What is the Business Resource Group (BRG)?
The goal of the BRG is to facilitate valuable, confidential, peer-to-peer sharing among local entrepreneurs that will help them grow their businesses. BRG holds a key to success for you and other business owners like you.
How BRG Works:
The Business Resource Group is a peer-to-peer group customized for small business owners that are members of the North Jersey Chamber. The BRG is open to a limited number of key decision makers from non-competing companies. Members meet every 2 weeks to seek and provide business advice, and help each other improve the quality of their business decisions. Members run meetings, guide discussions and find outside speakers when the group wants to bring in experts for advice on an issue. Although the BRG program is not intended to provide sales leads, the strong relationships that result can lead to referrals.
