In order to participate in the adventures a Maverick Business Adventures membership is required. Qualifications include being a successful business owner, entrepreneur or high-achiever with minimum business gross revenue of $1M. Candidates must also be willing to share what has made their businesses successful. The annual MBA membership fee is $10,000. See http://maverickbusinessadventures.com/qualificationdetails.html
“Just one good idea, one new resource or one powerful connection would pay for the trip 100 times over,” says Yanik Silver, founder of MBA. “And since the trip and MBA memberships may qualify as tax deductions, one’s cost is significantly less in real dollars.”
MBA is the first and thus far the only business leadership network to gather successful, like-minded entrepreneurs and top achievers for adrenalin highs and case study networking. Part of the MBA mission is to also give back and help empower future young entrepreneurs (http://maverickbusinessadventures.com/young-entrepreneurs.html). MBA gives money and provides live and virtual educational products and programs for aspiring entrepreneurs sourced in communities where adventure trips are held. Five percent of gross revenues go to self-sustaining charities selected by the members.

MBA member and manufacturer Mike Lally of PCB Group says that these trips take “work hard / play hard” to a whole new level.
“What we found here is a group of like-minded individuals. We\’re not all in the same business; we\’re not doing the same things and that\’s part of the beauty of it. But everybody is here to work hard and play hard, so you get a very intense group of men and women. You don\’t get to meet someone like that in an evening or over a round of golf,” he says.
Maverick Business Adventures is structured to be an exclusive business leadership network and membership is by-application-only, limited to forward thinking business men and women with proven abilities and success. Silver stresses that the focus is not on corporate team building or motivational development. Instead, members will be invited to join all-inclusive adventure outings that encourage the type of high-level networking and powerful connections that can only occur outside of normal business settings.
