Small Business Friends, therefore, are defined by BRIC as any local business with less than 25 employees and three locations. Larger businesses are welcome to check out our corporate sponsorship opportunities. To find out more about sponsorships, corporate hospitality, and advertising opportunities, click here.

ANNOUNCING: New Perks for Business Friends

In 2018, BRIC hosted our first-ever Small Business Networking Night at the Bandhsell. The event was such a success that we decided to make this an added perk for Business Friends. During this special night, Business Friends will be invited to a private event to mingle and get to know other small business owners in our community, complete with complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. We hope you will join us all summer-long as a member and for this for this special night!
