Business Members
These are people who are interested to build a business based
on their own ideas and innovations - and so are seeking like-
minded individuals to discuss them with as well as help do. They
are also typically seeking those who can help manage delivery of
the products or services associated with their idea, invention or
innovation - and can help them both envision the concept so as
to enable delivery of it cost-effectively and efficiently, as well as in
line with how the concept meets a need or set of requirements in
the marketplace.

7C Alliance assists such members in providing advice for the
principal of the business so that they, and any dependents that
they may have, can rest assured that they are supporting
themselves effectively in the first instance. The Business
Member's business concept itself (aka their "brain child") is then
looked at after considering what they themselves need to survive.
This analysis of the Business Member's needs for survival is
done in the same way as done for Senior Associate Members.

The following are key principles and values of how 7C Alliance
supports Business Members:
