Carolyn Cooper-McOuatt and Susan Jarema were inspired to create an online business network while in the Grand Canyon in March. COVID-19 was the catalyst. Carolyn and Susan both come from a training background having met 25 years ago teaching business planning to entrepreneurs at a local college. Since this time, their entrepreneurial journey has been vast.

We have held over 45 events and the broad community has grown to nearly 5000. Each event has consistently over 100 attendees and is growing! We run a large marketing campaign to create awareness for our partners and speakers. Our engaged community loves our events because they are valuable, fast paced and a lot of fun. Our objective is to provide extraordinary value with many take-aways and connections in the 2 hour program.

Our goal is to be the Connector of Connectors and we pride ourselves in helping our members learn about other communities and experts to expand their reach and in also helping connectors meet other leaders to partner with. We highly value collaboration. By working together, entrepreneurs and small businesses can build a better world.

Our purpose is to guide, support, educate, encourage, recognize and celebrate the success of business professionals worldwide.

Our mission is to provide business professionals education, visibility, leads, growth and grand connections through compelling (and fun) online global networking events and our marketing platform for members. We provide our fabulous community of grand givers opportunities to connect, create and collaborate.

We look forward to playing together at the Grand Connection.
