Helping Make Business A Success in Redcar and Cleveland

Redcar and Cleveland Business Network (formerly Revitalize Redcar) is an independently managed and volunteer-led monthly meet-up of of businesses from Redcar and Cleveland who have forged a positive business community to help each other overcome challenges of starting a running a business.

On the first Wednesday of each month* business owners meet at the Redcar and Cleveland Community Heart to meet other business owners, potential clients/customers to share best practice, forge new relationships and build awareness of their business.  Each meeting features a guest speaker(s) to talk about a business topic to inspire businesses, educate and share knowledge and help them succeed, as well as an opportunity to network before and after the event and a 15 second introduction plug for your own business or event.

All meetings are free and we encourage everyone to attend on a regular basis to get the most of the events as it takes time to build relationships. If you haven’t networked before and don’t know what to do, read more here.

Each meeting is broadcast on Facebook live and we encourage business to follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook and engage with us on Linked In. If you tag us in on your social media posts, we will share them for free to our combined network of over 1,300 followers, don’t forget to include the hashtag #ourredcarcleveland or #businessredcarcleveland for the chance of your post to be shared across the Redcar Ambassador network.

The venue, refreshments and free car parking are kindly provided by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and volunteers Duco Digital, Kings Celebrant Services and Geoff Crust Furniture manage the event with key support from RCVDA, and crucial sponsorship from Bede Finanical Group.
