Founded in 1986 and based in Indianapolis, CEO-NET is a unique organization powered by chief executives of Indiana companies in the $5 million to $200 million range.

  • Exchange ideas and viewpoints in a confidential forum with your peers.

  • Better understand and utilize the capabilities of your own management team.
  • Expand your contact base and tap into new suppliers and customers.

The CEO-NET is a powerful interactive one-on-one network of people who are more than willing to share their personal business experiences with fellow company presidents. By becoming a member of this group, you will have access to some of the most valuable business information available anywhere, and, provided you are willing to reciprocate, at no cost.
