Our unique approach to building community is fueled by producing engaging content with influential professionals. As the most successful career program to date at Columbia University [NYC], and designed in part with Harvard University, our strategy is the catalyst required to change each of our communities' narrative.

By adhering to a stringent selection process for those chosen to be a part of our community of influencers and podcast hosts, we know it's possible.

This is our formula...

The Face of Community & Business begins with each person's story. Through our podcast, we have the opportunity to share the stories of thousands of professionals from various background. Those that make it in our Top Influencers Guide represent the  most influential in their industries and communities.

The conversations we have on our lineup of shows from Business to Spirituality to Fitness, and everything in between, are the foundation of our community. True relationship begins with those who share similar passions. True change begins with meaningful dialogue between our communities' leaders. 

graphics - we give back


The idea of giving back back is not a secondary prerogative for us, it's a primary focus. We simply believe it's our purpose - and yours, too. That's why we host events in which the sole aim is to give back the people who  need it most. The best part is, you don't have to be featured to participate. 

graphics - we develop


We don't subscribe to the idea of work-life balance: There's only life. That's why our content and events are designed not only for our professional development, but also our mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and interpersonal development.

graphics - we connect


Our eclectic network of influencers means we're able to align ourselves with a wealth of community, experience and wisdom unlike ever before. We skip the small talk and connect with one another on a meaningful level to share with others.

Our mark as leaders in the community will be remembered by the youth we mentor and prepare today. That's why we  provide scholarships, to The Future of Community & Business, to students in our cities' most underserved neighborhoods.


We make it easy for our audience to connect with our hosts by providing them with content that creates a connection.

We dread forced networking, which is why we've created a gourmand series that brings our influencers together. They're elegant, yet provide a comfortable atmosphere for true connection. We're the most diverse and exclusive community anywhere. 

Our Influencer House, Studio Madison, has  1,700 square feet of event and studio space. We can accommodate up to 50 guests. Equipped with full service kitchen, private studios and state of the art audio + visual technology, it's the starting point for all things community. 


Unprecedented times call for unprecedented measures, but now more than ever our community needs leaders and influencers to emerge and their collective voices be heard. We are committed to doing our part, in the safest, most health conscious way possible to ensure we stay the course.
