At BSDF we believe that through working together as a local business community we can strengthen the economic development of our area. We provide opportunities for local business owners and staff to connect as human beings! To meet each other, build relationships and explore connections and opportunities to collaborate.

We design these opportunities as informal networking events – focused on conversations rather than selling. We invite anyone involved in local business in the Bayside to come along and join the conversation. We also aim to keep our networks updated on all that is happening locally, and to look for opportunities to connect local businesses with community development needs.

We currently have 2 regular monthly networking events:

Bayside Connect Networking events are held at 6:30pm on the 1st Tuesday of every month (except January!), hosted by a variety of local businesses. Keep up to date with our events through our Facebook page –

BWIB Coffee mornings at held at 9:30am on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Keep up to date with events through the BWIB Facebook page –

We love the opportunity to support local businesses and events. If you are interested in supporting local businesses, wish to connect with local businesses for a community event, or looking to help build connections that support economic development in our area, please do email us, or come along to Bayside Connect.
