Small and medium sized businesses are constantly seeking cost effective ways to elevate their company profile and generate new business. Since 2013, membership in Business Referral Network 2.0 (BRN 2.0) has provided like-minded Chicago Southland business owners with an excellent source of qualified business leads and referrals to help them get more customers and grow their businesses.
Unlike area chambers and other networking groups, BRN 2.0 holds highly structured weekly meetings which enable business owners to exchange leads, present “commercials” about their businesses, and learn from each other.
BRN 2.0 restricts membership to one person from each profession, specialty or industry. This prevents members from competing against each other for business. Prospective members are encouraged to contact us to see if their profession is represented.
BRN 2.0 is a local networking organization. We are not part of a national referral group. Since most of our member businesses are located in the Chicago Southland, we understand the unique business climate that exists in the south and southwest suburbs. And, because BRN 2.0 is a not-for-profit organization, it COSTS LESS to be a part of BRN 2.0 than the national referral groups.
BRN 2.0 also seeks to promote the welfare of our community by donating money to worthy causes. In past years, donations were made to organizations such as the Bridge Teen Center (Orland Park), Camp Manitoqua (Frankfort), Cancer Support Center (Mokena), P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park and others.
