About us


After attending numerous start-up summits and conferences for entrepreneurs, though we walked away with valuable information they did not provide exactly what we needed to make a difference to our businesses. A growing company requires true access to information, investors, partners and resources in an intimate, relaxed and fun setting that can make a real difference to their business. We didn’t see it in the marketplace so WE CREATED IT.

Our T.H.R.I.V.E. Manifesto and Core Values

Our Mission

``Our Mission is to help Mission-Driven Entrepreneurs get the Knowledge, Resources and Partnerships to go from Surviving to Thriving.``

Survive and Thrive Today Retreat and Startup Venture Fund


Founded in 2017 with a successful launch and strong brand identity, Survive and Thrive Today is a bootcamp type conference for mission-driven entrepreneurs who want to take action to move their companies from surviving to thriving, while impacting the community and creating change. Different from other conferences, we encourage entrepreneurs to replace their sports jackets and shoes with a fleece and sneakers for a weekend of work, integration, inspiration, connections, and adventure.


Survive and Thrive Today brings together successful business leaders, accredited investors, proven mentors and global entrepreneurs and students, who are we believe will be future leaders. Our goal is to elevate their game for peak success. These entrepreneurs have survived the startup phase and now need real access and real information to make a difference to their businesses and community.
