Virtual Business Owners Network

The Virtual Business Owners Network (VBON) is a proven platform for business owners and decision makers to meet in the right environment for their mutual benefit. This is about building a network of people who understand clearly what you offer and who can help you find new business opportunities.


By building relationships you get the added benefit of meeting like minded people who support each other by identifying real business opportunities and collaborations. 

Our Zoom events deliver business knowledge, tips and the opportunity to build life long connections. There is no cost to be involved and you can attend our 1 hour online event at 10.00am every Friday as suits you.


All we ask is that you come with an open mind and an open heart.


We meet every Friday at 10.00am via ZOOM

History - the Virtual Business Owners Network was created as a support mechanism for business owners struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic. Little did we realise that the vision, mission and values that we have would grow the community into the organisation we have today.

We have active members in Germany and Italy as well as Ireland which has led to collaborations and successful business ventures. Those who have attended regularly have benefitted from the value that an active networking group brings. 
The vision is that we would bring together business owners who are decision makers on a regular basis for mutual support. This would be done by getting to know each other, sharing knowledge and building rapport and trust so that we promote each other when the opportunity arises.

One of the exciting aspects of every Virtual Business Owners Network is the chance to virtually meet with peers from all over the world and every industry niche, from engineers and programmers to planners and designers. Experts from so many backgrounds come together to share, learn, explore, dream and grow. Join us!



We meet every Friday at 10.00am for one hour on the Zoom platform. During the event there will be a short presentation on a business topic with tips that you can use. We share information and we meet each other in breakout rooms where we get the opportunity to get to know each other and discover what opportunities are out there.

We know from speaking with those who attend regularly that considerable business is being done by members meeting with other members after the events.

Present to the Group

Every member of the Virtual Business Owners Network is invited to deliver a presentation on
topics that showcase your knowledge and have value to the other members.


Sponsorship Opportunity 

We have built a strong community of more than 200 members and continue to attract new members. Our unique offering is based on mutual support, networking and collaboration and was a welcome response to the Covid pandemic when we first set up in March 2020. Like all membership organisations we rely on the support of members to give of their time so that can all enjoy the benefits of collaboration and networking. There are opportunities for organisations who wish to explore strategic partnerships with us and who can deliver offerings of value or other support for our members. If you would like to find out more please contact me either by phone 087 271 1955 or email
