Superbowl Champion and NFL Hall of Famer Ray Lewis Joins Cardone Ventures and Country’s Top CEO’s For Nine Figure Boardroom This Weekend in Scottsdale

Lewis will talk about his keys to success and putting underestimated demographics to work

Cardone Ventures, the Scottsdale-based company that teaches other companies how to grow and scale their business, is proud to announce Super Bowl Champion and NFL Hall of Famer Ray Lewis will headline its

Nine Figure Boardroom happening this weekend at The Scott in Scottsdale.

Lewis, who played 17 seasons in the NFL for the BaltimoreRavens, is only the second player in NFL history to win both the NFL Defensive Player of the Year and Super Bowl MVP award in the same year (2000).

The Super Bowl Champion will share his story,including how he went from winning on the field to winning in business with his 52 Ventures company and how he’s putting underestimated demographics to work. 52 Ventures is uniquely positioned at the nexus of culture, commerce, and community and is dedicated to the ethos of prosperity re-imagined.

“Excited to be a part of such an amazing event. It has been my life’s mission to impact millions of lives. I have seen what the 10X brand and Brandon have built over the years and the impact they have made,” said Ray Lewis. “This collaboration not only impacts the business owners but the employees that work for these businesses. What we are building together will help me achieve my life’s mission.”

Lewis added the under representation of capital available for high growth minority businesses does not come from a lack of will or talent. Rather, this gap encapsulates a myriad of structural barriers underscoring America’s tumultuous history.

The Hall of Famer will also be joined by Brandon Dawson, co-founder of Cardone Ventures who built the first ever decentralized democratized community owned entrepreneur platform and then sold it for 77 times EBITDA. Dawson partnered with Grant Cardone, using the same systems and proprietary scaling process to build Cardone Ventures and grow it from zero to $275 million in less than 60 months.

Other successful CEO’s including Lessen CEO Jay McKee and Hap Klopp, founder and CEO of The North Face will also share lessons they learned along the way. Klopp will share his own journey going from an owner of a small retail store to a worldwide brand and share his knowledge of how to build a thriving enterprise in today’s market.

Dawson says business owners must constantly update their strategies to stay ahead of the curve, not falling behind when an ever-shifting economy changes the rules. “It’s not enough to react to challenges, you must be proactively learning, and setting strategies that anticipate the worst and that’s how you can turn crisis into opportunities. Cardone Ventures provides these methods for thriving to business owners across industries,” said Dawson.

Nine Figure Boardroom is designed to help participants avoid being reactive and instead anticipate what’s to come and capitalize from any economy by being proactive. Strategies covering five key areas of sales, people and leadership, marketing, money mindset and scaling in downturn markets will be used to guide business owners into making decisions that will improve growth and resilience.

“It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when trials and challenges threaten your business,” said Dawson. “Embracing the struggle can lead to opportunities you never thought possible. This event will teach business owners how to turn the struggles into success. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from some of the most successful business owners and get solid advice that will set you on the path to succeed.”
