Great ideas should be shared.

On June 7th in NYC 60 entrepreneurs will share their best business boosting ideas.









40 Entrepreneurs. 8 hours. Unbelievable Breakthroughs.

Led by serial entrepreneur, author, and keynote speaker
Peter Shankman.

If you’re a busy entrepreneur trying to grow a business, the last thing you need to waste time on is another awful “networking conference.”

You know the one:

— The one where you sit through insufferable, arrogant, speakers who are supposed to be teaching you but all they’re really doing is making you feel like there’s no way you can ever achieve that level of success.

— The one where the attendees are even more boring than you could’ve imagined, and you struggle to find interesting things to talk about with the people you’re stuck sitting next to.

— The one where you suffer through bad food, even worse coffee, no wifi, and at the end of the day you realise you would’ve been better off taking your laptop down to Starbucks.

And as if that wasn’t bad enough: you pay a lot of money “for the experience,” you take time off from real business building activities, and you don’t actually learn anything worth implementing.

You get home with a handful of notes that get shelved and never looked at again.

Talk about a waste of time.

If you’ve been an entrepreneur for a while, you’ve probably been to an event just like that: an event that wastes your time and never moves you forward.

And if you’re anything like me, you don’t have any time to waste while you’re building your empire.

I’m Peter Shankman, serial entrepreneur, keynote speaker, and best selling author.

You may know me best as the founder of Help a Reporter Out.

I’ve been to a lot of business conferences over the last 20 years, and I know what a waste of time they can be.

— You have to take a whole day off from working on growing your business.

— You are talked at (not to) by arrogant speakers who don’t get what you’re going through.

— You leave with a few ideas, but nothing you’re ever going to implement because none of the advice was actionable.

I knew it was time for a different kind of business event.

I knew it was time for a live mastermind that leaves you brimming with ideas and implementation strategies.

A mastermind that leaves you feeling empowered, not overwhelmed.

A mastermind that helps you boost your revenue while growing your network.

I hope you’ll be one of the 40 entrepreneurs to join us, and walk away with a business breakthrough.

Intentional action leads to big results.

This is a day-long, in-person conference and mastermind and specifically focused on growing your business, increasing your revenue, and helping you get the breakthrough you’re craving.

— You’ll learn actionable strategies you can implement to get real results in your business.

— You’ll learn how to take intentional, focused action that moves you forward.

— You’ll soak up years of business knowledge from 59 other entrepreneurs.

June 7th: ShankMinds NYC

About The Venue

We will be hosting ShankMinds NYC at MEET on Bowery, situated atop a historic building in the Bowery neighborhood of New York City.

MEET has one focus: produce full-service, successful meetings in unique and inspiring spaces. MEET revolutionized how companies gather for strategy and brainstorming sessions, focus groups, product launches, and pitch meetings, making them the perfect venue for ShankMinds NYC.

Fully engineered for creative thought to flourish, MEET combines professional service, technology and evocative design to build an experience un-imagined by other offsite spaces.

MEET believes the design and feeling of a space contribute to a seamless meeting. The environment you are in affects your attitude, creativity, and energy levels.

We will be gathering at MEET to re-invent our businesses, fueled and nurtured by their modern, and creative environment.

“As a 9-5er, I was worried that I would be a ship astray at the Shankminds Mastermind event in December, but attended anyway. I was so inspired by the energy in the room, that I’ve spent the time since then really honing my idea on how to convert my passion into an eventual income-generating venture. The amount of smarts in one room, and the speakers that Peter brought in, was phenomenal. I feel so much more connected to my fellow Shankminds members and know that even as a bit of an outlier I have a tribe to call on. It was worth every single penny and much, much more.”

— Heather Gaynor

“I attended two Shankminds NYC conferences. One in August and one in December. When I say it changed my life, it changed my life and saved my career. Peter prepared me for success as I was let go from my job (after 12 years) a month later. He gave me the tools that I needed for success and for entrepreneurship life. I hustled for months heads down to make ends meet and took what he gave me. I landed my dream job of March 2017. Yes that dream job you always wanted? That one. Peter is not only a friend, a mentor, but also the person who will push you to your max and squeeze the smarts out of you!”

— Craig Caruso

“Building key relationships and networks are vital to an entrepreneurs success, Peter gives you all of this in one room. PLUS you will have the opportunity to engage with a group of brilliant minds that can help you see things more clearly and create an immediate action plan to move forward towards achieving your goals.”

— Julie Morse Pankey

“After only two Shankminds mastermind events…
they are a Must Do for me, no matter what mountains need to be moved, schedules rearranged, math homework done with child via Snapchat. The energy and spirit are palpable. You walk away just basked in Can Do. Will Do.”

— Tara Zimnick-Calico

“The Shankminds mastermind events have become “must attends” for me, because of the unique combination of great content and amazing, high-caliber entrepreneurs who attend. The things I’ve learned and the people I’ve met at Shankminds have had a significant impact on my business. Just get there!”

— Lou Bortone

“My second Shankminds NYC experience blew me out of the water. I loved the speakers and how accessible they were – no waiting for someone to maybe come off the stage. The day was fantastic from the simple – atmosphere, location and food – to the wildly inspiring – brainstorming with my badass mastermind group, meeting my FB friends in person, going for karaoke after. Sing karaoke with business colleagues and become friends for life.”

— Catherine Avery

“The Shankminds NYC was the first in person mastermind I have ever attended, and I was blown away by the combination of inspiration and specific ||move my business forward|| action items I left with. The breakout teams were so high level in their experience, expertise and warmth I felt like I was with family as we problem solved on a visionary level. These are ||Never Miss|| for me going forward.”

— Pamela Palladino Gold
