About the CEO School Program

Our four and 12 month financial education and business growth programs for startups assist world-class founders to become successful CEOs and bridges the gap between traditional accelerator programs and a Series A funding round. As you transition from startup to scaleup, your role changes from ‘Chief Everything Officer’ to Chief Executive Officer. This program helps you master the skills and tools required to manage your financials, sales and marketing, HR, business operations, and global expansion to ensure you meet your growth plans.
