The Business Community

The Business Community helps businesses collaborate, grow, share and thrive.

It is brought to you by the team behind the St Albans Businesses Community.  After 4 years of growth, success, teamwork and some amazing collaborations, they have decided that every town needs a Business Community to bring businesses together. The team has more years of business experience between them than they care to admit to and have worked in all sorts of industry sectors.  What’s brought them together is their love of community – bringing people together to support, help and thrive.

At the moment they have 2 fully active and growing communities – in St Albans and Enfield.  They also have Facebook groups growing other communities ready for their full launch – which is rather exciting.  Their Facebook groups are ‘closed’ to ensure that only members of business community can see what’s going on.
