We are a coveted, invite-only network of 1,100+ CEOs of high growth, tech startups. It's support for leaders of companies from seed stage to exit. These are your people.
A few reasons why CEOs join Mindshare:
Access to a vibrant online CEO community + daily email + quarterly newsletter
Get access to recognized thought leaders via our Alumni, speakers & board.
Members constantly tell us how this group saves them critical time & resources.
Get quality, actionable, real-world mentorship and tips from other CEOs.
All new members attend live events with 50+ CEOs. Helping foster real relationships.
After the first year, you're an Alumni for life. There are no additional annual fees.
We get it. Being a CEO is a lonely and challenging job. You tackle countless obstacles and demanding choices…daily.
Imagine the time you’d save and the connection you’d gain, if you had access to over 1,000 CEOs who’ve faced similar issues?
Mindshare isn’t a club. It’s a network and FORCE MULTIPLIER. Leveraging connections, experience, and heart… so you can move faster, stay sane, and build a company that thrives.
We’ve created a highly engaged, proactive network of CEOs. Our Alumni Network, Program speakers & Board include renowned thought leaders and advisors.
Creating a CEO hub with thriving peer-to-peer mentorship is how we tackle our mission:
To help tech CEOs launch their companies into the stratosphere by fostering innovation, collaboration, and mentorship across the DC startup ecosystem.
Mindshare is designed for CEOs who want to grow their company smarter, faster.
For 27 years our invitation-only network has brought together CEOs from the most promising, high growth technology companies across the DC region.
Today, we have over 1,100 Alumni. Currently we select only 50-60 new members a year to join our Program and Alumni Network.
Usually the 3rd Thursday of the month!
Being a part of Mindshare was potentially the single most efficient and effective thing I did when growing my business. I was initially reluctant to accept the invitation to join. I didn't have time, or so I thought. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Time and knowledge was what I gained back in spades."
For all new Mindshare Alumni, I can tell you this community truly matters. It's not only a vehicle to grow your business, but it's there for you both personally and professionally. Having Mindshare fellows to talk about your darkest moments and share your proudest makes the journey so much better.
The best part of Mindshare is the high quality, like-minded entrepreneurs that it brings together for support, networking and social activities. Through the group, I’ve come to make great friends, advisors and an extended family which I support and can also rely on for professional assistance.
“Consistently one of the best places to identify promising new companies and hear the latest from-the-front sagas.”
