"Admittedly, I was skeptical at first. Having a consistent and dedicated meeting each month with CEOs of such different backgrounds and experiences has given me insights and support to work through my day-to-day challenges. As a first time founder, OTR gave me a peer group that was open and helpful, exposed me to how others run their companies, and provided actionable tools to implement quickly."

Founder & Chairman, Off The Record

We knew something was going on with one of our founders, but they weren't sharing all the details. I asked other VCs if they ever experienced the same situation and realized none of us could help. We started Off The Record so our founders had somewhere to go for honest, unbiased support. 


We have answers.
