The Supper Club is a membership community of entrepreneurial founders and CEOs of high-growth businesses. Since 2003 it has enabled members to scale their businesses through peer learning, facilitated networking and access to subject matter experts and inspirational speakers.

Supper Club membership provides access to the collective experience, knowledge and support of its Founder community. This peer to peer insight enables Founders to make timely and informed decisions and overcome challenges faster.

During 2021 the organisation further developed its digital offering with a focus on crowdsourcing advice from other founders, curated introductions and subject specific learning covering common challenges for founders. Evolution of the digital component has increased the geographic diversity of the membership across the UK, Europe and the US.

The Supper Club has also reintroduced in-person events with an emphasis on the themes of shared experience and inspiration with the ambition that this will help form new long-lasting relationships.

Members have shown an increasing interest in legacy and impact reflecting wider trends in society during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Supper Club has formed a special interest group for those looking to pursue B Corp status and interested in business as a force for good.
