From the founders of the acclaimed Summit event series and community comes the story of their unconventional journey to business success and the hard lessons they learned along the way.
In Make No Small Plans, they reveal the triumphs, mistakes, and cornerstone lessons from their journey, which began during The Great Recession and continues through today. Alongside teachings from some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs of our time, the authors offer takeaways such as:
Praise for Summit & Make no Small Plans
“Making big dreams come true starts with learning the principles of those who did it before you. If you want to succeed as an entrepreneur, Make No Small Plans shows how the Summit team did it.”
"So my tribe! In the future, gaia beautiful, historians will trace lines to the Summit community"
“I love spending time in a beautiful place with my family and friends and I enjoy meeting and collaborating with like-minded entrepreneurs. At Summit, I can do both."
"I had a great time at Summit. The people and conversation that took place there were inspiring."
"The Summit Series community provided a step change function for so many in a pivotal point in their lives. An incredible amount of value can be attributed to the relationships that were built because this team decided to bring extraordinary people together and make no small plans."
“Summit provides a unique opportunity for thought leaders from all sectors to come together and exchange ideas to innovate and solve pressing global challenges."
"Summit is a community of founders and innovators who inspire one another to go beyond just building great companies, but to build and scale companies with greater purpose."
"It's easy to get stuck in a bubble. Business people stick with business people. Tech people with tech people. But at Summit, you're as likely to have lunch with an architect or surgeon or hip-hop artist as you are with someone doing what you do."
