Cornerstone Business Support and Networking

Cornerstone is a Northamptonshire centred Business Support and Networking non-profit group made up of local business owners – from solo entrepreneurs to owners and managers of medium sized businesses.

What we all have in common is a desire to help each other succeed in their businesses, to share ideas, give support and advice and to have fun doing it!

Working together

Here’s just some of the things Cornerstone can support you with:

  • Financial advice
  • Social media
  • Websites
  • Accounting
  • Dog behaviour training

Can you see yourself making a similar contribution?

Why not make alternate Wednesday mornings your regular time to network, make friends and do business?

Oh and don’t forget the brilliant breakfast!

Ready to give us a try? There’s no commitment, no pressure to join and it’s only £15 per meeting.

We Are Cornerstone

The pandemic brought massive upheaval. Eight passionate business owners decided to change the way they networked.

Cornerstone was established in July 2020 as a local independent networking group covering Northamptonshire.

At the end of December 2023 the members decided to refocus the group, making the meetings less formal with more emphasis on support and business growth. 

We also reduced the cost of membership and provided flexibility for people who couldn’t commit to every meeting.

Our objective is to encourage, support and build long-lasting business relationships.

A Hybrid Lock-out Group

Cornerstone is a hybrid category lock-out group. You can pay a monthly fee to become a member and lock out your category. Or you can come on an ad-hoc basis, as long as your category hasn’t been locked out.

Visit Us

Our meetings – including a delicious breakfast – are only £15 to attend (vegan/vegetarian/GF options are available on request).

Once you’ve visited us and seen what we do, you can keep attending on an ad-hoc basis or join as a regular member (£25pm) and lock your seat.

We meet face-to-face every other Wednesday morning:

• Open Networking and breakfast: 7:30 – 8:15

• Formal Meeting: 8:15 – 9:30

Our meetings are held at the beautiful and historic Hind Hotel, located in the centre of Wellingborough.
