Our networking events are a great way to connect with fellow businesses in an informal, social atmosphere and to increase awareness of the products and services your company offers. Several networking events are held each month so pick a date that works for you. All associates and sponsors of your networking event must be 1Berkshire Members. Learn more about our different events below and submit a form to signup to host.
Good News Business Salute
Throughout the year, 1Berkshire selects businesses and organizations based on nominations from the community to recognize at Good News Business Salutes. “Good News” can be an expansion, creation of new jobs, significant milestone or anniversary, the unveiling of a new program, or a substantial new commitment to the community.
This monthly after-hour event has a dedicated following, with crowds of 100+ attendees at each one. The host provides complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages (cash or open bar) and a small fee. Get business people to know about your venue so they can start thinking about booking space there.
The creative economy is alive and well in the Berkshires. Get to know individuals in creative industries and what their work is all about. As part of our Sparkplug Speed Speaker Series innovative and inspiring creative entrepreneurs are selected to speak at Sparks. After hearing from the speaker(s) attendees dive deep into networking through intimate breakouts scattered across the grounds.
This free event gathers entrepreneurs together to network, learn, and engage. Most meetups feature a speaker who tells their startup story or gives an informal presentation about resources they provide. Host entrepreneurs for either early morning coffee or drinks after work to engage in conversations about business opportunities, issues, and ideas.
