Matching people with ideas, contacts, skills & assets to help start and expand businesses. The group was partly inspired from listening to the frustrations of small business owners trying to get to the next stage of their development. Also inspired by an article I read called “Time to get connected for the freelance future” which talks about an Argentinean government initiative which matched young entrepreneurs with recently unemployed experienced people to help develop their business further. The aim of the group is to match members who can form mutually beneficial partnerships. We have two broad segments we’d like to help, start-ups and small businesses. For start-ups we’d like to be a resource to find people to join your company. For example, say if you’ve an accounting background but are trying to develop an idea for software which would be beneficial to your clients. You could attend our meetings and network with software developers looking to start their own company. For existing small business we’d like to create referral groups. These are groups of members with the same target client but are not in competition with each other. Eg Accountant, Web developer, Graphic Designer, Content writer etc. could form their own referral group. Once happy with the level of service of each member, they could begin passing recommendations to each other. Increasing revenue and reducing marketing costs.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
