About Akron Business to Business
Akron Business to Business was created with the sole purpose of encouraging positive interactions within the b2b community of Northeast Ohio. Strategic partnering is very important to surviving amongst the small business community. At a time when Northeast Ohio business has been hit hard, Akron Business to Business provides the opportunity for a supportive, positive environment to exist for business owners to learn and grow with the help of their peers. Akron Business to Business was the brainchild of members of the NEO Business Network, a private meetup.com group for area business owners.
Alma Gray is organizer of the NEO Business Network, “I find it important to create and sustain valuable, sincere business relationships. Especially in tough times like these. I also find it important to try and help one another as peers in the business community. I am a big proponent of small business involvement in social media to boost marketing efforts. That is why I created the NEO Business Network. As a result of meeting some great people through the group, I came to realize not everyone is aware of the effectiveness of social media for small business. Nor do they have the time to commit to our meetup group. That is why we created Akron Business to Business. Since it is online, the convenience factor is there, as well as being a time saver. So whether you want to use it as a source of information, or become actively involved, you have a choice. Although I believe those who would actively participate would benefit most. Networking for me is key to business survival these days. I fully believe networking is based on reciprocity in business relationships.”
