SWAT Networking was founded in 2010 during the recession. It was a way for local businesswomen to get together to promote their businesses, and discuss challenges they were facing. Over the years, SWAT became known for its networking lunches, and grew to five chapters across three counties.
In 2020, SWAT Networking celebrated its 10 year anniversary. Amidst another challenging time for businesses, SWAT got new management—and a new outlook—on doing business in a completely changed world.
Today, Executive Director Lisa Comeau is working on expanding SWAT's offerings for its members to go beyond the networking lunches to include online networking, online and in person roundtable discussions, educational talks, and creative partnerships to support members in their professions, and to be a resource and support system for our members.
The business world is forever evolving, and SWAT Networking is evolving with it to accommodate our members, and to doing business in today's world. We're not just lunches anymore.
