What are Business communities?
This list of communities is geared towards business owners, and range from communities focused on independent businesses, all the way to large scale corporations. If there's a business question you have, you are sure to find someone that can help you answer it in one of these communities.
About Online Communities on Independent Platforms
These are online communities that are hosted on their own platform, and not a part of a social network like Reddit/Facebook/LinkedIn, or communication platform like Slack and Discord. Although they may utilize community software like circle.so to implement the features of their community, they have their own brand and identity.
