The West Side Business Network (WSBN) began in 2013 when the Austin Weekly News saw the need to provide networking opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs on Chicago’s Greater West Side, bridging the gap between the city and near west suburbs. It’s been a year now, and we’ve been remarkably successful with well over 500 community members and partners in our network. The WSBN is FREE to join and includes many benefits, such as advertising rates exclusive to members, inclusion of an informational flyer about an event or services in our weekly WSBN Update email that goes to thousands of locals, and more!
The WSBN is a collection of networking groups, many of which meet monthly, whose goal is to facilitate professional connections throughout the communities we serve. Groups part of the WSBN are the Austin Weekly News Business Development GroupWest Side WomenWest Side MenWest Side Bridge (bridging the gap between the West Side of Chicago and the Western Suburbs), West Side Manufacturing Network, and the Illinois Press Association award winning Out & About in Austin – showing all that’s good on the West Side of Chicago.
