Business Referral Networks
Building Business Through Networking
The Palo Alto Chamber Business Referral Networks (BRN) represent a broad-based coalition of businesses throughout the Palo Alto area. The BRN Mission is to enhance our businesses by building strong relationships through weekly communication and the exchange of leads, referrals, and contact information.
Members of BRN assemble in forums comprised of a variety of business professionals representing various industries. Through exchange of information collective efforts are focused on creating business opportunities. This is accomplished by referring business among the members. The BRN meets Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. at Comerica Bank located at 250 Lytton Avenue. The Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce is the sponsor for BRN. All members of BRN must be members of the Chamber. BRN provides a forum for cohesive and dynamic interaction among business professionals focused on networking opportunities that result in prospective customers for your business. For more information on joining the group please contact the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce at (650) 324-3121 or
