Get published on Forbes.com
Members are selected for the Council based on their depth and diversity of experience, then invited to share their insights via CommunityVoice on Forbes.com. Write business articles or submit brief industry-related tips when you’re short on time. Our in-house editorial team will guide you through a professional editing process to ensure your content meets the Forbes.com criteria and is primed for audience engagement.
Find your personal think tank
You don't have to be an expert in everything when you know a network of experts in every industry. Gain 24/7 access to a collaborative community of fellow Boston business owners and leaders. In our forums, you'll share challenges, invite discussion, and form lasting partnerships.
Prestige of association with the Forbes brand
Brand recognition is a critical component to building trust with customers — whether they're fellow Bostonians or live across the globe. As a member, you’ll have access to tools — from digital badges to press releases to plaques for your wall — that showcase your association with the world’s most renowned name in business.
Attend expertly planned events
Whether an intimate dinner, a post-conference happy hour, or an invite to an exclusive venue or VIP speaker, we have an event suited to your style. No matter what you RSVP for, you'll find the opportunity to build new connections, strengthen existing relationships, and walk away reenergized.
Call upon your concierge team
A professional network shouldn't be hard work, it should work for you. That's why you'll find our concierge team at the center of everything we do. For questions about membership, requests for introductions, product recommendations, public relations support, and more; they're just a text, email, or chat away.
Get discounts to grow your business
If smart spending is one of your business priorities, we've got you covered. Through exclusive partnerships, we offer deep discounts on software (payment processing, marketing, and more), travel services, back office support, and more. And when the options are overwhelming, call upon a concierge to help you find right provider at the best rate.
Access to benefits any time
All of these benefits and more are available from your computer or mobile device with a quick log-in. Traveling? Search the member directory for someone nearby. Questions? Chat a concierge. Extra time for some press exposure? Answer a quick industry-related question for the chance to get featured in an upcoming article.
