What is the Southwest Florida Business Network?

Networking is one of the most powerful tools for business owners and dedicated working professionals. 

SWFL Business Network is dedicated to connecting Southwest Florida’s local businesses with one another to help one another grow. Our mission is simple. We strive to empower business professionals through meaningful relationships that produce quality referrals. All of our events and programs focus on professional development and mentorship. 

Businesspeople are people first, each with their own unique personalities, specialties, and needs. By operating without exclusivity limits, our members can connect with, learn from, and invest in a wide range of people in the same industry.

Attend A Meeting

Weekly meetings are free networking opportunities presented by Southwest Florida Business Network. It’s a great time to meet new friends and business partners and a great opportunity to get in face-time with your current connections. 

Meetings will be held Mondays and Fridays.

Monday meetings will be held at Fk Your Diet Cape Coral.

Friday Meetings will be held at European-American Bakery Cafe (12450 Metro Pkwy, Fort Myers, FL 33966) from 7:30 AM-9:30 AM.

Each meeting, we will focus on open networking and introductions/announcements, keeping the event casual, simple, and effective. Don’t forget your business cards!

New Initiatives

We’re always thinking of new ways for our members and their referrals to get more out of the SWFL Business Network. Here are some new programs and initiatives we’ve implemented.

New Business and New Resident Programs

Members can add giveaway items and coupon offers to a welcome bag that we give out to anyone who registers for either of these two programs. These new folks can join our meetings or attend one of our quarterly mixers to pick up their welcome bags and get introduced to some friendly new faces.

Pop-up Events

Premium members can submit a suggestion for breakfast, lunch, or afterhours pop-up events where they are the host. It’s all about you and what you choose to feature. you suggest it and we will approve it and publish and advertise it with you as the host. You’re responsible to invite your friends and clients and publish the event in all your social media channels. Contact us if you’d like to be our star host for the next pop-up, and we’ll make it happen!

Invite A Friend

Get a taste of a Premium Membership by bringing a guest with you to a meeting! With a friend by your side, you’ll receive a free social media shout-out on our channels which can get you both some extra exposure.
