MAVERICK ENTREPRENEURS COMING TOGETHER TO EXPERIENCE LA DOLCE VITA

2022 M3 SUMMIT: LA DOLCE VITA

La Dolce Vita. The literal translation of this common Italian phrase is "the sweet life." It may sound cliche, but in Italy it’s not just a saying, it’s a lifestyle. It’s knowing that life is a collection of moments in time, each of which should be cherished. It’s knowing that spending time with those we love is truly what matters most. Whether that is eating, drinking, laughing, or "la passeggiata" — the long, leisurely strolls every evening before dinners, La Dolce Vita is knowing that life is meant to be savored and lived with love.

Growth

The Italian people are known for the passion and zest for life. Their lifestyle is typically considered to be laid back and relaxed with a good ‘work/life balance.’ There is an inherent understanding that we are here for more than just ‘doing,’ but also for the being and the simple enjoyment of what is.

As Maverick entrepreneurs, we want to prioritize connection, purpose, passion and play…in our businesses and beyond. During our time together, we will explore and experience “La Dolce Vita” and explore how we can take a lesson from the Italian culture (and maybe cookbooks) and incorporate some of their ways of being into our lives.

IMPACT

10% of all Maverick1000 membership dues go into the One Thousand Suns Project, our 501(c) which is then used to co-create a significant ripple effect for our Cause Partners.

To date, we’ve raised over $3,000,000+ in charitable contributions, but we believe that even more powerful is the collective brain power, network, and entrepreneurial resources contributed. These are what exponentially increase the impact we create for cause partners and the mission-driven startups we work with throughout the year!

At this year's summit, one of our Cause Partners will be the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, a non-profit entity created to empower people and communities in situations of poverty, illiteracy and distress due to illness and social exclusion.

An Evening with Andrea Bocelli

Andrea Bocelli is lovingly referred to as the world’s most beloved tenor. In addition to his success as an artist, Andrea is well respected and loved for all of the incredible work that he and his family do through their foundation.

On July 28th, we will be joining Andrea and his family in their hometown of Latajico for a concert at the Teatro di Silenzio, which translates to the ‘Theater of Silence.” In 2006, Bocelli convinced the municipality of Lajatico to build this outdoor amphitheater whose structure utilizes the natural formations of the hilly landscape. Bocelli contributed greatly to its construction and the venue is only open and used once a year - for Bocelli’s performance.

After the show, you will have the opportunity to join Andrea, his family, friends and other supporters of ABF at their home for a private dinner event benefiting the Andrea Bocelli Foundation. (This post-concert dinner experience will be an optional ‘add-on’ with a minimum donation of $888”)

“Our faith in love and justice calls upon us to build a better world than the one we have found. It calls upon us to give back to the world all the good things we have received, so the less fortunate or most vulnerable members of our society get a chance to achieve a life full of opportunity and beauty. So those who take up the challenge will find concrete opportunities and the energy required to thrive in their own lives.”

~ Andrea Bocelli

Fun

The landscapes of Tuscany look like they belong on a postcard. The gentle rolling hills, golden fields and silvery olive groves have seduced generations of travelers, not to mention film-makers. The region is known for its history, artistic legacy, and influence on high culture. It is regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and of the foundations of the Italian language.

Tuscany is a land to explore slowly. The rhythm of life is gentle here, and many of the small towns that make up the landscape have remained unchanged for centuries. Food is local and seasonal, and the restaurants and food shops are usually family-run. From the incredible cuisine and vineyards to the mountain paths and rolling hills, there is no shortage of things to love about Tuscany!

Maverick Mayhem & Magic…Yes there “may” just be a little bit of fun and magic thrown into the mix….

At previous M3 Summits, Mavericks have had a slumber party in an authentic Mayan village, have been guests at Chris Blackwell’s private farm, integrated into an authentic Rasta village and helped provide clean drinking water to hundreds of families in Puerto Rico.

Here’s what happened last year...

As for the next M3 Summit... you’ll just have to wait to see what’s in store for you…
