"The CEO Social is the first networking event I have attended that I was not planning my escape 5 minutes after my arrival!"
- Robert Hessel, CEO of Source 1 Solutions
We provide CEOs and Business Owners with a one-time opportunity to build quality relationships with 10-12 growth-minded peers. Our events are highly-vetted and hyper-focused on bringing together successful, driven owners and entrepreneurs.
We provide the setting to have real quality interactions that consistently lead to future opportunities. What happens next is up to you! This is not a membership, this is a legitimate social invitation.
