Rhodium Weekend is all about bringing like-minded entrepreneurs together to learn, network and do deals.

In 2012 we, Chris Yates and David Gass, set out to create an event to teach people all about buying, selling and investing in online businesses. We didn’t anticipate what would happen. While everyone loved the content, people raved about the quality of connections they were making. The most profound impact that occurred was simply from bringing together like-minded entrepreneurs in an intimate setting and facilitating the exchange of knowledge.

$4,509,000+ in Deals…How Does That Happen?

By putting people who own successful online businesses (many open to selling) face-to-face in a room with people interested in buying their next online business, amazing deals started to happen. Over $4,509,000 worth of online businesses were either bought, sold, or received funding. Simply from connections made at Rhodium Weekend. However, this event is about so much more than deals… Deals are really a by-product or simply a way to measure the event’s ability to bring isolated entrepreneurs into a community of peers where they can belong. It’s about building relationships with like-minded entrepreneurs who are building their own success. It’s about making life-long friends in business and surrounding yourself with a mastermind group who will help you to achieve your goals to live life on your terms. You don’t want to miss the opportunity to participate in the behind-the-scenes knowledge sharing and deals that will happen this year.

  • Find out what’s working now in buying, monetizing, scaling and selling online businesses.
  • Learn the latest trends, strategies, and tactics from industry experts and in-the-trenches entrepreneurs.
  • Network and brainstorm ideas to scale your online business you might never have thought of on your own.

To ensure everyone gets face time with everyone else, this event is limited in size and is on an invite-only basis.
