Welcome to Business Pink

Business Pink is an organization run by women, for the advancement of women. We meet quarterly to network, exchange ideas and promote our businesses and careers. It’s the new solution to the old boys’ club – networking with wine and cheese, and attending luncheon seminars. Casual, yet professional, Business Pink is the Hudson Valley’s premier women’s networking group! Our mission is to provide a forum for entrepreneurial women to network, exchange ideas, enhance professional skills and promote their careers.
