Results occur on-the-fly at each virtual roundtable session for those who might not have access to nearby in-person roundtables. The program lead from your organization may attend as an observer and provide on-the-ground resources for the group.

We work closely with you to offer virtual roundtables with your organization’s goals in mind. You are also able to brand the virtual roundtable as you wish. You’ll be involved in the planning process and kept up to date along the way.

For leaders of second-stage companies

Conducted as a video conferences, the sessions give you the flexibility to join at the office, home or while traveling. Guidelines are shared to ensure you’re in a private space that’s conducive to confidentiality among your peers.

The virtual roundtables use the PeerSpectives protocol, which make for productive and balanced discussions. Your group is led by a trained facilitator, whose goal is to create a safe environment for members to process emotionally charged issues in confidence among peers.
