About the event

The Summit

Our yearly in-person retreat for you — a valued Lighter Client. The Summit is an extension of the Lighter Capital Community, providing keen insights and valuable takeaways you can start using the moment you return to your business. It's why attendees return year after year!

Current clients and alumni alike tell us that bonding and brainstorming with other accomplished, motivated entrepreneurs have had a lasting impact on their professional and personal growth.

The Experience

Enjoy two days in a casual environment, packed with organic engagements and meaningful conversations that run counter to the typical stuffy, mind-numbingly corporate retreats.

Expect a full yet relaxed schedule that’s structured to help you cultivate your startup more effectively, advance your leadership skills, and build new relationships.

The Day-by-Day Overview

  • Wednesday 10/11: 4 pm check-in, welcome reception, dinner, and introductions.
  • Thursday 10/12: Panel sessions, roundtable discussions, breaks, and group activity in the Austin area.
  • Friday 10/13: Panel sessions, roundtable discussions, Summit wrap-up. 3 pm event closes.
