The Global Leaders Organization (GLO) is a professional community of business owners, CEOs and investors. Together, we improve access to the critical information our members need to grow, provide unparalleled access to commercial opportunities and unprecedented access to raise capital and invest in each other’s businesses.
Who are GLO members?
GLO members are the presidents and CEOs of companies that have reached the critical $250,000/year in revenues. The leaders or SMB/SMEs have moved beyond startup concerns and are pivoting to how to grow their businesses, as well as themselves as leaders. Conversions among peers at this level are richer and have a greater impact on positive growth
GLO members are seeking a unique community of peers and expect the opportunity for increased commerce and access to capital as a benefit of their participation. GLO members are differentiated by their desire to not only improve themselves, but are always striving to build up their communities with those they identify with.
How are GLO Communities Built?
GLO’s members, content and opportunities are organized around communities. Communities are organized around industry, demographic and impact. For example, there are Retail and Women-Owned business communities. GLO members can join as many communities as they want. This ensures that CEOs are engaged with people who know and understand their particular challenges.
GLO Marries Analogue & Digital
GLO brings all members of different communities together monthly for Chapter meetings. At Chapter meetings, local members take advantage of their membership by connecting around networking, curriculum, Lessons in Leadership presentations and special business author events. Chapter meetings are also where members from different online communities are able to meet and network with each other.
The Differentiator: Investment Portals
Through GLO’s syndicated network of sponsored, associated and affiliated investment portals, GLO members can raise debt and equity to grow their businesses. Investment Portals are open to accredited investors and qualified investors, family offices, funds and more. Investors are not required but are incentivized to become GLO members. Investors with a minimum of $1M invested in startups are provided preferred access to our communities.
A Gamified Community
Every action that a GLO member makes – from posting a discussion, promoting a product or service in the marketplace, or setting up an offer in the deal network – earns GLO Currency. This site-based currency can be used to promote discussions, marketplace offerings or pay for due diligence and marketing services in the investment portals. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, the GLO currency is backed by the real community-building activities and reputation of our members. The currency and gamification elements of the platform allow for the targeted motivation of positive impact.
