The Circle is a collective of peers who endeavor to serve as one another's "personal board of directors".

The collective is comprised of those whose common cause is the building of today's #breakawaygrowth companies (a group far broader than the few we've invested in). Peers whose shared experience is a continuously swirling concoction of life-changing conquests and gut-wrenching mishaps and soul-crushing setbacks. Peers who possess two essential qualities as leaders--the grit to persevere and someone with scar tissue to turn to. 

Grit is hard coded into your DNA. Someone with scar tissue is where The Circle comes in. This is a place for conversation -- real conversation. There's no posting, commenting, threading, meming, tweeting, pinning, poking, snapping or any other digital form of "-ing" going on here. Under a cone of silence, you'll sit face-to-face and elbow-to-elbow with those who are operating companies at your same size and speed.

The format? A kitchen table, of course. The topics? Your most pressing matters. The discussion? Facilitated by fellow Circle members. The tone? Unabashedly messy and imperfect. The outcome? The realization that you're far from alone and the ability to see around corners so you know what's coming at you.
