Our partners not only provide venue space and services, but are also actively engaged in the planning processes, facilitating dialogue between business representatives and non-profits. When we met with KIC early this year, we were thrilled to find out the two organizations share much in common: for example, the belief that businesses and nonprofits should deepen collaborations between themselves. We also share the passion of doing what we do best to support the local communities. As a non-commercial event, B4B always works closely with our network of partners.
