Benefits

We're all about the benefits.

The Bettendorf Business Network sets three goals for itself: help members succeed in their businesses, create a vibrant economic environment that makes success possible and advocate for civic projects and programs that benefit the general community.

Our name defines our mission. We focus on Bettendorf businesses and improving the Bettendorf business environment and community. We create an active business network designed to achieve what could not be accomplished by a single individual or commercial enterprise.

Our motto, “Creating Business Opportunities,” indicates members of the Bettendorf Business Network intend to encourage business growth and cooperation, timely and focused education of our members, improved communication on business-related issues, innovation in business practice and increased productivity in the workplace.

The people we bring together distinguish our network activities. We will link businesses to customers, partner with local government to achieve a productive business environment, work with schools to enhance educational workforce programs and encourage manufacturers and suppliers to provide the highest quality goods to meet the material needs of our community.

To achieve these ends the Bettendorf Business Network hopes to offer an outstanding array of services and opportunities for its’ members, including the following:

Educational Opportunities

Offer workshops to update members on current business laws and practices. Sponsor forums focused on topics of interest to the Bettendorf business community which feature knowledgeable speakers discussing timely issues. Develop a mentoring program to help new and existing businesses succeed. Provide access to resources for small and medium-size businesses.

Promotional Opportunities

Solicit and offer Big Deals and special discounts to members, particularly via website. Create website with members directory linked to their individual websites. Make referral of area businesses in response to customer inquiries. Offer mediation and arbitration services to resolve disputes. Send weekly e-mail newsletter with local calendar of events.
