M3Linked Announces First International Agreement with Move to Canada

BIRMINGHAM, Mich. – (August 31, 2021) – M3Linked, the first-of-its-kind franchise dedicated to cultivating business collaboration, takes a major step today with the announcement of its first international franchise agreement.

The Michigan-based brand that is revolutionizing the act of building collaborative business communities from coast to coast in the United States has now crossed the border into Canada, welcoming Laura and Mark Vaughan with a deal to develop six M3Linked communities across the Toronto market.        

“We’re so excited to build the first Canadian community with M3Linked,” said Laura Vaughan, who is already an M3Linked member. “We have a real heart for business leaders and CEOs of all size of businesses, and that aligns with the values of M3Linked. More tangibly, it is also tricky when meeting people and we’re speaking in Canadian dollars. Building a Toronto community gives people the ability to support each other closer to home and enjoy that more specific Canadian experience. It also does open up Toronto businesses to great opportunities working with other business leaders in the U.S.”

Engagement in M3Linked communities is built on the proprietary M3Linked methodology that removes barriers for business leaders to connect, energize, and grow. Its tiered membership options provide entrepreneurs and executives a next-level experience to securely share their ideas and plans with a like-minded group of leaders with diverse backgrounds and experiences. That is what ultimately attracted the Vaughans to M3Linked.

“We’ve both been involved in business groups, and when you get a business going it can be isolating,” said Mark Vaughan. “That’s when you really need those connections and someone to suggest areas that you need to be thinking about. The focus at M3Linked is very different from the other groups that are out there. The way M3Linked runs and the value it adds is just different. That is why we’re so excited about this.”

Since rebranding as a franchise in 2019, M3Linked has more than three dozen communities open or in development in seven states and in Washington, D.C. Franchise opportunities are available across the U.S. and Canada.

M3Linked CEO Steven Nelick says this agreement is a major milestone in the growth of such a rapidly emerging brand.

“We are thrilled to work with the Vaughans to bring M3Linked to Canada,” said Nelick. “They know first-hand the value of such high-level collaboration and are the perfect leaders to build valuable communities in the Toronto area. M3Linked is built on the mission of eliminating barriers in business, so not only is adding Laura as a female community leader the latest example of doing just that, but expanding across the border shows the potential for substantial growth moving forward.”
