CEO VBEC (Venture-Backed Executive Club) Town Hall Meeting is a neutral forum for CEOs in venture-backed companies to meet, share perspectives, learn from each other and develop joint business opportunities.

- The CEO Town Hall Meeting will bring together CEOs from venture-backed companies to network, raise common issues and meet informally

- At the beginning of each session, the attendees will introduce themselves so that they all can identify possible company synergies to be explored informally later on

- During the town hall, the Discussion Leader will serve as the focal point for questions and issues raised by the attendees and will create a top ten style list of issues and themes faced by CEOs, with the goal of fostering audience give and take

The emphasis will be on maximum networking and informal time with just enough structure to facilitate improved networking.
