Trusted Advisors to Senior IT Executives

How it works

  • We utilize our network of over 350 volunteer experts to research the marketplace. We have teams of experts in Silicon Valley, the Boston/DC corridor, Research Triangle, and other incubators of emerging technology.
  • We have developed an AI-based system that automatically matches your business imperatives to a range of exceptional new solutions.
  • Matches are vetted and approved by our team of former global CIOs.
  • Once a match is made, an appointment is arranged between you and that product company for a succinct briefing.
  • That session can be in-person or by phone; with you and/or one or more of your direct reports.
  • The vendor pays a fee for each session, and 100% of the net proceeds go to fund three deserving charities – SIM, WITI and Year-Up.
  • So all you are committing to is a free briefing of 30-60 mins. at your convenience, around once per month, until you choose to stop.
