Welcome to a different kind of Business Networking in Hull

Who are we?

The Business Community Co-operative (BCC) are a group of local business people whose members work together as a marketing co-operative.

We actively help each other with new leads, opportunities, business support and mentoring.

The group exists solely for the benefit of its members and local good causes, we are not managed by any outside agency, nor do we have any affiliation with any other group or networking organisation. We are autonomous and self-regulating.

The group operates on a  non-profit basis –  ALL surplus finance generated by the group is donated to charity. Nobody receives any payment for running the group.

What do we do?

  • We meet regularly on Thursday mornings at 7 am at The Village Hotel: Henry Boot Way, Priory Way, Hull HU4 7DY
  • Our structured meeting format allows us to pass business leads, give testimonials and generally support each other’s businesses.
  • From January 2017 Meeting fees for members and visitors are £13 per meeting – there are no other membership dues.
