Innovating Business Networking Since 2001

Ever since Business for Breakfast was founded in 2001, the network has innovated to add value to its members.

The evolution of BforB has focused on delivering an ever more effective forum through which relationships are built, and qualified referrals are passed.

This drive to stay ahead of the curve saw Business for Breakfast become the first ever British founded referral marketing franchise in the UK, but we didn’t stop there.
