Find the Events that Matter™
The new Business Calendar Network (BCN) app for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad was designed specifically for entrepreneurs and professionals looking to develop their business, their career, or their network. Use it to keep up with your local startup scene and meet and connect with potential investors, clients, employers, and colleagues. Lawyers, accountants, and sales reps will find this app a valuable tool for finding the best networking events.

The events are pulled from an ongoing feed of events from the web-based Business Calendar Network. The Business Calendar Network started in Philadelphia and is being rolled out into new regions, so events can be found for locations all across the U.S. Users can add their own events if they want to share them with the community.
We are still building out the Business Calendar Network. If no events are found in your area, you can add some events yourself, tell your friends to add some, or let us know where you are and what you want and we can add some. The best option is to have the organizations in your area join the Business Calendar Network. Let us know who to call.
Start with Events 30 Miles Around
The BCN app for the Apple iPhone starts off with the Base page, where it shows you all of the events listed for the next few days within 30 miles of your current location. In addition to the Base page, you can view events that offer meals, search for events in different locations or on different days, or bookmark events for future recall.
Find Events that Offer Food and Drink
The Meals page in BCN app for the Apple iPhone shows you which events in the next 5 days will be including breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktails. Sometimes these are free, sometimes the meal is included in the cost of the event, and sometimes it is just an opportunity to meet with like-minded people as you cover the cost of your own food and drink.
