According to the Roosevelt Island Business Networking Group:
About 30 residents, with professions ranging from photographer and architect to travel agent and caterer, gathered on Tuesday morning, March 13 to swap business cards and consider how they might be able to help each other grow their small business and solo practices.

Organized by Tom Wood, a financial specialist, and Janet Falk, a public relations professional, the group set an agenda to hold monthly meetings, both morning and evening, to accommodate the maximum number of participants.

Members have been invited to join the Roosevelt Island Business Networking Group on LinkedIn.

There was considerable excitement as attendees expressed their interest in meeting like-minded small business owners and independent consultants. Tom stressed that the group will foster growth that will benefit all those who contribute. Janet mentioned that "Networking is not about me; it's about you," and encouraged members to consider who is on the other side and how they might help that person.

Future meetings will feature six-minute presentations each by three members to share their expertise, showcase a success story or pose a question for group discussion on best practices. This is a perfect opportunity and environment for Roosevelt Island’s business leaders to connect and form significant relationships.

The next event will be held on Tuesday, March 27 at 7:30 pm; please contact Tom Wood at to RSVP. Members are encouraged to bring Island friends and neighbors who are also small business owners and solo practitioners.
