The Underground Evolution

In 2003, digital-marketing expert and serial entrepreneur, Yanik Silver, started what would become a legendary event in the online marketing industry: Underground Online Seminar®.

For an entire decade, the sold-out Underground Online Seminar® provided high level Internet marketing information from real-world, in-the-trenches presenters quietly making their fortunes online.

It was the top networking and learning event for Internet marketers with participating attendees and presenters such as Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com, Mike Faith, CEO of Headsets.com, Darren Rowse, ProBlogger.com, Bob Parsons, CEO of GoDaddy.com, Gary Vaynerchuk, author of “Crush it” and Jessica Jackley, co-founder of Kiva.org.

The event grew to attract 450+ serious online entrepreneurs each year from all over the globe to stay ahead of the curve on topics including Gamification, mobile commerce, apps, social media, SEO, affiliate marketing, paid content strategies, eCommerce, and much more.

After UGX (Underground® 10) in 2014, Yanik decided more of his time and focus would be dedicated to Maverick1000, his invitation-only global network of industry-changing entrepreneurs, and to the launch of The Evolved Enterprise, his book/course/movement focused on helping business owners make more money, find more happiness, and achieve greater success by becoming more conscious and involved stewards of their community.

In order for Underground® to continue as what Forbes Magazine called, “one of the 10 must-attend conferences for entrepreneurs”, he needed the perfect partner to take it over. In the fall of 2015, he approached industry power-couple and Maverick entrepreneurs, Dush and Terra Ramachandran of The Net Momentum with the idea, and they jumped at the opportunity to bring the iconic conference back to the digital entrepreneur community.

This October 14-16, with great excitement, Yanik, Dush, Terra, and The Net Momemtum Team bring you…

Information for Potential Sponsors

Underground® Sponsors provide unique resources, tools and support for online entrepreneurs and marketers. We only accept a small number of these companies to provide their expertise, goods and services for Underground® attendees, and each Sponsor must fit the Underground® brand and values.

Underground® attracts a unique, sophisticated, and savvy audience. The best way to sell to the Underground audience is by delivering exceptional value, and letting your expertise speak for itself. Therefore, please note that Underground® is a pitch-free event. All presentations must deliver pure content. At the end of your talk, you are welcome to briefly mention your offer or how attendees can work with you further, but traditional sales pitching is strictly prohibited.

Underground® helps digital entrepreneurs grow their businesses, by presenting actionable mind and business expanding content in 3 areas:

  1. Underground Marketing Tactics: This was Yanik’s original idea behind the conference – bringing “underground” online entrepreneurs to the stage to share their strategies and tactics with the audience. The “underground” entrepreneur is someone who most people have never heard of, but who is quietly making a fortune online.
  1. Underground Business Building Strategies: We see the hallmarks of success – the beautiful home, the great car, the exotic travels, and the pictures with various business icons. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. What’s going on “underground” in the business – the part that we don’t see? Rarely is everything as easy or as rosy as it looks on the outside. Underground brings speakers to the stage who lift the hood on their own businesses to share their hard-won success secrets, and the failures and lessons that helped them get there.
  1. Underground Mindset Strategies: As entrepreneurs, our businesses are always a reflection of ourselves – for better or for worse. The more stable, confident, and courageous we are on the inside; the more our businesses will reflect those same attributes. But feeling stable, confident, and courageous is often easier said than done when the launch you’ve worked on for months fails. When the bills are piling up and the sales aren’t coming in. When you lose a key employee. When your personal life is falling apart. And most often, when you’re attempting to build something bigger than you’ve ever built before, but the critic in your brain spins its story of fear and failure at every turn.

At Underground, you’ll hear from speakers who’ve developed key mindset strategies to win the mental game, which gives them the leverage they need to win in business and life.
