Past Tours

These Pay-it-Forward Networking Tours were not possible without our generous corporate sponsors who dedicated time and resources to the cause of “Pay-it-Forward Networking Programs”.  We were highly encouraged and very impressed with all of our tour sponsors and could not thank all the companies enough for their hospitality and professionalism.  Everything is organized with the Pay-it-Forward spirit.

We are open to any industry, any business and any organization to expand and diversify our thinking.  It’s simple to organize, fun, encouraging, and win-win for all parties involved. If you would like to sponsor a tour or coordinate a tour please contact us.
