CEO Squad requires the collaboration of many individuals, institutions and businesses to achieve its mission and vision.
Members & Associates
Members are skilled professionals that hold senior positions within a company or division and are directly responsible for strategy or operations of the business or division. They alternatively hold MBAs or equivalent Business Management Degrees, and have a willingness to scale SME’s in South Africa for the betterment of local communities. Members can choose to be Associates and provide Advisory and Consulting Services to SME clients.
Endorsers are institutions, professional bodies, NGOs/NPOs and industry leaders with influence that have a direct or indirect goal to see the growth of SME and the South African economy. These parties back the CEO Squad and the clients to stimulate faster growth.
Service Providers are specialist small businesses, corporates, consultants and contractors that provide services to SME clients beyond the scope of the CEO Squad. CEO Squad links clients to service providers, with preferential rates negotiated by the CEO Squad.
With the target market of CEO Squad in the SME sector, these small business or individuals cannot afford corporate advisory rates. Sponsors are thus required to bridge the gap between the rate the SME can afford and the already discounted rate of CEO Squad Associates.
