Leap 100 Power Breakfasts
Leap 100 Power Breakfasts are small, informal affairs. We restrict them to around 18 people – mostly the founders of Leap 100 companies. Our principal guest kicks off with roughly 10 minutes of introductory remarks; a light breakfast is served; and ideas and experiences are exchanged.
