The Lead Assembly

75 Hand-Selected CEOs & Founders

Returning May 21, 2021

Closed-Door, Confidential Conversations

By-Invitation Only

Peer Learning & Meeting Forum

The Lead Assembly was held virtually on January 29, 2021. A hand-selected group of more than 75 CEOs and Founders from high-growth D2C brands came together for an intimate peer-learning experience.

Each CEO and Founder shared their business challenges and learnings prior to the session. The Lead then placed attendees on nine curated roundtables for conversations on topics including — Marketing Beyond Facebook, Growth vs. Profitability, Fundraising & Financing, and Reevaluating Retail.

The session opened with a fast-paced and varied program delivering insights, highlighting recent trends, and forecasting key issues for 2021. Industry experts provided data on —

  • Holiday 2020 performance and issues
  • 2020 D2C performance in M&A, financing, and exits
  • Emerging trends and key considerations for 2021

The CEOs also benchmarked and compared current leadership priorities on financing, growth, and investment via a real-time poll. 

Built for CEOs & Founders, The Lead Assembly will return on May 21st, 2021. Apply to attend by filling out the form at the bottom of the page.
