The foremost growth and networking organization for business owners and leaders.
Benefits of Membership
If accepted, you can look forward to a suite of benefits designed to help you grow your business.
Get published on Forbes.com
Members are selected for the Council based on their depth and diversity of experience, then invited to share their insights via CommunityVoice on Forbes.com. Write business articles or submit brief industry-related tips when you’re short on time. Our in-house editorial team will guide you through a professional editing process to ensure your content meets the Forbes.com criteria and is primed for audience engagement.
Get a Forbes Executive Profile
Add to your visibility and credibility with your own Executive Profile page on Forbes.com. Your custom page ranks high in search results for your name and includes your executive and company bios; your areas of expertise and skills; and links to your social profile and website, so visitors can connect with you directly.
Leadership and Revenue Growth
Access support as needed with on-demand content created exclusively for members. Dig in deeper with one-on-one executive and business coaching opportunities. For an additional cost, get matched with a certified coach on our team who will personally guide your company to reach vital business milestones.
Attend exclusive events and experiences
Our expert events team plans gatherings for members of Forbes Business Council and VIP guests. At these events, members have the opportunity to strengthen existing connections and build new ones. We also provide access to exclusive art, charity, fashion, sports, film, and music experiences.
Prestige of association with the Forbes brand
Membership in Forbes Business Council is based on an application and committee review. Business leaders who receive an invitation to join have proven themselves a step above the competition. Members can showcase that accomplishment to customers, partners, and peers with Forbes branded press releases, digital badges, and custom awards.
Build your community of support
Join a bright and generous community of business leaders. Unlike other professional groups, we select members who are interested in giving as much as they get. In our online forum and at our exclusive events, members pose questions and get fast, smart answers. They openly share opportunities and collaborate on new partnerships or ideas. This community of support will quickly become one of your most valuable business assets.
Allow our concierges to help
Business leaders have to wear many hats. A helping hand (or two) can go far in helping you succeed. That’s where our concierge team comes in — consider them members of your own team. Email, chat, or call them anytime to find answers, get introductions, ask for resources, and more.
Access to members-only rates and partnerships
Get exclusive access to discounts on the products and services you need to run your business, including technology, travel, HR benefits, and more. Find savings on a vendor you already use, or request that a concierge connect you with provider options and prices.
Access your benefits on the go
All of these benefits and more are available from web- and mobile-optimized dashboards. Log in to find a searchable directory of fellow members, a marketplace of partner deals, writing guidance, free educational resources, events calendars, and more. Plus, chat our concierge team right from the dashboard anytime you have a question.
