The Douro Dummer Business Networking Group has launched with the inaugural meeting to be held on May 29, 2019 from 7-8:30 p.m. at the Town Hall in Warsaw.
Councillor Heather Watson (acorn30) and Alyssa Heffernan (Heffernan First Aid) have started the group with the goal to bring together Douro Dummer based businesses to support each other through networking and professional development opportunities.
The Group launched a Facebook Page where area business owners can join and share ideas and information. There will be monthly networking meetings which follow a format of 30 minutes of informal networking, 30 minute guest speaker on varying topics followed by another 30 minutes of networking.
Watson said, “As an entrepreneur myself, it can be isolating and rural businesses face unique challenges. Businesses in the community need an opportunity to connect to share ideas and resources in order to help them thrive.”
There are no fees to join the group. All businesses whether they are micro/home-based businesses or larger enterprises are invited to be a member provided they are based in Douro Dummer Township.
