Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

Demian Ross is a former Chamber of Commerce director who saw a real need for small business owners to be able to network in EVERY city they need to do business. He founded an organization called BizBizGroups, which allows small business owners to host and attend any meeting in any city.

BizBizGroups fills a real void that most small business owners have, they find it hard to market their services by meeting people and setting appointments and that's where BizBizGroups comes in.

NO mandatory meetings, NO stuffy clicks, NO per city fee, NO one business per category, NO forced referrals, NO fund-raising, NO politics and you are NOT required to bring potential members to a meeting.

Just people and appointments made simple.

The goal is to have meetings running Monday - Thursday from 8:00-10:00am. Each city would have a meeting that rotates every other week. They will be launching a total of 8 cities in 2012 and with the goal of having 32 groups by Summer 2013.


BizBizGroups continues to provide free training on both face-to-face networking and social media training at no charge. The founder Demian Ross spends hours helping small business with their marketing and networking skills. He also spent almost 9 months volunteering at the La Mirada Chamber making sure it did not have to shut it's doors when the Chamber lost it's City funding. It is now debt free and growing.

BizBizGroups has the potential of really changing the way people network and grow their business relationships. Finally a networking group that is more interested in small businesses being successful then the networking groups success.
