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.
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.
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.
