The North Shore Business Forum

The North Shore Business Forum, Inc (NSBF) is a group of small business owners from Boston’s North Shore who meet for informal lectures given by business leaders on a wide variety of topics. Members are also invited to give their 30-second “elevator pitch.” All business owners are welcome: future, past, profitable, experienced or beginning. The NSBF meets the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. (registration starts at 7:15) at Acapulco’s, 900 Cummings Center, Beverly, MA. The $10 meeting fee includes networking, a featured presentation, and breakfast buffet.

No pre-registration required, but your RSVP on our Meetup page is appreciated.

The “Meeting After the Meeting” Returns!

The North Shore Business Forum is re-instituting the concept of having members share their expertise with other members on an informal basis, in brief, no-cost sessions after its Friday morning networking meetings.

If you are an NSBF member with an interest in offering your own “Meeting After the Meeting” session in the future, please see NSBF President Brett Kirkpatrick at one of our meetings, or email him at events@nsbforum.org .

If the Beverly, MA public school system announces a “no school” snow day on one of our scheduled Fridays, then the NSBF meeting for that day will be cancelled. Check the NSBF Facebook page for updates as well. (See our “About NSBF” page for more information.)
