As a member of Inc. CEO Project, you join the highest caliber of peers, matched with the most experienced advisors, to work through a proven system of growth and achievement.
We’re not for everyone, though. Our membership is carefully curated to include highly competent CEOs with strong track records of growth in their industries. Each one is run through a selection process to make sure they are a fit.
Our members run large enterprises with revenues ranging from $20M to over $2 billion in annual revenue. They’re humble learners who are committed to continuous improvement and legacy impact. They have control over their schedule, so they can travel and meet the requirements of membership. And they come from a broad range of companies based on size, business model, and industry. In fact, business diversity is one of the unique characteristics of our approach – as many groundbreaking ideas come from lateral thinking from other industries.
We have a national membership of more than 100 CEOs who are formed into non-competitive groups of 8-10 members. At any given time, we have 10-15 peer groups in operation. Our small group size, compared to other CEO peer organizations, ensures each member receives plenty of time on the critical issues that can drive their business forward.
The total time commitment is between 64 and 92 hours per year of focus on business improvement, personal development, and camaraderie. This is 2-3% of a typical CEO’s working hours after the hour commitment. The approach also results in greater discretionary time, which aligns with our concept of being a “lazy CEO.” It’s such a beneficial membership, most CEOs stay engaged for 5+ years. Some have even been with us for more than 10 years. The most common reason someone stops participation in the CEO project is a successful financial exit.
