Welcome to the Georgetown Business Network!
GBN began out of the realization that small businesses, owners and professionals are well positioned to learn from each other, benefit one another and share centers of influence, within such a close knit
community as Georgetown.

By encouraging it’s members to attend weekly breakfasts at Roots Bistro, member businesses develop close relationships with other businesses in our community. It is these close relationships that will encourage referral based business development
According to Money Magazine Georgetown is the number 2 city in the country to launch a small business. All business owners and professionals regardless of their industry face similar challenges. Marketing ideas, recruitment solutions, and business development strategies are all a part of what makes up GBN. By networking weekly members are rewarded with guest speakers ranging from fellow GBN members discussing the nuances of their product or service, to local politicians explaining how new legislation could impact the area. GBN was begun out of the realization that “iron sharpens iron”. By leaning on one another, learning from one another, and passing referrals to one another, business can thrive even in a down economy.
GBN is also about leaving a legacy. Georgetown is different. This is obvious the minute one drives across the Old Town Square. It’s important that the local business leaders step up and preserve that legacy, at the same time protect a viable business climate for entrepreneurs to succeed. GBN is about leaving a legacy in the town, a “footprint” so to speak. Our members make up 8 representatives on the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce board of directors. We have member businesses designated as small and large business of the year by the Chamber of Commerce. We have members who serve at the will of City Council on various Boards and Committees reporting to Council. Some of our members are running for local government office. GBN is also actively involved in volunteer efforts with the Ride On Center for Kids (R.O.C.K). Our first annual fundraiser benefiting the Georgetown Project is slated for this October.
