• Select Business Network

    Networking As It Should Be

  • About

    Successful businesses don’t become successful by themselves. It takes a strong brand, energy in marketing/sales, and contributions from within the community. That’s where Selected Business Network (SBN) comes in.

    Fostering Relationships

    We are a networking group that was formed to promote a more successful method of networking for entrepreneurs. We meet weekly in Gainesville, Virginia, to discuss business, highlight our members’ services and talents, educate one another, share leads and lend support. By fostering relationships, we help build each others’ businesses.

    Giving Back

    Successful businesses realize that giving back to the community is also a rewarding benefit. SBN promotes this by encouraging philanthropy within the group. By giving money, time or energy to community needs, SBN feels that the membership can also feel reward outside of business sales.

  • Meetings

    We meet on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. at:


    Out of the Blue Crabs and Seafood

    5005 Wellington Rd, Gainesville, VA 20155
