Focus

A Community for Growth-­Driven Business Leaders

Business owners and chief executives in the business­‐to­‐business (B2B) marketplace face significant challenges as they seek to drive growth, and they require resources uniquely tailored to address their growth objectives.

Introducing the B2B Growth Forum, a new community specifically designed to meet the needs of this executive population. The B2B Growth Forum is designed to serve the needs of CEOs who lead companies meeting the following criteria:

  • An established, privately held business.
  • Operate in the business-­to­‐business (B2B) market, including firms
    in the technology, professional services and industrial segments.
  • Currently in an emerging or lower middle­‐market growth phase (typically
    $5M to $150M in annual revenues), or a funded startup.
  • Intend to invest significantly in growth and expansion over the next 3‐5
    years.
  • Located or headquartered in the Northeast Corridor region.

The B2B Growth Forum brings together business leaders and subject-matter experts, allowing them to share ideas, identify best practices, develop new relationships and learn from one another as partners on the growth journey.
