We are so inspired by the businesses in our community because of how many of them are committed to helping to make the world better than it is today. Check out some great businesses below and how they are helping others.

Michael Fishman | Co-Founder @ Maverick Community

Maverick Community is creating a platform for wellness and fitness professionals to be successful business owners and entrepreneurs. We subdivide fitness space into private and group studios, provide fitness equipment, team member help (check-in, cleaning), and production equipment, and then rent the studios to fitness and wellness professionals.
Wellness professionals work AT Maverick Community, not FOR Maverick Community, and, therefore, will be able to enjoy more freedom, brand building opportunities, and income without having to take on the risk of opening their own facility and hiring employees. Read more>>

ChouAmi is made from stainless and glass with a food-grade silicone gasket, and really built to last a life time, which also contributes to lessening our environmental burden. Read more>>
