BUSINESS Roundtable Groups

The Solano-Napa SBDC offers several business roundtable groups for business owners to come together, learn, share their experiences, and receive guidance and advice from their peers. We succeed together!

Is a Business Roundtable Group for You?

Solano-Napa SBDC Business Roundtables bring small business owners together on a monthly basis for an exchange of information, challenges, insights – plus expert and peer input to grow and improve. It’s like a business owners’ support group!

All groups meet monthly. Meetings are 1 to 2 hours and have a leader to help guide them.

Benefits of joining a Business Roundtable Group include:

  • Build peer community of other business owners like you
  • Become a better, more knowledgeable, business-owner
  • Have a place to validate your ideas and discuss your concerns
  • Sharpen your visionary thinking
  • Enhance your overall personal satisfaction
  • Forecast issues facing your business
  • Create an advisory council of trusted peers
  • Ultimately increase your sales & profitability

Each group is for a specific geographic location and will require requesting to join; SPACES ARE LIMITED.

Who is Eligible?

You may be a right fit for a Business Roundtable Group if:

  • Your business is located in Solano or Napa County
  • You are currently IN BUSINESS
  • You’re interested in participating in a small business community
  • You can commit to being there every month

Spaces are limited, so you must apply!

What is the Cost?

Signing up for similar groups typically can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars a year, but our groups are currently at NO COST for Solano County and Napa County businesses, thanks to other funding. However, businesses must apply to join.

What Else Should I Know?

Roundtable groups are not occasional drop-in events. If you are accepted into a group, you should plan to participate monthly to keep your place as a member.

Groups are based on business location and typically include members from diverse industries, in a confidential setting. However, by joining a roundtable group, you consent to your email and basic info being shared with other members of the group.
