, ideas, and opportunities. It’s about breaking down barriers and creating a level playing field where anyone can succeed. By joining this community, you’ll be able to scale your business to new heights while positively impacting society.
SCALE is the perfect platform for CEOs and leaders looking to take their businesses to the next level. It’s a global ecosystem that provides access to capital, innovation, and purpose while fostering collaboration, connectivity, and community. So, if you’re ready to join a movement that promotes growth, opportunity, and positive change, then SCALE is the place for you.
