ONE INDUSTRY SPECIALIST PER GROUP
PARTNERS & UPPER
Highrise has enabled me to significantly expand my network. I appreciate the fact that my group consists of top-notch professionals without any overlap in specialties. I have referred several matters to fellow members of my group and I look forward to continuing to cultivate these relationships.

Our mastermind format allows you to tap into the collective knowledge and experience of the Highrise community to work on issues that are relevant to your success. For some members, this means connecting with new clients while for others, it’s about refining their business strategy or solving operational issues. In the end, it’s about utilizing the
power of collaboration to achieve success.
Benjamin Franklin created the Mastermind Group. Many of the most successful people in history have followed his path including Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Franklin Roosevelt, Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Schwab.
To further encourage collaboration among like-minded members across regional groups, Highrise offers Verticals – real estate, mergers and acquisitions, legal, women, employment, technology, and entertainment. Vertical meetings are held quarterly and focus on industry-specific developments and opportunities. The collective experience and focused objectives create an environment for engaging discussion and notable results.
We believe success is built on relationships. That is why we host events throughout the year to bring Members together from across regional groups. Events include mixers, special dinners, poker nights and golf outings. Our events allow Members to connect in a less formal, fun-filled atmosphere. Members also have the opportunity to host events to highlight their firm or focus on a particular theme or topic.
Research shows that people in proximity form stronger, more productive relationships. The research also shows that face-to-face business meetings produce more revenue and profit than any other form of communication. This research is one of the cornerstones of our model.
Our groups are designed around vertical environments to make getting to and from meetings very time efficient. Often, our Members can walk a block or two or even take the elevator to their meetings.
To ensure that our groups remain mutually beneficial to all members, Highrise membership is by invitation only and limited to senior-level professionals. Members are selected through an interview process. Our membership committee takes into consideration the experience, knowledge, geography and collaborative mindset of each potential member.
Professional diversity is evaluated in every new member decision. The mix of industry specialties in each group creates a positive dynamic and guarantees discipline exclusivity. Each group is carefully curated to promote an enriching experience for all members.
