Ryan Benz

President, Redev CNY, Oh My Darling, Parthenon Books

"I took a chance and I was blown away by the people, the experiences. Recognizing there’s such a great sense of we are all in this together, there’s no egos, and let’s grow together."

Kate Houck

Executive Director, David's Refuge

"My first year in Profound has been, everything I can dream of, and I wanted to join this group because for me, community is the key to everything. Deep relationships with other amazing human beings is how the world goes round and I want to be a part of it."

Dennis Nave

Managing Partner, Nave Law Firm

"You know, for me, it's just, again, about being with the community of people. That to me is what this is all about. And if you know the right people in your community, hey, I know this person. I got somebody here. Or maybe I can call to help me bounce ideas off certain people to me. And that's the strongest piece of this.”

Eli Smith

Owner, E. Smith Contractors

“My experience so far has so far what I expected my expectations of what I thought was going to happen, you guys Arel, and Jeff, and Adam have far surpassed that. Everyone here organically is here to see the greater community rise up and do well and its a great mixture of all different business that are trying to leave a lasting imprint in the community of which we serve.” 

Suresh Goel

CEO, Progressive Implantology

“If you've ever been in a mastermind group before, it's hard to describe how much you have an opportunity to learn. But that's one thing I would say is approach it as an opportunity to learn and share your experiences, but take advantage of the time here. Everyone here has an open door policy. They want to have your phone calls.”

Kate Nutting

Principal & Managing Member, VIP Architectural Associates

“It's amazing here because it's such a layered approach. You meet a few people and you think you've kind of got the group and you're not even close to it! I look around and there's another 20 tables and I'm like, Oh my gosh, I got to go actively reach out to everybody. And I think my favorite part about this experience of ours, people bring their whole selves.”

Nick Barnello

Owner, Northeastern Contractors

“My experience so far, meeting people at Profound, has been amazing. I've gotten great relationships with people. I've actually done business with a bunch of people from here. You know, the friendships are way outside of this, and it's it's awesome. It's exactly what I signed up for.”

Jaime Venditti

Managing Partner & President J Strategies Inc.

“Profound seemed like an organization that I could come in at a midway point and still be integrated and feel like I was a part of the group, – and I’m so happy to say I was right!”

Joe Dougherty

Sales Manager, Genesee Regional Bank

"I met Pete McGraw at Profound. We got talking and we’re talking about our business ideas, and I talked about one of mine and he had. We just got going back and forth and so now we’re already starting a company together and it’s hard to believe it won’t be successful.”

Hasan Stephens

Founder & CEO, Good Life Youth Foundation

“So any time you come to Profound, you have all these creative minds that are in business, successful, and when you put that together, it sparks so many new ideas for yourself and you find yourself also being able to give some of the ideas that you have back and it just ping pongs back and forth and it just becomes like intoxicating to be able to have that interaction.”

Bill Schoff

Managing Director UBS Financial Services Inc.

“Only a few months in, Profound has already exceeded my expectations. I’ve met some of the most interesting people in Upstate New York! In my line of business, I have to do that in NYC, Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles…... But at Profound, they’re all right down the road! I’ll will have forged some great relationships by the time we’re done.”
