Who are we?

Palo Alto Business Referral Network (BRN) is a group of select members of the Palo Alto business community who meet weekly to exchange referrals. BRN members represent non-competing businesses in various categories to help other members in developing sales prospects.

The BRN meets for one hour (coffee and bagels are served) to exchange referrals, strategize for success, and leverage power-partnerships. It's sole purpose is the exchange of referrals. Members act as de facto sales representatives for each other.



Only one member from each business category is allowed. Please check the members page to view current members. Certain business categories allow for sub-specialties, i.e. auto insurance vs. life insurance or business law vs. probate law. Please contact any member for questions about open member categories. All BRN members must also already be members of the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce.


Attendance, Fees and Dues

BRN Membership requires regular attendance at weekly meetings, Tuesdays 8:30-9:30 a.m. One-time initiation fee is $85 and current quarterly dues are $25.

Prospective members are invited to attend meetings as guests to see if BRN is a good fit. Typically meetings include 30-second member introductions, an educational minute, one 20-minute member presentation (including Q&A), referral exchanges and a brief housekeeping discussion. Weekly member presentations are determined by scheduled rotation.
