The Chicago Business Development Forum brings together small businesses, entrepreneurs and start-ups to help each other with business development by sharing unique expertise, experience, and encouragement in an inspiring and collaborative environment:

  • Business strategizing - using your valuable time wisely
  • Networking - Growing win-win relationships
  • Marketing - Getting the word out about your value in a big way
  • Sales - Establish value to people in such a way that they want to hire you immediately
  • Management and leadership - Creating better employees, partners and clients by setting a rock-solid foundation from the start
  • Growing your business into something special!

Businesses and individuals that become active with this Meetup have the opportunity to assist each other with challenges leading to more success for everyone. We hold monthly meetings that focus on learning and creating action plans to move forward with our own business goals.

This group focuses on meetings and events that are high-quality and offer a ton of value in helping your grow your business - from creating the overall vision, direction and strategy to executing specifically tailored networking, marketing and sales skills and strategies.

Please USE the Message Board to ASK QUESTIONS, POST FREE EVENTS and INTRODUCE YOURSELF and your business in a FRIENDLY, HELPFUL way. If you SPAM the Message Board (especially from outside Chicagoland), YOU WILL BE REMOVED AND BANNED FROM THE GROUP.

See you inside!
