The Manningham Business Network Inc. (MBN) is your local business network that is open to all small and medium businesses, predominantly in Manningham. Our key function is relationship development between our member enterprises. We aim to provide you with peer support from invaluable sources enabling you to learn from others, including those who have more experience, and to gain new ideas for you to consider.

MBN’s simple motto is to “Share, Learn & Grow”.  Our firm ethos is that by providing opportunities through education and contacts with local enterprises, the Network’s member businesses will in fact grow over time from these connections and referrals.

We encourage you and your company representatives to attend one or two of our Business Connection events before making an application for MBN membership.  Your membership covers attendance and catering at both our monthly Business Connection events, which include Guest speakers, and our monthly Member-Only Forums.   You also get to further promote your own business through MBN sources.

You will find a diverse, knowledgeable membership base across a range of industries. We are the Voice of Business in Manningham.
