Whilst we recognise that we're here to build our business and we're all nice people, please note that this is not a group that condones spam nor hunters that are only in it for the money.

I started this group to create a community of entrepreneurs and small business owners who are looking for ways to grow their business.

We want to help small businesses learn more about ways to build and market their business, nurture mutually-beneficial relationships, and generate greater sales and results through partnerships and referrals.

Join our group on Whatsapp (https://chat.whatsapp.com/Bf0iGo3mX0f07XK4pbhnnl) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/bds.sgp/)to connect with more entrepreneurs and business owners.

If you believe in building relationships for long-term growth, register for our flagship Business Connections Over Coffee networking event now!

[HOUSE RULES]

RULE #1 - Respect All

The BDS Meetup group welcomes any aspiring and/or current entrepreneurs.

We are people here to build our business and relationships; not walking wallets for you to poach.

RULE #2 - Give Before Receiving; Fruitfulness will Follow

Everybody is interested in their own business, yet are surprised when others aren’t when they can’t stop talking about it.

We can be more interesting by showing sincere interest in other people’s interest – so come for to our events with an intent to learn about others and build authentic connections, and not merely to sell or promote your business only.

When trust is established, transactions will follow.

RULE #3 - Manners Matter

The organizers and our partners take time out to plan, develop and execute the event.

Whilst we understand that plans may change, we ask that members who've committed to attending an event, or who've RSVP-ed to attend an event would follow through with their commitment to attend the event as committed or reflect your latest RSVP status with a clear yes/no.

In the event that you're unable to make it for an event after RSVP-ing with a yes, the polite and right thing to do would be to update it with a "No".

Last-minute changes or "No-Shows" may see members removed from the group and banned from attending subsequent events.
