The Community for Impact

The Real Leaders Impact Collaborative is a leadership network that unites impact-oriented, growth-minded CEOs to grow their connections, capital sources, visibility, and business.

Why Real Leaders

Building your own CEO network is hard. Finding real CEOs who give a damn and care about your business is even harder.

Whether it’s determining the right growth strategy, finding the right impact investor, or detaching from your business, the responsibilities of a CEO like you are unique, time-consuming, and complex.Ā 

That’s why we designed the Real Leaders Impact Collaborative to create “the best meeting of your month” with values-aligned CEOs who share from experience.

As a Certified B-Corporation leadership platform, Real LeadersĀ® understands what it takes to lead an impact business. That’s why 100+ Impact Award winning CEOs have entrusted us to increase their capital sources, leads, and credibility through our community, magazine, and Top 100 U.S. Business News podcast.

For this month only Real Leaders is giving a complementary podcast interview to any member who signs up before 12/31/22.

Simply email to get in touch today.
