This group's mission is to generate business for its members through highly qualified referrals. Independent of national organizations, the membership fee is modest, just sufficient to support meeting costs, development and targeted charities
So who and what is Innovative Business Networking? We are experienced, serious, business people joining together to learn from one another, develop business for each other, and share ideas, information and business expertise within our community. We meet every Thursday morning from 7:30AM to 8:30AM at Danvers Indoor Sports Complex located on 150 Andover St, Danvers, MA 01923. The group was founded a little over a 6 years ago by a handful of local business owners that needed a change from other business networking organizations in Boston’s North Shore area. What once was a networking group of three has now grown to over twenty members. IBN members represent such diverse businesses as; accounting, business valuation and exit strategist, event planning, banking, fitness, business strategy consulting, credit card services, financial planner, supplemental insurance, chiropractor, moving services, embroidodery promotional products, insurance, IT services, legal services, personal injury defense services, mortgage services, residential real estate, commercial real estate, print services and web and mobile services.
We hope you join us here regularly to find out more about our unique and innovative networking group and learn how IBN can help you.
Mike Sobus was one of the founding members of the Innovative Business Network group and a respected Business Coach on the North Shore. Mike unfortunately passed unexpectedly in 2014. Mike had a warm and welcoming way about himself. He took it upon himself to always make visitors or new members to IBN feel welcome. He is truly missed and in his honor; in 2015 the Mike Sobus Leadership Scholarship Award was created in his memory. Eligible applicants must be from members families. The annual winner receives a grant of $500 which is awarded in May based on an essay submitted by the applicants on various leadership related topics.
IBN members currently provide services to businesses in these categories.
