Our mission is to provide leaders with a safe place to work through their most critical issues and opportunities with the only people who understand their world - other execs.
Our pods are comprised of 8-12 member peer groups for CEOs, CTOs and other startup executives. The groups are professionally moderated and meet monthly. We are careful to assemble groups of highly complementary and non-competitive members so that participants can work on growing their businesses and addressing their most challenging business issues in a safe environment.
Venwise members have access to a number of exclusive member only events and opportunities. A year long calendar of engagements provide members access to chapter-wide speaking events, one-on-one's, social gatherings and corporate resources only available to Venwise members.
Our members collectively represent a robust network spanning geographical borders into startup communities, pools of capital and customers. Members help each other succeed and our leadership can help you tap into this opportunity.
Wiley Cerilli, CEO SinglePlatform

"As a CEO you face different types challenges when growing your business from a few people to a scalable organization. There are a lot of ups, and usually more downs, so having a group of CEOs that you trust who have been through it before, or are going through it when you are, is incredibly helpful. Venwise has done a great job creating a group of CEO's that I trust, look up to, and rely on."
Sean MacIsaac, CTO Yext
"I find my monthly Venwise CTO meeting very helpful for both my day to day work and long term strategic planning. Our conversations range from human issues around process, culture, and personnel, to very technical issues around architecture, tools, and platforms. Working with a group of peers facing similar problems has been immensely useful."

Oren Harnevo, CEO EyeView Digital
"Venwise’s CEO group is the most productive and inspiring meeting I have all month. There’s always room to improve and be a better CEO. Engaging in collaborative discussions with my peers has helped me make my business stronger and form friendships with the influencers of the next generation."
Neil Capel, CEO SailThru
"Building a business from the ground up requires a great deal of attention and an open mind.

Venwise's unparalleled access to CEOs of high growth companies and industry veterans provided me with a resource that I wouldn't want to be without."
