Avanti Peer Advisory

Avanti Peer Advisory Board is a group for business owners who want to collaborate and learn from each other.  

The mission of this group is to provide a safe and confidential setting where business owners can present questions, challenges and/or opportunities. Members receive objective feedback and experience sharing that helps everyone participating in the group move forward.  

How It Works:

Once a month, we meet at a local restaurant or business. Members start the hour with collaborating and hors devours and then move on to a format of learning from each other.  

Between meetings, members are encouraged to continue their conversations. One way to do this is through the Avanti Peer Advisory Board closed Facebook group.  

What Does It Cost?

Many groups similar to the Avanti Peer Advisory Board can cost anywhere from $5,000 - $15,000 or more each year. Not Avanti Peer Advisory Board! Our goal is to provide a learning and collaborating environment for small and middle-stage entrepreneurs and leaders in their industries. 

However, this group is not free because we are looking for committed and engaged members. If you pay for something, you’re more likely to be engage. (Plus, it helps to pay for the food at the meetings — which everyone loves! Please note that drinks are not included but we’ll provide a cash bar when appropriate.)  


Investment: $500 per year
