The BusiWomen meet and greet is a fabulous opportunity to get to know other like-minded entrepreneurs. We take pride having developed a meeting that brings education, networking, business information and enjoyment together!

Welcome to a refreshing way for Women Entrepreneurs to Network and build a Thriving Business Community.

BusiWomen was created in 2007 by Karen Baring (, as a means for women entrepreneurs to network and develop their businesses.

We are dedicated to the development of women entrepreneurs. What started as an intimate environment has blossomed into an energetic, welcoming, bustling community with mastermind groups, highly acclaimed meet and greets and networking, friendships and shared laughter. We wanted to develop a place where women entrepreneurs, no matter how long they have been in business, feel a sense of community. When you can create an environment where positive energy and business development go hand-and-hand, than business success and well as true friendships are sure to ensue.

Our priority is business and business development. We like to say, 'We are not a group of friends who happen to have businesses, but rather we are a group of women entrepreneurs who then become friends'.

We believe the more relationships you build, the more able you are to increase your referral network, build your reputation and improve the quality and quantity of your client base.

There are two types of groups within BusiWomen. Our Mastermind groups are for the more serious networker who is looking to establish true long term connections and utilize ( for more details). Our meet up group is a free group to join and is a great way to connect with others.

Business networking can benefit all women entrepreneurs. If you're looking to grow your business where you develop your marketing, network, elevator speech, presentation skills and confidence, while you make friends, then this is the right group for you!!

Please feel free to sign up for our newsletter as it's our primary source of communication (I promise it's usually only monthly and it's always business pertinent). Because our newsletter is our primary source of communication, and many of our events have limited spacing, it's a great way to access the information a little earlier. Please go to if you would like to be a part of our newsletter.

I look forward to staying connected!
