Supporting Local Resources

A Business Community Curated for CEOs by CEOs

What is CEO Curator?
We are a community of vetted c-suite professionals who are proven experts at what we do. We come together to network, educate and support each other’s businesses in a no pressure environment.

Does everyone have to work together?
While we are under no obligation to work together, if we can, we choose to support local businesses who have passed CEO Curator’s rigorous vetting process. Many companies in the network offer pricing discounts for CEO Curator members. However, we do not prevent you from joining other groups or working with outside referral partners.

Do I have to be a CEO?
Not by title, but you do have to think and act like one: You are in charge of a P&L, with people who work for you that you can hire and fire, and you wouldn’t say “let me check with my boss” when making business decisions.

Targeted Networking Connections

Events for Every Schedule and Preference

What are the member-only events?
We have several different member events, and our goal is to have one every month. Everyone loves the afternoon happy hour, but we will also do lunch-and-learns with our members as the featured speakers. For networking, we do morning Meet-and-Match events, which is a little like speed dating for business in that members who can help each other are paired up, so you are not walking into a huge room hoping to bump into the right person. Finally, we host quarterly volunteer days at a local charity, so we can get to know each other while helping our community.

Do I have to attend mandatory meetings?
No. CEO Curator is a resource to draw on when you are ready. The whole purpose of creating a pool of vetting resources is to allow you to be more efficient and achieve your goals faster. You can come to the events, peruse the directory, or meet with the vetted partners only if and when you are ready. It is like having a community of peers without the time obligation.

How does membership work?
Everyone who passes the vetting process is charged a low monthly subscription. Membership renews annually and dues cover the cost of the events, and allow members access to the online directory.

What’s included the marketing feedback report?
While we are checking your five references, we also do a complete an online review to see how you show up in the market. We make note of any negative reviews, website typos, broken links, or anything else that might seem unprofessional to an outside pair of eyes. We compile our findings with the results of your reference interviews into a written report, so you get a 360 view for a very low out of pocket cost.

Vetted Proven Professionals

Our Network Saves Time, Money and Risk

What is the vetting process?
CEO Curator charges an up front fee to cover the cost of the vetting process. To apply, you have to be a business owner or c-suite professional who can provide five c-suite level decision makers who are willing to vouch for you. They can’t just be people you know, but people who are in charge of their own P&L and have paid for your company’s expertise.

What are the advantages of being in the directory?
Many members choose to pay an additional setup fee to be listed in our online directory. We create a profile page that only members can see, highlighting why you are great at what you do. We obtain permission to post testimonials from your references, which you are free to use in your own marketing as a third party verification, or in place of having to provide customer references.  Directory members are highlighted in our social media posts and ads. They are eligible to be the featured speakers at our lunch-and-learns, meaning that they present educational material to both our members and their own qualified guests, while we handle the logistical burden of planning these events.
