How Dollar Beard Club Grew to $40Million in 2 Years w/Alex Brown

Wednesday, January 10 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm • Organized By Twenty30CEO
1828 Walnut St, Kansas City, MO 64108


The Growth Accelerator Series is a new initiative from Twenty30CEO to help Midwest innovators learn how to grow brands into regional or national powerhouses. We do this by bringing some of the absolute best business minds to Kansas City for intimate sessions where they can share how they did it, and give advice for getting to the next level.

Wednesday Jan. 10, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of the Dollar Beard Club, Alex Brown, is flying in to help local entrepreneurs, brand builders and innovators scale! In their first year, their revenues exceeded Dollar Shave Club's first year while spending next to nothing on marketing. By their second year they were worth $40 million. In addition to D.B.C., Alex & Chris currently run an invite-only conference where they bring in the top (consistent) viral video creators, and have them lead sessions with select entrepreneurs and business leaders on how to create videos that build a loyal community around your brand while making people want to share them. Alex & Chris have also ran successful Kickstarters, scaled brick & mortar companies, grew service businesses from scratch and have been featured on SharkTank where they brokered a deal with the sharks for a product they invented!

Alex will be discussing what you need to do now, if you want to experience wild growth in the near future. This is your opportunity to talk to someone with a unique perspective about:

  • How to build a brand to take over a niche/sector
  • The science behind turning potential customers into brand loyalists
  • How to successfully launch a product, initiative or service so that people actually care
  • What goes into the backend of creating overnight success stories


The event is free, although if you want to donate afterwards based on the value you received, we'll love you forever!


We look forward to seeing you!
