Committed to Helping Small Business on Chicago's Southwest Side

The Southwest Business Network Story

President of the Southwest Business Network, Rene' Velazquez, was a former owner of a successful printing company. He found himself deeply concerned about the struggles faced by small business owners on the southwest side of Chicago when it came to marketing their businesses. Witnessing their frustration firsthand, he couldn't ignore the need for guidance and support in navigating the ever-evolving world of marketing. Driven by his passion to uplift his community, Rene made a life-changing decision: start a marketing agency.

With unwavering determination, Rene' took a leap of faith, leaving behind his printing business to embark on a new path. Armed with his extensive entrepreneurial experience and a profound understanding of the local market, he founded his agency in 2011. Rene's sole mission was to provide affordable and customized marketing solutions to the small business owners who needed it the most.

News of Rene's agency quickly spread throughout the community. They found solace in a compassionate leader who genuinely understood their struggles. Today, Rene' and his team pour their hearts and souls into their work, offering personalized strategies, branding expertise, social media campaigns, and website optimization to their clients. Through their relentless efforts, Rene' and the Southwest Business Network team transform businesses, enabling them to attract new customers, boost sales, and establish strong online presences.

Rene's journey to establish his marketing agency became a powerful testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the profound influence that one individual can have on a community. His story serves as a poignant reminder that success is not solely measured by personal achievements, but by the positive impact we make in the lives of others.

I was fortunate to be referred to Southwest Business Network by a business associate, who had used their services. I am so glad he connected me to them.

Their service was excellent.

However what I was most impressed with was, the people's professionalism. They addressed every concern of mine eloquently and perfectly.

Just like they were recommended to me.

I proudly recommend them to anyone, who may have a need for their services.
