There are dozens of issues we as Founders|CEOs of startups, growing, or stable companies experience and understand. We have learned that it is lonely at the top. And that the community at large assumes we have it all figured out. We don’t. As of right now, there are limited resources for Founders|CEOs to just talk and work through problems together. The Founder|CEO meetup is changing this fact.
We define a Founder|CEO as the following: An individual who has taken the steps to validate a concept, create and iterate on the development of a product, understand it’s target audience and take it to market. Someone who has either validated a revenue model or is working through understanding who will pay and what they’re willing to pay for your product. Someone who has taken the steps to build a team to support the process. The type of person who understands obsessively running a company and all the shit that isn’t fun, but is absolutely necessary.
If you fit the above profile, this group is for you. If you do not yet fit the above profile, we’re probably not a good fit for you (yet).
Come to this meetup for help figuring it out. Find your peers, share war stories, hacks and tips, grow your leadership muscles, and finally have a group of people to talk to who ‘get it’ rather than who have to be taught why that wicked-hard problem you are working on is …. wicked-hard.
This is not a leads or networking group. No vendors, no aspirational founders, and everyone has the super minor commitment to bring a healthy open mindset to the table.
