The Capital Area Network is a business networking group
in the Washington, DC Metro Area.
Originally founded in 1995, the Capital Area Network focuses on building member businesses through leads and referrals in a positive, cooperative working environment. With members from Montgomery County, Howard County, and the District of Columbia, we have the same goal as more formal leads organizations, but are less formal in our structure, requirements, and fees. Additionally, we share marketing and sales ideas as well as professional advice with our fellow participants.
Each member of the Capital Area Network fills a specific niche.
If you are interested in visiting our group, please contact Gabe Seiden.
