About Sunderland Business Network

Sunderland Business Network was officially launched in March 2008 as the first city wide business network in Sunderland with the purpose of assisting and supporting local businesses / entrepreneurs in their efforts to start-up, establish trading relationships, interact with like-minded individuals, communicate with local business leaders and ultimately prosper.

The Network has always been about offering local businesses the opportunity to come together to network at our bi-monthly meetings, with other local businessmen and women in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

Our breakfast meetings introduced in 2014, offer businesses the opportunity to come together and network on a very informal basis. Our evening meetings feature speakers from a variety of disciplines, and are designed to ensure the local business community are kept up to date with information on changes in legislation, best practice, technology as well as local developments.

Alongside our networking events Sunderland Business Network provides businesses with an opportunity to showcase themselves on our website – sunderlandbusinessnetwork.co.uk – where members can publish news items, add their details to our business directory, take advantage of advertising space, and communicate with others in forums exclusive to network members.

Although time has passed since Sunderland Business Network was founded, our aim remains to assist and support local businesses and entrepreneurs to develop and grow in a city, which itself is growing, and to make Sunderland a great place in which to do business
