Connect was created by three Tucson business owners who wanted to bring a new concept to networking.

Bobbi Still, Affinity for Design, co-founder says,

“I wanted to belong to a networking group devoted to helping my company grow with other like-minded business owners. I visualized a networking atmosphere where individuals were being supported, not tracked for their performance in growing the group. That is why I am proud to say, Connect does not have a membership fee, rather, a marketing fee dedicated to marketing your business to others.”

I believe that an impactful agenda focused on relevant business topics and quality activities will attract other like-minded business owners. Together we will learn and grow!
