The mission of the LSX Start-Up CEO Forum is to provide a unique, powerful and valuable space for the candid sharing of experience between the sector's entrepreneurs and startup, so that they can leave with new ideas that will drive their businesses forward. 

It is an invitation-only, exclusive roundtable forum where all participants are active discussants and have an equal voice. Targeting just 20-25 leading CxOs, to ensure conversation is meaningful, it follows a strict Chatham House Rule policy and includes case study peer review and a general discussion focused on brainstorming solutions to the collective challenges of CxOs in the sector. 

Taking place in a closed-door session at the LSX World Congress, the forum features:

  • 3x interactive peer review case studies of deals or advice from investors or expert advisors, presented informally moderated by experts in their fields.
  • A 45-minute focused roundtable discussion on funding, company building and partnerships for start-ups that will have actionable outcomes as its goal.
