The people who devised, designed, launched, and manage Synapse have many years experience in all areas of business and nonprofits.
Perhaps most especially, they are expert connectors over a broad range of business sectors and have a long track record of success at local, regional, national, and international levels.
The aim of all of us at Synapse is to lead the development of a business networking, collaboration, and support organization unlike any other.
Our Synapse mission is to help businesses and nonprofits in communities across the U.S. connect with one another to foster greater economic and community development.
Our value proposition is created by the synergy of the right people connecting and collaborating. Our Hub members are a totally diverse group committed to their own success and the success of everyone else in the Synapse group.
Our entire approach is to get the right people in the room. That way, we create more mutually beneficial business relationships.
Specifically built around each Hub leader according to the business needs of that individual, Hubs evolve into effective mutual assistance units.
Hub demographics are also dynamic in response to members’ needs, e.g., women-owned, veteran-owned, under 35’s, over 60’s, minority-owned, none of the above, or whatever works for the group.
Realistic needs assessments result in a focused effort to provide fertile business opportunities for members, while no cost or low cost education and coaching modules extend the abilities and effectiveness of everyone.
With experience of the Synapse program, members will perceive significant value because of their membership.
