Challenge Yourself.
Grow Your Company.

Leading a high-growth company can be both exhilarating and daunting. Success requires adaptability and decisiveness. Time becomes a leader’s most valuable asset, decision-making the most valuable skill. Challenges specific to second-stage companies demand just-in-time knowledge and robust networks.

As a public-private initiative, CEO Nexus can measurably improve access to resources essential to overcoming the inevitable obstacles your fast-growing company will face—challenges that can accelerate progress or inhibit growth.

CEO Nexus is designed to assist CEOs or presidents of second-stage companies who want their business to experience substantial, rapid growth and who have the capacity to lead their companies down this challenging, entrepreneurial path. In general, your company is second stage if it’s privately held, employs 10 to 99 people, generates between $1 million and $50 million in annual revenues, has the capacity to grow, and—inspired and led by you—the intention to grow. Capacity and intention are more clearly defined during the application and interview process.
