The Networking Group was founded in 1992 at a local deli on Chicago's North Shore by a handful of individuals committed to helping each other build their respective businesses through the exchange of referrals, leads, and business ideas. From this simple start TNG has grown to over a hundred and forty members, each in a unique, non-competitive service or product.  We gather once a month as a group and dozens of times in one-on-one meetings.

The simple concept of helping yourself by helping others has grown to include advanced "Give First" networking techniques, Pay-It-Forward contributions to individuals and groups each month, peer advice on business ideas and marketing, and exposure to resources other members are using in their organizations.  Each month TNG makes a deep and often profound difference in the lives of the members and the future of their businesses.

TNG is Chicago's premier Business Networking Group.
