Q: WHO CAN APPLY TO THE CEO ROUNDTABLES?
A: All currently-serving CEOs or equivalents (anyone with overall management responsibility of the company, such as a Managing Partner or Owner), and participation may not be delegated. Regrettably, this excludes COO, CRO, CMO, CTO, etc., as well as division general managers and similar. We may offer other future Roundtables for these executives.
Q: WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA FOR ADMITTANCE?
A: When we evaluate your company profile, we use many different criteria. The focus is mostly on the company more than the CEO, since many of the CEOs who apply are highly qualified.
Q: IS THERE A COST FOR THE CEO ROUNDTABLES?
A: No, there is no cost to complete the survey or to participate in a CEO Roundtable. AFN Membership fees and other details are here.
Q: HOW DO I APPLY TO PARTICIPATE?
A: Simply complete the company profile.
Q: WE'RE A STARTUP OR EARLY-STAGE COMPANY WITH LITTLE OR NO REVENUE. DO WE QUALIFY?
Q: MAY I JOIN THE ADVANTAGE FOUNDRY NETWORK (AFN) BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN A CEO ROUNDTABLE?
A: Very possibly. We have CEOs of companies from pre-revenue to $1 billion+. Simply complete the company profile.
A: Certainly. Just complete the company profile and send us an email telling us you wish to subscribe.
Q: WHAT IS THE DATE OF THE CEO ROUNDTABLE?
Q: WHO WILL BE THE OTHER CEOs IN MY CEO ROUNDTABLES?
A: There are many CEO Roundtables scheduled on a continuous rolling basis. The right one for you is based on your company's profile and your schedule.
A: We can’t determine that until you complete the survey, are admitted, and select which CEO Roundtable fits your schedule. Because of this, the list of participants is often unknown until the day before the CEO Roundtable.
Q: WHAT TOPICS WILL BE DISCUSSED?
A: The theme of the CEO Roundtables is growth and the specific topics vary from session to session based on the interests and needs of that Roundtable's CEOs as described in their company profile and spontaneously during the conversation.
Q: I'M NOT IN THE US. CAN I PARTICIPATE?
A: Absolutely! The AFN includes CEOs from 90+ different countries, and the CEO Roundtables are held at various times to accommodate virtually everyone.
Q: WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ADAVANTAGE FOUNDRY NETWORK (AFN)?
A: Just visit the AFN Membership page.
Q: WHAT INDUSTRY SECTORS ARE COVERED? IS THIS LIMITED TO TECH COMPANIES?
A: The AFN includes dozens of industry sectors.
Q: MAY I WATCH ANY PAST CEO ROUNDTABLES?
A: Yes. Some early CEO Roundtables were recorded, and you may watch them here.
Q: ARE THE CEO ROUNDTABLES RECORDED?
A: Yes. We use the recording to produce a report and amazing visualization of the conversation - strictly for the private use of the CEO participants.
Q: ARE THE CEO ROUNDTABLES PRIVATE?
A: Yes, unless by unanimous consent of all participants. The CEO Roundtables are private conversations amongst a group of individuals with no audience and as such there is no public promotion or sharing of them.
Q: ARE THE CEO ROUNDTABLES VIRTUAL?
A: Yes. All of the CEO Roundtables are held using the Zoom platform.
Q: CAN A PARTICIPANT JOIN IN A ROUNDTABLE WITH A PARTICULAR CATEGORY OF CEOs?
Q: ARE CEO ROUNDTABLES
A ONE-OFF EVENT OR A SERIES OF SESSIONS?
A: CEO in Roundtables are grouped by stage/revenues. We find that CEOs of companies of similar size face similar challenges and can benefit each other. We don't currently group by any other criteria.
A: Each CEO Roundtable is a unique event. However, some topical Roundtables, available to CEOs that have already done at least one previous Roundtable, are multi-session.
Q: I'VE BEEN INVITED TO PARTICIPATE BUT CAN'T FIT IT IN NOW. CAN I STILL JOIN IN LATER?
Q: CAN CO-CEOs BOTH PARTICIPATE IN THE SAME ROUNDTABLE?
A: Absolutely. Just let us know when you'll be available and we'll get you scheduled for a future CEO Roundtable.
A: Yes. Just let us know that you are co-CEOs and want to participate together.
