The event provides an opportunity for local business people to get together and network while enjoying breakfast and coffee provided by Marmalade Café and Zizzo’s.

The breakfast will include a presentation from Noozhawk, after which anyone attending will have an opportunity to make a 20-second elevator speech introducing themselves and their businesses. Names and contact information will also be added to a hot list, which will be made available to all participants.

“Noozhawk is in growth mode, and we’ve got a lot coming up very quickly this fall,” said Bill Macfadyen, Noozhawk’s founder and publisher. “We’re excited to have the chance to share our plans with many of our clients as well as our prospects — all at once.

“As a Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce board member, it’s been rewarding to watch the B2B Breakfast develop into a linchpin of the chamber’s outreach to local businesses. It’s become an important networking opportunity and an outstanding recruiting tool for new members.”

According to Shelby Sim, the chamber’s business development director, attendance at the breakfasts has grown to an average of 100 participants from around 50.

Sim said the events have become more successful this past year.

“It’s an awesome networking opportunity,” Sim said. “There are always new faces, so even if you’ve come before, there are always new people to meet.”

The event will run from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. Tickets are $20 for Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce members, $25 for nonmembers and $5 for ambassadors. Click here to register online.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.
