enrich is a private network for knowledge sharing amongst professionals. Currently, enrich provides C-suite and senior leaders across companies a platform to share best practices and insider tips on how to best grow their companies to scale. Members are matched based on similar functions into small groups (6-8) for IRL or offline guided discussions on topics that range from marketing to product design to how to best manage remote teams. It's kind of like a YPO for everyone else.
