The Genuine Networking Association was created to provide San Francisco Bay Area Business Professionals with an affordable alternative to meeting other like-minded business professionals. All of our events will always have NO ADMISSION FEE!!! We understand during these trying times that not everyone can afford to spend a lot of money on networking. Also, while we are not discouraging other groups, we feel that you don't need to spend a lot of money or waste your time at other events that are not going to be the most productive use of your time and financial investment.
The Successful Thinkers Network's mission is to build a community of Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs that exchange leads, and help each other find solutions to business challenges.

All members are strongly encourage to schedule one-on-ones before leaving the venue so that they know other members and what they are looking for at a deeper level. It is only at this time business cards are exchanged!!!
