Turn your business into a wealth generating machinE!

Three Full Days for Just $297!

May 29 - 31, 2024 in Nashville, TN

From Bilges & Battlefields to Boardrooms,

We Support Our Troops & Vets.

As a partner with ATL Vets, Angel Investors Network is helping veterans buy, scale, and exit businesses to help them excel in their post-military career!

What Is the Business Wealth Summit?

Angel Investors Network is hosting the Business Wealth Summit to show business owners, entrepreneurs, angel investors and anyone interested in running a business how to turn practically any business into a wealth creation vehicle!

It's an opportunity to learn about capital raising, business growth strategies, increasing enterprise value, and exiting for maximum profits.

We are going to spend three days covering our DVRS - ASE Method of using businesses to generate monthly cashflow and wealth creation through Brand Equity.

Who should attend?

If you are interested in learning how the world of Private Equity or Mergers & Acquisitions works, or are curious about the art of Scaling and Selling a business for maximum value, this is the room for you!

Entrepreneurs: Starting or growing a business of your own? Come learn from a diverse group of speakers that have collectively generated over $7 Billion in capital, sales, and licensing deals and taken dozens of companies all the way through to an exit. And let's face it...if you're an entrepreneur and are not figuring out how to make your company as valuable for you and your shareholders as it can be, then what are you doing?

Business Owners: Interested in some day exiting your business, but not sure where to start or how to sell for maximum value? Then join us to learn how deals can be structured to maximize your value and reduce your taxes in the process.

Investors: Don't want to run a business yourself, but also want to find alternative ways to build your portfolio? Come learn how these strategies are helping investors pocket 10%, 20%, even 30% or more annual returns in the private equity and small business markets!

What will I learn?

Our speakers, panelists, and hosts will cover a variety of topics related to business acquisition, growth, and profitability.

You'll learn everything from how to find and evaluate a deal if you're interested in investing...

To figuring out what the levers are you should use to scale a company and maximize its enterprise value...

As well as how to set your business up for long term success and a lucrative exit...

And of course there is the world-class networking!

You will create a rolodex of people that you will not easily find outside of these four walls that will catapult your career, business, or portfolio to the next level!

Why Should I Attend?

Let's cut straight to the point...if you are serious about making a difference in your life and the lives of those around you, or making an impact and leaving your mark...

There is no better way to help more people and make a bigger difference than by running a successful company!

Why do we say that?

Well, for starters, let's look at what we call "Torrential Downpour Economics".

When Amazon first started, it was Jeff Bezos in his garage. Now, how many countless millions of people are not only employed by Amazon, but are also selling their products on the platform, are vendors to the company, are delivering packages ordered on Amazon, and on, and on.

Additionally, the biggest givers in the world are those who have built wealth with their businesses and then started foundations. Think Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and many more.

That's also why we discuss philanthropy at our events.

So, if you want to make a difference in the world...

If you want your own financial independence...

If you are serious about helping others...

And you want to network with the best and brightest people who are doing the same thing...

You need to be here!

Why start from scratch when you can profit from day one?

Starting a business from the ground up is a monumental task filled with uncertainties. It’s the path most traveled, but not necessarily the path to quick success. What if you could bypass the usual hurdles and begin your entrepreneurial journey with a thriving business already in full swing? That’s not just a possibility—it’s your best next move.

My name is Jeff Barnes, and over the past 15 years I've started, from scratch, over a dozen businesses. I've failed at most of them. Just like most entrepreneurs.

One I took from $0 to $17 Million in revenue (profitably) in just eight months...and I can tell you that was one of the most arduous and painful experiences I can imagine!

don't make my mistakes!

The fact is that starting a business from the ground up requires a tremendous amount of risk and headaches.

True, it could get you into the coveted Unicorn Club, but the fact is that is less than .1% of all companies...ever!

There's a better path to business ownership...and profits.

The Smart Way to Wealth Creation: Buy, Don’t Build

When I was younger, and admittedly a whole lot more enthusiastic about taking on the most massive challenges, I wanted to be that guy that was going to make the next big thing and be a bazillionaire.

During my journey I had several successes, including a seven-figure wellness practice, an eight-figure eCommerce company, and even tens of millions of dollars invested into my various companies.

I also sat on the boards of several companies and non-profits over the years and helped hundreds of companies raise millions of dollars.

In fact, at last count the portfolio of companies I've helped launch or raise capital has surpassed $1 Billion.

And while that all sounds really cool and meaningful, I'm pretty sure it's carved years off my life and didn't result in the number one thing I always wanted...

Wealth, Freedom, & Autonomy

After all, that's all I really wanted when I went down the entrepreneur's route. I did everything any good entrepreneur should do...

Went to the seminars.

Read the books.

Joined the masterminds.

Hell, I even got my Leadership MBA and took several courses on raising capital, venture capital, and entrepreneurship.

And I learned a lot.

Why You Should Skip the Startup Phase

The startup world glamorizes the "grind" — long hours, endless challenges, and the thrill of potential big payouts. But for most, this world delivers more stress than success.

Why not bypass that initial chaos and step into a role where the groundwork has already been laid out for you?

After all, the goal is NOT to spend your entire life trying to get to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, is it?

I want to show you how to shortcut your path to freedom and autonomy.

My Revelation:

Buying Beats Building

After years of personal trials and immense stress, I discovered a more straightforward, more reliable way to wealth creation—buying an established business. This approach allowed me to leverage existing operations, capitalize on current customer loyalty, and generate revenue from day one without the typical startup growing pains.

I've since partnered with an amazing group of people, many of whom will be at this event, to focus on finding the most profitable, well-run companies that are looking for experienced teams to lead them to the next level.

Here’s What You Gain

Buying a Business:

  1. Immediate Revenue Stream: Unlike startups that spend months or years in the red, an acquired business brings in money from the first day.

  2. Established Brand and Customer Base: You inherit a brand with a reputation and a customer base that trusts it, saving you the hefty costs and time of building these from scratch.

  3. Proven Business Model: There’s no need to guess what works; you have historical data and a path forward based on proven strategies.

  4. Support Network: With Angel Investors Network, you’re not just acquiring a business; you’re gaining access to a support system of experienced professionals who are vested in your success.

And here's the really, really, really important part...


Buy a Problem!

My guess is that if you've ever thought about alternative ways to build wealth, such as through real estate investing, you've probably heard about "value add" opportunities, right?

That's where you buy something at a bargain price, do something to it to make it more attractive, and then resell it at a higher price.

That is NOT what I am referring to here.

We focus exclusively on buying profitable businesses that can put cash in our pockets immediately.

In fact, you're going to hear some incredible case studies at our event about just to take something that is working and make it better and make even more money with it.

Take my business partner, Bernt Ullmann, for example.

You're going to hear from Bernt how he took one low 7-figure brand from being slightly profitable to a nine-figure exit!

Learn how Bernt took one brand from low 8-figures to a 9-figure exit!

Build Wealth Like the Titans!

Tony Robbins Holy Grail of Investing

Maybe you've heard of this guy, Tony Robbins?

Well Tony is quoted millions of times as saying "Success Leaves Clues".

Of course that's accurate, but one thing you have to admire about Tony is that he practices what he preaches.

And his latest book, "The Holy Grail of Investing" talks directly about the strategies we are going to unveil at the Business Wealth Summit.

You see, the wealthiest people in the world simply do things differently.

They don't invest in mutual funds or have their money in an IRA or 401(k) and let the markets dictate their returns.

No, they have specific strategies for building wealth. In fact...

Over 46% of Ultra High Net

Worth Individuals Invest in

Private Companies!

And that is exactly what we're going to cover during this three-day event in Nashville!

We are going to show you how to find the best, most qualified opportunities to acquire, how to put the deal together, and best of all, how you can do it without ever operating a single company!

We will show you how to

own Businesses...

not run them!

I want to make sure I'm very clear on this point...

We are not going to show you how to buy a J-O-B.

We are going to go through the entire process, start to finish, on how to find, acquire, and profit from existing businesses as an OWNER.

In fact, what we're doing is showing you how to utilize Robert Kiyosaki's Cashflow Quadrant to your advantage and instantly put you in the driver's seat of wealth creation and protection!

Businesses that you don't have to run or operate on a day-to-day basis is the cornerstone of wealth creation for the wealthiest people on the planet!

It's not real estate like most people think.

Jeff Barnes with Robert Kiyosaki
Robert Kiyosaki Cashflow Quadrant

I actually got to chat with Robert about that a little while ago, and he agreed.

"The only thing better than owning a business that runs without you is a business that pays you cash flow consistently without you EVER being a part of it! That's called being a passive investor."

And that my friend, is exactly what these three days at the Business Wealth Summit will show you...

How to be a passive investor in a business and start earning cash flow almost instantly!

So if you are interested in learning all of the ins-and-outs of owning a portfolio of companies (not just one), and you want to learn from some of the best in the business how to make that happen, then there's only one choice.

Join us may 29 - 31 in nashville at the business wealth summit!
