About Our Leaders

Our leaders provide each member attending their local meetups with an invaluable resource as a networking facilitator during the meeting.  Leveraging their experience within the Connect Now Business Network, as well as business networking in general, they help provide an open and accessible atmosphere for connecting with other businesses.

Our leaders are also a valuable source of insight and knowledge into the business landscape within your community, providing critical experience from their particular fields, and as business owners in general, to help inform you as an entrepreneur.  It is the varied mix of industries that these leaders come from that makes up one of the strengths of the Connect Now Business Network – while each meetup is a Connect Now meetup, it is also run with the experience and expertise of each unique leader.  Each location is truly unique, and each leader provides their own area of expertise to the table.
