The Santa Barbara Business Network and the Business Expo were founded by local entrepreneurs, Sandy and Gino Goe, and produced with a team of South Coast business owners and professionals who share the vision of an interactive and supportive business community.

“The Santa Barbara Business Network is the business hub for Santa Barbara, bringing independent business owners together, and connecting them with key resources to raise their revenue and public awareness,” said Sandy Goe. “The Santa Barbara Business Expo & Conference is an incubator for influencers.”

The purpose of the expo is to provide a one-day venue where business owners can find all the resources they need in one place to boost their business for the year and future. The organizers said.

Industry experts will answers questions one-on-one on many topics including writing business plans, financial management, branding and social media marketing.

Each year a nonprofit is selected to benefit through the publicity and ticket sales of the expo, Sandy Goe said. The 2017 nonprofit is Habitat for Humanity, which works with low-income individuals and families in southern Santa Barbara County to build or improve a place they can call home.
