Yeah this Summit Series is a HUGE Scam the founders charge TONS of money to startup entrepreneurs that can’t afford the trips but they want to network so badly so they spend it. The founders of Summit Series take a large margin and just use it to travel around the world and party. Both times I met a founder they were drunk, off the money that many times bootstrapped entrepreneurs spent. They say this is invitation only, however they will invite any entrepreneur that is willing to pay the thousands they charge. Trust me, they will ask if you have any entrepreneurial friends,or if you ask can my friend come he has a startup that launched last week. They will absolutely let them in. They use the invitation to make it feel exclusive so you would actually think about paying 3-6k. Look at the attendees list every year, there are hardly any repeats. I went to Aspen, and will never do it again. Do entrepreneurs guys lower the prices so they are at cost, drop the amount of luxury involved in the trip. Let entrepreneurs network, that is all they want to do.

Don’t get me wrong some of the speakers are impressive but its not worth 3.5-6K to go on a 2-3 day trip. Go to europe.
