What is Hampshire Business Networking?

Hampshire Business Networking is a collective of networking meetings to help Hampshire business people to meet and collaborate for their mutual benefit. We encourage joining as a member but membership is not a pre-requisite for attending. We are committed to generating a trading surplus which is distributed to local worthy causes, including the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, Winchester Scouts, Munch CIC and many others.

What are the values of Hampshire Business Networking?

Our values are centred on creating the opportunity to start conversations that build meaningful relationships and in doing so, raising awareness of and financially contributing to local worthy causes. Our principal charity partner is Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. We have other charity members who we also donate to and are always open to support other local causes.

How do your networking meetings raise charitable funds?

Hampshire Business Networking is a Not for Profit, Unincorporated Social Enterprise. Our income comes from the costs of attending a meeting and the fees generated from joining as a member (if you choose to do so). Any trading surplus goes to our charity partners.

We have a democratic Management Team of 12 Volunteers who decide on Policy and Implementation. Their role is to develop our offerings for the benefit of Members and support all our initiatives and events. They pay their own fees and commit to attending our Main Events (missing 3 consecutively is deemed resignation).

Why should I become a member of Hampshire Business Networking?

Everyone is welcome to attend any event. We regularly welcome new visitors to all our meetings. Membership is not compulsory but we believe that joining as a member shows you share our approach and ethos, and that a membership club thrives by everyone supporting one another.
