What is M3 ~ Fortune Forum?
M3 ~ Fortune Forum was designed for one specific purpose - for you to have the ability to meet in a small group setting with founders of billion dollar companies.
Our next event in Austin, TX will be with billionaire Drayton McLane!
Forum: a meeting or medium where ideas on a particular issue can be exchanged.
for centuries the Forum was the center of daily life in Rome: the site of elections; public speeches, trials, and the nucleus of commercial affairs

M3 approaches business through a long-term relationship base that I absolutely love! Spending time with the right people is how you create long-term wealth. I’ve gotten a phenomenal amount of value, but not fluff-stuff. They are actual steps I can implement, & every single time it has happened, there was success behind it!

One of the coolest things about M3 is they use experiences to connect entrepreneurs together. Other groups I have been a part of in the past were really hard to form friendships & strong bonds. They make it easy to for this to happen. It’s been fantastic!
