ABOUT THE AWARD:
CEO Nexus, in collaboration with the Center for Advanced Entrepreneurship at Rollins College, Florida High Tech Corridor Council and GrowFL, brings together leaders of established growth-oriented businesses in a confidential setting to meet and learn from CEO peers who have grown their companies into more advanced stages of business development. The CEO Nexus Cup is a traveling trophy and member-recognition award, recognizing those companies that have achieved growth and entrepreneurial success, in part due to their collaboration with CEO Nexus.
