During our one week program, no more than 12 entrepreneurs will participate, giving you individualized attention while you benefit from wisdom-sharing with a group of your peers. The goal of Birthing of Giants is simple: make this year the best year in the life of your company. Take this journey with your peers while being expertly guided by mentors Norm Brodsky and Lewis Schiff as well as guest mentors.

Each group will be made up of ONE type of entrepreneur. Either:

  • Group 1: Owners of companies with revenues grater than $10 million
  • Group 2: Owners of companies with revenues between $2 million and $10 million
  • Group 3: Owners of companies just starting out

If your application to Birthing of Giants is accepted, over the course of the next twelve months, you will attend a week-long program divided into four "amplification" sessions:

Management Amplification:

Sales Amplification: 

Fewer Salespeople, More Sales
