To cultivate a culture where we believe the very best in our people, provide the very best for our people and call out the very best from our people.

Our definition of the VERY BEST means a life where we are giving as much value and serving as many other people as possible.


Greater Value Network LLC is an Austin-based professional networking organization that is changing the way people think about networking. Founder/Entrepreneur Chris Stege speaks weekly about the power of partnerships and the principles of service and giving as a means to grow a business. Our model is built entirely upon the development of outward-facing relationships, instead of the traditional networking routine of gathering as many business cards as one can collect each week.

Greater Value Network is built on the principle that it is much better to give than it is to receive. Every GVN partner is guided by our core values which define how we work, how we interact with each other and how we determine the very best service for our clients, and the local community.
