Business Referral And Inspiration Network (B.R.A.I.N)

The "Big" BRAIN is a referral networking group that is based on the Business Referral and Inspiration Network model. BRAIN is similar to other networking groups such as BNI or Pepnet but we DO NOT have an annual fee. We are looking for people who have been in business in Colorado Springs for at least 1 year and want to represent and grow their primary, full-time business.  We do only allow one member per line of business; therefore, if your profession is already taken, you won't be able to join. However, we love visitors, so please feel free to stop by or call ahead of time to see if your profession is already filled.

We meet on Tuesday mornings from 8:15am to 9:30am at Mimi's Cafe at S. Carefree & Powers. Since the inception of the group in 2014, our group of ethical and professional individuals have referred over two million dollars in close of business between the group.   We are currently growing and looking to add other driven business owners to join us!  We would love to have you come visit to see if BRAIN is a fit for you and your business.

Have a question? Feel free to call Heather at 719-232-3848.
