I am a huge believer in “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” Grow Offline is just that! A confidential, goal-oriented, accountability group, driving me to be my best self. The cherry on top was the philanthropic element which benefited my local dog rescue.

The deal flow alone is worth joining Grow Offline. I’ve discovered my best-performing real estate funds via this network. And I really enjoy my monthly peer meetup. They curated an amazing group of talented people.

The memes about making friends outside of work as an adult are real! My favorite part of Grow Offline is the instant access to a group of like-minded, successful professionals. A big part of my recent successes I attribute to my group keeping me in check on my goals!

About the Founder

Mark O’Brien has worked with 500+ clients at his digital marketing agency, taught over 500,000 students in his online courses, operated eCommerce stores with 1,000+ product SKUs, invested in 10,000+ multifamily units, 40+ venture capital investments, and scaled/exited three startups as the founder.

After selling his most recent business, he no longer “qualified” for the peer networks Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) and Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO); so he launched Grow Offline to include all the best elements of EO, YPO, Vistage, BNI, Chief, and Tiger 21, plus the option for members to invest together.



Our only requirement is that you are an accredited investor. Members include entrepreneurs, founders, HNWI, and investors. After being a member of other peer networks (e.g. YPO, EO, Tiger 21), I’ve found that a dedicated, high-caliber, accountability group is vital for talking shop, self-improvement, sharing investment deal flow, goal setting, and much more.

To join, click the APPLY button on this page. Once you apply and are approved to join, you will instantly be added to our private online community and your local chapter meetup.

Each chapter group will have an annual volunteer Chapter President to hold the group accountable on meetup dates, lead meetings (clock management), and share relevant info with the group. For each chapter, we will select Chapter Presidents who have a location/business office available to host monthly meetups. The best Chapter Presidents are natural leaders who want to help members flourish within their group. In the Application, note your interest in being a Chapter President for your city.

Each city will act as a chapter as we grow (e.g. Seattle, Los Angeles, Charlotte, etc.) with 10 people max per chapter group (5-10 is the optimal size used by other popular peer networks). Pending demand in each location, there will be multiple chapter groups based on your local zip code.

Not all members will get an in-person Monthly Local Chapter Meetup as it depends on member location/demand in that city. Every member will get access to our private online community.

No. A motto at Grow Offline is “a rising tide lifts all boats”, so this includes members sharing exclusive deal flow with fellow members. One of our main goals at Grow Offline is to curate the highest ROI funds and investment opportunities for our members. When opportunities with high minimum investment requirements arise, we will help members pool capital and invest together via Grow Offline funds/SPVs. At scale, we will be able to get allocations in any deal/fund with our massive accredited investor network.

Our syndicate provides members exclusive SPV investment opportunities (e.g. investments in high-demand startups, pre-IPO shares, and more). All SPV investments are optional. Get access now at:

No membership fee.
