Yanik Silver is an entrepreneur, author, and well-known digital marketing expert.[1] Silver is the founder of Maverick Business Adventures, an invitation-only club for high net worth and adventurous entrepreneurs.[2][3]

Early career[edit]

Silver came to the United States at the age of two, when his parents emigrated from Russia.[4][5] He began by selling medical equipment for his father's College Park, MD medical supply business at age 14.[6]

In 1998, Silver undertook his first entrepreneurial venture: a $900 marketing course for cosmetic surgeons.[6] By the time he was 26, he was making $10,000 to $15,000 a month teaching physicians how to improve their sales.[4][7]

Silver used $1,800 of investment capital to launch "Instant Sales Letters," a Web 1.0 service that provided writing templates for sales letters.[8][9] According to Forbes, he's produced more than half a dozen seven figure online businesses since then.[10]

Maverick 1000[edit]

Silver, a self-described "adventure junkie," founded Maverick Business Adventure & Maverick 1000 in 2008.[11][12] MBA mixes high-thrill adventure and intimate entrepreneurial networking. The group is invitation only, and entrepreneurs worth or earning more than $1 million are eligible.[3] The cost to join is $15,000.[13]

The club has scuba dived off Iceland's Silfra Ravine, been off-road racing with Jesse James, annually spend a week at Richard Branson's Necker Island, had simulation dogfights in World War II–era planes, and featured sessions with Tony Hawk, John Paul DeJoria, James, and Branson.[6][9][11] MBA is also a philanthropic organization and Silver says he has "a goal by 2020 [of] getting 10,000 young entrepreneurs aged 13–23 to start their own companies."[4][11]
