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
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.
We believe second-stage business owners are the economic superheroes of the American free enterprise system. They create a disproportionate number of net new, sustainable jobs and generate the revenue and wealth that help our communities prosper. 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.
The CEO Nexus Promise
Central to everything we do is the CEO roundtable program. These peer-to-peer discussion groups are the foundation of a member network of qualified business leaders. This entrepreneurial environment is designed to deliver our propriety process, custom content and relevant best practices – making it easier for members to solve the inevitable problems owners face while scaling their businesses.
Our pledge to you as a CEO Nexus member:
1. We promise to provide a confidential setting where you will receive relevant input and feedback from CEO peers who understand your role and the challenges you face.
2. We promise to ask the tough but fair questions you need to hear to establish the context required to make better decisions faster and with greater confidence.
3. We promise to provide a culture of accountability needed to stay on target and on task as you pursue your near-term and long-term goals.
We are confident you will gain a new and expanded perspective on your business and your role as the leader. Join us, and we will work together to achieve your goals.
We serve CEOs and executive teams leading growth-oriented, second-stage businesses by providing a peer-based learning program designed to help companies continue to prosper and build intrinsic, long-term value.

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.
