No MLM Policy

East Bay Entrepreneur produces and promotes upcoming San Francisco East Bay Networking, Social Mixers and Business events. Our primary focus is on creating environments for people to make new business and personal connections, build their network, find new clients, and identify business opportunities. That being said, East Bay Entrepreneur does not allow promoting, advertising, selling, or mentioning an MLM, (also known as multi-level or network marketing company) on our group site or at our events.

We define Multi-level Marketing (MLM) broadly as any business that recruits distributors, resellers, consultants, or others for the sale or representation of a product or service that does not originate from the person wishing to become a member of East Bay Entrepreneur. This includes matrix marketing, network marketing, and direct sales companies, in addition to "Get Rich Quick" businesses or business opportunities that require applicants to pay to apply, pay for training, or pay for samples.

The nature of any multi-level marketing (MLM) business is to compensate its distributors based on product sales they personally generate as well as the sales of other distributors whom they have introduced to the company ("downline"). A distributor's success depends upon developing an ever-expanding network of people who join the business. MLM sales, in addition to "Get Rich Quick" opportunities, tend to draw focus from independent business networking toward selling secondary business opportunities. At East Bay Entrepreneur, we are not comfortable having our members solicited or propositioned to join or add another business. Rather, we encourage and support businesses for which our members are the sole representatives or owners of the products or services being offered. If your primary business is in any way associated with a MLM company, then East Bay Entrepreneur may not be the right fit for you.

East Bay Entrepreneur is the perfect networking group for San Francisco East Bay professionals who want to make new business and personal connections, build their network, find new clients, and identify business opportunities. We look forward to seeing you at an event!

Thank you for your understanding,

The East Bay Entrepreneur Team
