What we're about

Updated March '22 |  👋 Hi Biz friends — while we're not back just yet w/IRL events, we're hopeful on the outlook ahead to return in the near future 🤞

Specifically optimistic that we'll be hosting IRL events in the b2b~ers community within 2022; and especially excited to be continuing our expansion of localized impact networking (more below on that).

...but adding a caveat that all of our b2b~ers community related efforts are dependent on covid-19 state/local regulations at the time of the event; and are subject to change.

So in the interim we'll be planning ahead on what and where next, then control the controllables, and adjust as needed :)

Refresher on the B2B~ers community via our first event:

...it's been a minute since then...

For me what's surfaced from 2019 to now is just how important our initial core values in the b2b~ers community have become. From supporting local businesses and innovators, to local artists, restaurants, and charities in need — all facilitated around relevant networking b2b~ers events.

Looking ahead we'll be expanding how the b2b~ers community achieves this further. In-part by offering opportunities for some of the more willing and experienced b2b~ers, who can then leverage their related skill-sets to make a real impact with local organizations who could use that help.

This type of skillset and expertise generally includes knowing how to create net-new opportunities via cold outreach, to influencing balanced partnerships. Qualifications, as many know reading here, that take years of full-time effort to effectively execute on, but are second nature to many of our members; which fortunately too our community here and at Bizzit (globally) is filled with.

Also common needs that local non-profits, charities, and related organizations can be too busy to either hire for, or know how to approach and get people with such skills, to help.

The b2b~ers community can bridge this gap.

Altogether encompassing our central theme, or north star if you will, of future b2b~ers events and values. Where we'll be inviting guest innovators and businesses launching new startups or products, while supporting the local artists and restaurants/retail. Bringing in the relevant network around the event's guest presenters (what we do from our side as the community managers) — with an aim to impact in relevance both the business (event/networking) side while, in parallel, support the people and organizations within the local community.

Simply put, impact networking: a continuation from our 2019 focus to now broaden the impact networking side within the event(s) themselves.

More to come, but until then keep at it biz friends ✌️
