1209 Enterprise, LLC is a business networking organization that assists business owners, entrepreneurs and industry professionals in the growth of their business. Based on the ideology of its co-founders, Frank Waters and Henry Nelson, small and start-up businesses should have access to high-level professional services that they can afford. Thus, 1209 Enterprise made this idea a reality. 1209 Enterprise offers services in finance, marketing, printing, web design, business education and networking at amazing rates.
In line with their vision, this dynamic duo planned networking events for serious minded business people with high profile guest speakers, and charged a menial admission of $12.09. It is that ideology and vision that motivated Waters and Nelson to continue to build. Three years later, the 1209 Affair collaborated with George C. Fraser of FraserNet, the largest black networking company, and presented New York’s SuccessNet Quarterly. SuccessNet Quarterly organizes networking event that brings out the best and brightest speakers in America to empower, uplift and motivate entrepreneurs.
Of the 1209 Enterprise, LLC entities, the 1209 Affair and the1209affair.com website are the most noticeable of the company. The powerful and effective networking affairs have been the catapult of the company’s success and the website, which has an active online community of over 2,000 members, has played a strategic role in the success by allowing members the opportunity to share necessary resources amongst the network.
Along with SuccessNet Quarterly, the 1209 Affair hosts hugely successful corporate networking affairs. These affairs are either free or priced moderately. 1209 Affair features high profile guest speakers from various aspects of business. The networking affairs allow 1209 Enterprise members to create successful business relations. The goal for these events is to educate and enlighten 1209 Enterprise members while allowing them to create long lasting and successful business relations through networking.
1209 Enterprise has taken business networking into the new age with their website, the1209affair.com, which includes a social networking component. 1209 members are able to interact with one another and foster business relationships that afford them greater access to resources and access to a larger market. The1209affair.com offers savings on services offered by 1209 Enterprise through their subsidiary 1209 Arts.

The 1209 Enterprise offers business services that saved its members over $150,000 in a span of 2 years.
