Grow your business & make life long connections

The first city wide business network in Sunderland aimed at assisting and supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs in their efforts to start up business, establish trading relationships, interact with like-minded individuals and communicate with local business leaders and ultimately contribute to the local economy. We run networking events every month at amazing venues around the city.

Sunderland Business Network was developed through a partnership with Sunderland City Council, The North East Business & Innovation Centre and Sunderland University.

The network is run by a small committee of volunteer members who are passionate about the benefits of networking and encouraging businesses in Sunderland and the surrounding areas to work together and prosper.
