Your OWNERSHIP JOURNEY™
Every business owner has their own personal journey with their business. CEO Nexus will meet you where you are at on your journey and provide the resources and context to help accomplish your goals. Central to our program is the roundtable experience, which will help you look at your business from a broader perspective.
THE Paradox of leadership
It can be surprisingly lonely at the top™. As the leader of a growing second-stage company, there are some issues and pressures you may be reluctant to share with your staff, such as personal guarantees, payroll concerns, compliance and eventual succession and exit planning. If you’ve ever felt this isolation as a business leader, rest assured, you’re not alone.
5 reasons to join a CEO peer group
Below are five reasons to join a CEO peer group.
- Framework for success. Access to a proven problem-solving process designed specifically for CEOs leading second-stage businesses.
- Wisdom of the crowd. You have someone on your level who you can talk to about your problems and challenges. Roundtables provide a confidential setting and can serve as a quality sounding board.
- Lifehacks for CEOs. You’ll be exposed to the experience of your roundtable, including proven business practices that could take years to learn on your own.
- Real-time problem-solving. You can bring issues up at roundtable meetings and receive the context needed to make better decisions faster and with greater confidence.
- Accountability. As the owner and leader of your business, there’s often no one to hold you accountable. Roundtable members will give you unvarnished, honest assessments that provide accountability and drive your business forward.
If one or more of these 5 reasons resonate with you, CEO Nexus can be of service.

CEO Nexus was founded with a single focus – to serve CEOs leading growth-oriented, second-stage businesses as they navigate the opportunities and challenges of achieving their goals.

POWER OF PEER LEARNING™
Imagine the opportunity to vet new ideas and trouble shoot issues with other like-minded business leaders. CEO peer groups or mastermind groups can serve as a sounding board, providing you more resources to solve problems. The CEO Nexus Roundtable program is designed specifically for CEOs leading growth-oriented, second-stage businesses.
What would your business be like without you? When you look at the key functions of a business the way an investor or buyer looks from the outside in on your business, you get a clearer picture of the functions that need attention. The Roundtable Framework™ Assessment is a self-assessment that gives owners a visual guide on business functions, producing a picture of strengths and weaknesses.
