VIP DAYS January 14th-15th, 2024

The only event where everyone in the room is a 7 or 8-Figure digital entrepreneur building service based agencies.
Agency owners come together and share strategies that THEY DO NOT WANT TO SHARE PUBLICLY.
This is a room of collaboration. Not competition.

Welcome to Agency Founders

8 Figure agency owners pulling back the curtain to yet again reveal what elite agencies do differently than everyone else. The information shared at this event by our speakers has NEVER publicly been discussed. All speakers are actively running 8-figure agencies in today’s world.

This event is designed to do one thing:

Give you the blueprint to build an agency that can grow without you while also surrounding you with like minded agency owners, like yourself.

This is the HIGHEST level agency group at any one single event in today’s world.

Why attend agency founders live?

UNPRECEDENTED Access to Industry Leaders & Market Movers

We've compiled the A-team when it comes to serious players who've changed the game when it comes to growing an agency. All of them flying in from all over the world to be in one room together for a few days.

Networking Guaranteed to Add a Couple Zeros to Your Annual Revenue

That old saying “Your network is your net worth” has never been more true. Over the last 5 years we have made DOZENS of potentially million-dollar connections that opened the door to exclusive events, generated a ton of opportunities, and even directly landed us clients. And we've reached out to our network to give you the exact same opportunity. The people in this room are 7 & 8-figure earners.

A No-Pitch, Value First Approach

We've all been to events that just feel like one big pitch fest. Well, not here. Each and every session is stuffed to the GILLS with piping hot value. Many presentations have yet to ever be done publicly, so you'll be the first & only group to gain this knowledge.

Topics That Matter

Skills like client retention, culture, operations, and leadership are all the things that no one wants to talk about —because no one knows what they are. But they are the keys to growth, stability, and scaling and we've brought the lineup that BACKS IT UP.

Introducing your 9-Figure
Speaker Lineup

All speakers are ACTIVELY operating multiple 8-figure businesses combining for 9-figures per year in revenue and are going to be sharing information that is exclusive to this room of high-end agency owners.

Dear Agency Owner,

From the desks of Ashton Shanks & Eddie Maalouf:

Over the last 7 years we have made DOZENS of 8-figure connections that opened the door to exclusive events, generated a ton of opportunities, and even directly landed us clients.


The problem is that most events are a pitch fest & not built to genuinely give the attendees the best chance at collaborating with each other and growing. Last year, we changed that. And this year, it’s going to be even better.


One night is a networking mixer event that pretty much gift-wraps and hands you the connections you can build on for life.


Plus, there will be an opportunity to get VIP access to Ashton, Eddie, and all the speakers who will help you brainstorm your personal “plan of attack” to hit your most ambitious agency goals.

Spots are EXTREMELY Limited

If you want us to help you smash your agency goals for the upcoming year… getting better results for yourself and your clients than most agencies will EVER experience… act fast.


Due to space restrictions, we simply won’t be able to accept everyone who wants in. Seats are extremely limited and when they’re gone, they’re gone. So don’t wait till they run out.


Last year we had to cut off ticket sales over a month before the event and we hope you can join before we do so.


Click below to accept your invitation.


Can’t wait to see you there,


- Ashton & Eddie
