The Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs

CEO Roundtable

The premier group for leading entrepreneurs.

The Oxford Center for Entrepreneurs is an independent organization that brings together second stage and high growth entrepreneurs interested in accelerating their growth. With over 90% of our members being CEOs or business owners, The Oxford Center offers unrivaled opportunities to build and enhance relationships with other leaders and entrepreneurs. Members learn rapidly through the shared failures and successes of others, driving them to make better business decisions and improve business performance.

Our Symposiums have featured distinguished speakers that have grown companies to billions of dollars in revenues, while our Roundtable events provide education on current business issues as well as forums for members to share their insights and push each other’s thinking forward. The Oxford Center equips members with best practices that have been battle-tested and proven effective by their fellow Oxford Center Entrepreneurs, and assures that they make Commerce Connections that can help drive their own growth as well as their companies’ success.

The Oxford Center has partnered with Brenau to provide Oxford MBA program participants exclusive access to this group. You can further explore the mission and history of the Oxford Center through the short videos below.
