What we're about
The Ottawa Business Referral Network provides small-business entrepreneurs an opportunity to network with like-minded people and grow their businesses through word-of-mouth referrals to clients, family and friends. Our group relies on business networking to generate leads within each individual's network, creating a more vast network than anyone could have on their own.
Each Ottawa BRN member carries other members’ business cards, and when a potential “prospect” is met, the business card and a testimonial is provided and a solid referral is often created. Successful business growth depends on word-of-mouth referrals and positive recommendations. BRN’s system of giving and receiving referrals creates a supportive and trusting environment for developing serious business relationships where ongoing business and personal contacts can be transformed into positive leads.
The Ottawa BRN is also a platform to market one's business at a regular weekly breakfast meeting to a group of like-minded business owners, while also helping grow the businesses of other entrepreneurs in the community. The success of the organization is solely dependent upon the mutual exchange of quality business leads, as well as the members' dedication, professionalism and commitment to the group as a whole.
The group only allows one member from any one business classification to become a member. In addition to our weekly meetings, we also host evening business mixers on a regular basis, which are open for all to attend. Meetup requests to join this group will be subject to review by our membership committee after the individual has met our core group at one of the weekly breakfast meetings.
Thank you very much for your interest in our group. For additional information, please message us through the MeetUp message center.
