Solano-NAPA Business Group

What is a Business Roundtable Group?

It’s a group of entrepreneurs who meet online via Zoom EVERY MONTH to work on their business. Each meeting has a Leader/Facilitator who helps plan meeting activities. The group’s success comes from member participation — so showing up monthly is ESSENTIAL!

This is not merely a ‘networking group’ — it is not about selling what you do, but improving your business. We use a ’roundtable style’ so we have time to discuss your unique business issues.

What do we do Each Month?

Work on business success! Each meeting includes:

  • Connecting with a group of like-minded business owners in your county.
  • Group discussion time to share and explore the monthly topic as it relates to your business, including discussing your business concerns.
  • We’ll cover topics of all kinds: marketing strategy, goal setting, financial improvements, using your time wisely, improving your website, building customer loyalty — and much more. Most meetings feature an expert Guest Speaker.

Am I Eligible to Join?

The Solano-Napa Roundtable is open to entrepreneurs who currently own small businesses (up to 50 employees) in Solano or Napa County.
