The Founders' Assembly
A Peer-to-Peer Leadership Forum to Accelerate Your Business

The Founders' Assembly will provide you with the skills, experience and network to transform from a worker in your business to a leader of your business.  

10 founders, presidents and CEOs will meet for twelve sessions over the course of 5 months to tackle their company's biggest challenges. Sessions are held virtually and in-person, and participants have the opportunity to receive one-on-one leadership coaching. 

Topics covered: 

  • Establishing a learning culture 
  • Elevating your peoples' performance 
  • Growing your leadership toolkit 
  • Recruiting and hiring top talent 
  • Motivating and engaging your team 
  • Handling leadership conflicts 

IHCC is partnering with Raise the Bar, a firm focused on helping companies retain their talent by building better leaders of people. Aaron Levy, Founder & CEO of Raise the Bar will serve as the primary coach and facilitator of The Founders' Assembly. 

Who should apply?
Founders, presidents or CEOs looking to take their business to a whole new level, overcome their biggest leadership obstacles and develop an influential network of peers. Your company should be in the revenue-generating stage with at least 4 employees and you should be willing to commit 2-3 hours per month for Founders' Assembly activities.

Participation in the Founders' Assembly is $5000, but with the generous support of our sponsors, businesses are only asked to cover $1000 to participate. Non-profit rates apply for qualified organizations.
