The "swirl" in the logo is a nod to the routes of The Business Community being in Northamptonshire, as was the co-proposer of the double helix structure of the DNA molecule: Francis Crick.
Born in Weston Favell, Francis worked with American molecular biologist James Watson proposing their findings in an academic paper in 1953. Together with Watson and Maurice Wilkins, he was jointly awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine "for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material".

One of my favourite networking events. Good people, fun but structured meetings with useful connections being made, 1-2-1s, and a member presentation. No pressure and no scoresheets, but of course you get out what you put in and it’s all about relationship building. The additional member benefits over and above the networking itself is where the gold is.Steven Mather - Nexa Law
I really enjoy the meetings, the format works well and the atmosphere is friendly, most importantly it is not too scary if you are new to networking. I have made some valuable business contacts over the last year that I would not have found had it not been for The Business Community.Andi Herrington - Wallis Payroll
It is the best networking group I have ever been part of. The other members have given me such a warm welcome into the community and they are all supportive towards your business. The way Paul Green has structured the business community is fantastic and very well thought through. There is a whole host of opportunities to give your business exposure.Joseph Mogale - Strategic Web Success
Having just started networking I realise what great opportunities there are in the local area and get to meet some very interesting people and businesses.
I'm very positive that given time the fruits of my effort will pay off, so keeping my fingers crossed.
In any case, The Business Community is a very welcoming environment and not the stuffy corporate atmosphere I used to in my past life.Geraint Williams - Fourwinds Photography Services
