Why should we leave it up to networking parties, random seating or luncheons to make the connections that will allow us to grow? The entire retreat is centered around making meaningful connections that will last years past the conference not just swapping business cards.

The biggest breakthroughs come when we work on our business not in our business. Through the entire two days you will be surrounded by the knowledge and people to help you get to the next level. And more importantly, your knowledge can also help others.

Make meaningful connections with other 6 and 7-figure app entrepreneurs at an event like nothing other.


AppMasters is a conference unlike any I’ve ever attended. Virtually all of the attendees are successful mobile entrepreneurs with tens or hundreds of millions of app installs. The best part was day two: roundtables with five to eight people, in which each person had a chance to explain their business and get insight from all the other experts around the table. Everyone learned a ton, and I know for a fact that many of the attendees got insights that fundamentally changed their businesses, putting them on a trajectory for even more success. John Koetsier

App Masters Connect was uniquely small and powerfully connecting, giving us all the opportunity to brainstorm and dive deep with successful app developers and service providers.

I made industry connections and established relationships that will have a profound impact on me and my business for many years to come.

Deb Smith

Past Attendee, Founder,

AppMasters is not another conference. It’s an intimate event where not only the content is carefully curated, but also the attendees!

Steve creates a dynamic where you get to connect with, and tap the minds of, leading app entrepreneurs and experts who are experiencing (or have experienced) similar challenges as you are and have immense insight and expertise to share. Just as valuable, you get to observe their businesses, help, and gain satisfaction and wider perspective as a result.

Steve is relentless in ensuring everyone gets amazing value and I seriously highly recommend it!
