Benefits to help you build your business.

Get published on

You have a story to tell about building your business — from the convictions that got you started to the talents that drove you, and the lessons learned from every bump along the way. We'll help you get that hard-earned expertise in front of a bigger audience. Members are selected for the Council based on their depth and diversity of experience, then invited to share their insights via CommunityVoice on

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.

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.

Find your personal think thank

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 assocation with the world’s most renowned name in business.

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.
