The Founding Members of our community represent some of the UK’s most experienced PE backed leaders. They’ve navigated the highs and lows of the private equity journey and can provide invaluable signposts to the potholes that lie ahead.
PEPTalks operates the largest community of PE backed CEOs in the UK. CEOs pay a monthly fee to be a member of this community and access the collective wisdom within.
Empowered by the knowledge of the PEPTalks community, our members deliver better returns for their investors, themselves and their teams.
