Network (also Club, League, etc.) - any formal structure that brings businesses together (either physically or through a joint communication channel) for the purpose of sharing information.
What's the benefit?
Green Networks targeted at smaller businesses (SMEs) can be tailored to their needs - whether timing, content or location. At the most simple level, a Network of businesses can receive information, and make it easier for the support to find the SMEs that need it most. But a really successful network goes further; with the SMEs setting the agenda, sharing learning and driving each other forwards a Network can be the basis of a modal shift that benefits everybody.
