The B4 community has established itself over the past 14 years by bringing together organisations from the public, private and third sectors, providing the platforms for all of our members to gain profile, learn and grow together.

These platforms include B4 Magazine, website, social media and regular networking events; NX for the next generation encompassing events and a new magazine launching later this year; Oxfordshire Voice, a public / private sector collaboration which debates the key issues facing Oxfordshire businesses and aims to find solutions to help the private sector; and for the past six years, we have been running Business in Oxford (BIO), an annual event which provides Oxfordshire businesses with the opportunity to present and exhibit to over 500 delegates.

NEXUS will give a wide range of organisations (see here for full list) the opportunity to benefit from all of our platforms by partnering with a Supporter. Supporters will be able to nominate an Affiliate that they already know or choose from a list of potential Affiliates to be published in September.

NEXUS is designed to grow a spirit of collaboration, sharing and support for those organisations which might not otherwise have the opportunity to secure the benefits as outlined here for 12 months and will culminate with the NEXUS Awards at our 7th annual BIO event in June 2020.

Good News & Support

Our Affiliates will also be able to submit any great news stories coming out of their partnership during the year and we will promote these stories in B4 Magazine, our e-Newsletters, social media and on our B4 website.

All Affiliates will also be provided with ample opportunities to make the most of their partnerships with regular workshops throughout the year at B4’s offices where Affiliates can learn how best to present and exhibit at BIO2020 and shout about their involvement in the lead up to the event and also make the most of their partnerships.
