Bringing Together C-Suite Tech Leaders in North America

Launch has been hosting exclusive events for the past 10+ years, promoting connections within the startup ecosystem, for companies of all stages and sizes. We’ve made our core focus to ignite meaningful conversations and relationships between founders, both locally and cross-border, that will last for years to come.

Each year we host a series of CxO Dinners in different cities bringing together anywhere from 20-150 fast-growing company (seed, A) founders along with a few investors for an evening of peer-to-peer learning and networking.

Past CxO dinners have been held in Vancouver, San Francisco, Seattle, Mexico City, and Dubai.
