Juno Summit – Amazing Small Business Training Benefiting an 8 year old fighting Leukemia

Feb 12, 2020 | Member News

Laura Smith is a Fort Collins native and the owner of All Star Cleaning, which won a 2019 Small Business of the year award from the Chamber. Her daughter Juno was diagnosed with a rare type of Leukemia in November. This will be a three or more year battle and there are not even any treatment facilities in Fort Collins so she has to go to Denver for all of her treatments. Laura has been a huge influence on the home cleaning industry and extremely giving so her friends decided to help her by doing what we do best, create a service and sell it as a fund raiser. So we are hosting the Juno Summit.

We have 20 of the best and brightest home service business owners in America coming to Block One in Fort Collins to share their secrets. These people combined do over $50 million a year in revenue and they are coming to teach in Fort Collins all to benefit a local 8 year old fighting Leukemia.

You probably don’t know these speakers but they are rockstars who normally don’t share their secrets and 20 people who do know these people have pledged to donate $3,000 each already. Rohan Gilkes is a good example. In 10 years Rohan did all of the following. Founded a company called Maids in Black and grew it to $3.0 million in a year in revenue. Built a software platform called Launch 27 to manage home service companies and sold it for over $15 million dollars, built and sold an online lawncare company, a shaving subscription box, and an online moving company. He has a huge social media following on Facebook and Reddit with the most popular subreddit for entrepreneurship for the last 5 years in a row. He also started a company called Inclusive which competes with AirBNB with an emphasis on minorities that suspiciously find their reservations cancelled on AirBNB all the time. Rohan has helped launch over 300 home service companies. All in ten years. He never speaks in public anymore but he is coming to this event as he is a big fan of Laura.

This is a great opportunity businesses in the area to hear world class speakers and to benefit a great cause.

April 23-25 in Fort Collins
