For Software/Technology CEOs Only
Take Your Company to the Next Level with CEN
You Don’t Have To Do It Alone
Benefit from the insights of other Software and Technology CEOs who have been down a similar path.
Software CEOs face a unique set of issues: navigating the move to Apps, mobile and cloud platforms, attracting and keeping scarce technical talent, leveraging social media to drive sales growth, SaaS vs. traditional pricing models, product upgrade strategies and more. Not many people understand these issues and their tradeoffs, including CEOs in other industries.
But there is one place you can turn for insightful, honest and unbiased insight, ideas and advice: the CEOs of similar-sized, non-competitive software companies.
In our expert-facilitated software company CEO peer groups, Chief Executive Network (CEN) members benefit from the experience and best practices of high-performing peers. It’s wisdom that is simply unavailable elsewhere.

Proven ROI: Don’t Take Our Word for It

“When another CEO was discussing his bank line of credit, I discovered that I was paying 75 basis points more than the lowest rates (3/4 of 1% per year). The other CEOs gave me the names of their bankers who lend to our sector and offered to make introductions. When I went back to my bank and said I was going to be leaving and why — my local bank cut my interest rate by a whole point to retain my business. This was worth over $300,000 per year — over $2 million during the life of the loan.”
