The NYC Business Networking Group (NYCBNG) is one of the premier, exclusive networking groups in NYC and has been a leader in hosting business events for nearly 4 years.

In 2010, we launched our first West Coast group in LA. We're expanding to San Diego to bring our events to professionals in the local area.



Group members are the city's most influential, successful business professionals including small and medium business owners, entrepreneurs and startups...both veteran and newbie. We don't just provide one type of networking event. We give you several options each month, giving you a choice to network in the style you're most comfortable with.

We invite you to come to this group with an attitude of sharing and giving and not just taking. If you're all about the hard "sell", then this isn't the group for you. Seriously!




As President of The NYC Business Networking Group, Ilana Eberson has appeared in: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fox Business News, INC Magazine, The New York Post, New York Daily News, TimeOut New York, AM New York, Metro New York and Star-Ledger.

Over the last 3 years we has been proudly sponsored by the following companies: American Express, Microsoft, AT&T / Hewlett Packard, GE ecomagination Challenge, HP ProBook PC Powered by AMD, Regus Business Suites, Constant Contact, NY Enterprise Report, Amazon & Delivering Happiness (Zappos), Microsoft 7, NYC Business Solutions, NYC Business Express, Capital One Bank, Banco Popular, Wachovia Bank, New York Life, Kaufman Foundation of Entrepreneurship, Madison Square Garden, Kaplan Testprep, BlackBerry. Contact us if you'd like to sponsor our group.

There are many benefits to being a member of our community. We provide sponsors and members the opportunity to be part of an dynamic business community and connect with outstanding business professionals. We continue building a strong NYC entrepreneur and business community by focusing on business relationships, getting to know other members and working together to encourage a successful outcome for everyone.

Our events provide the opportunity to meet new prospects and contacts to enable you to create relationships and promote and market your business. Attendees come from a diverse range of B2B service providers to help you build your own business. As part of our community, members help generate new business relationships while discovering strategic professional business opportunities.

Details about our networking events are posted on the Group Calendar
