The CEO Project is for execs at members of the Inc. 5000 list (companies that have reached a benchmark revenue), who wish to connect with similar-tier innovators. Customer acquisition was easy, considering the massive audience Inc. has built from its print and digital properties.  Wendy Bounds, VP and chief content officer at Consumer Reports, a non-profit, said you have to offer something viable and specific. “The key to revenue is repackaging and retooling the content you have so that it is infinite to people—retool what you have to save people time,” she said.  Leaders at Patch, The Daily Beast and Popular Science, other brands that joined the panel, agreed that building affinity with an audience through content is the driver.
