Alameda Business Network

About Us

We Are What We Do
Alameda Business Network (ABN) is a pro­fessional organization that actively promotes our member businesses through the exchange of business leads and referrals. We also share creative and strategic business ideas to help enhance and improve business practices.

ABN members specialize in a host of different areas. Member businesses include banking and financial services, law, dentistry, advertising and marketing, real estate and property management, accounting and bookkeeping, insurance and investment services, plumbing and construction, community arts, specialty retailers, alternative medicine and therapies, and many others.
What ABN Stands For
Alameda Business Network (ABN) is an organization of business professionals that actively promotes each other’s services and products through leads and referrals within our group and through each member’s spheres of influence. These include clients, friends, family, acquaintances and the general public. We champion our fellow ABN members’ business development and vision through periodic business idea exchanges. We support our community by providing community service through fundraising events and charitable activities.
How ABN Works
Each ABN member business “owns” its business category to avoid conflicts of interest when sharing leads, referrals, and business productivity ideas. ABN members promote other ABN member services to their circle of customers, clients, and contacts in exchange for a reciprocal promotion.

If you’re interested in growing your business and in becoming part of an innovative business group, attend one of our regular Tuesday morning breakfast meetings held from 8:45-10AM at Bridgehead Studio, 2516 Blanding Avenue, Alameda.
