So why have we waited until May to give you an update on our programs for 2018? We have been heads down preparing to launch Connecting CEOs of product and recurring revenue companies with Capital Connect, Customer Connect and Talent Connect.
Additionally, we’ve hosted many fantastic exclusive CEO only dinners this past year at some of Atlanta’s hottest restaurants – 10 Degrees South, KR Steakbar and Warhorse Investments to mention a few. Our invitation-only dinner events are limited to 35 CEOs who run product or recurring revenue companies – an elite peer group ideal for networking and relationship building. Over the past year, we have brought together 70 unique CEOs and we look forward to continuing this in 2018.
In addition to the dinners, we’ve hosted 2 CXO networking events with over 200 CXOs, partners and CEOs attending. Our CEOs and CXOs have been busy building high quality relationships at our events. Our January CXO program included three private equity-backed CEOs whose combined wealth creation topped close to $1B! Our CXO relationship building programs have been very proactive about bringing in additional C-suite executives like CTOs & CFOs.
Remaining 2018 Events
This month, we will be working on refining our program and business model for the second half of 2018. However, we have exclusive dinners and programs throughout the summer.
Please visit our website here to request an invitation to our remaining 2018 events.
Stay tuned to hear about our launch of the Capital Connect program, exclusively for CEOs. Capital Connect is another way we continue to build meaningful relationships for the Atlanta CEO community.
