DBN is a Community Interest Company aimed at helping to build a vibrant community of small businesses that work together, promote each other’s goods and services and grow together.

We encourage members to meet up between our events and promote a positive “can do” approach so that by working together we can achieve really big things.

Our meetings are famously fun, friendly, informal and welcoming and we keep our membership fees affordable for small businesses through running the Network with volunteers from the business community.

Today DBN is more than a meeting organiser (although our monthly meetings will always be a key activity). We’re building clusters of small businesses whose combined capability can support bigger businesses and organisations across the north east and much wider.


Annual membership is just £72 and your membership entitles you to attend our monthly networking meetings and publish news items and offers in the DBN Newsletter and on our website. Remember, your business joins DBN not an individual. As a member you can:
