Network In Austin (dot) Com

NetworkInAustin.com is back.

Well it was never really gone, but the brain-child of local businessman Scott Ingram was put on the back burner as he and his wife had two children, remodeled their house and Scott developed a successful career with ADP.

While still leading the charge for ADP's middle market accounts, Scott is in the process of relaunching his website that focuses on networking opportunities in the Central Texas area.

While there’s no lack of networking opportunities in Austin, there’s also no comprehensive listing of all those events and organizations.

Until now.

NetworkInAustin.com grew out of a desire to make networking as productive as possible for local small business owners by allowing them to find the networking opportunities best suited to their schedules, budgets and message. A categorized directory provides members key information about Austin’s many networking events and the organizations that sponsor them, from large Chamber of Commerce conferences to intimate small-group networking breakfasts.

Individual NetworkInAustin.com members can also receive a listing in the online networking directory, increasing their professional visibility. Can’t remember who you met during last Tuesday’s lunch? Just skim through the industry-specific listings to bring up photos, profiles and business information about Austin’s most active networkers.

NetworkInAustin.com’s goal is to facilitate the relationship-building process that is at the core of business success — and, in doing so, help transform fledgling start-up ventures into profitable long-term enterprises. They believe that productive networking is one of the best, most cost-effective marketing programs a small business can develop, one that has the potential to create powerful word-of-mouth awareness on a shoe-string budget.

Hey, I believe that too!!!

****Also, Scott has created a LinkedIn Group for Austinites to have discussions and contacts with each other on LinkedIn. You do NOT need to be a member of NetworkInAustin.com to join the LinkedIn Group!!! Join today.

Have A Great Day.

Thom,

This is a very thoughtful, well written post about Network in Austin. I was also interested in you book, Assembly Required: A Networking Guide for Women. I'm going to go check it out on Amazon. Austin certainly doesn't lack for networking opportunities, and I've found it's the best way to build my business.
