Who We Are
If you’re looking to discover or level up your business’s impact, you’ve found your tribe. Be Local is, unapologetically, not your average business network.
We believe buying and selling from each other is just the beginning. We’re about building a community of passionate people that support and inspire each other (and have while fun doing it).
We believe meaningful impact extends far beyond writing a cheque. It means innovative collaborations and intentional partnerships.
We believe how we bring people together is just as important to us as what we bring together people about. That means outdoor activities, live music, art, bonfires, meditation and embracing the unconventional.
We believe in dreaming up new possibilities that we can only achieve together.
