About Desert United

With the aim to aid entrepreneurs during a time of economic hardship, Desert United was founded in 2007 by Mario Hernandez. To support local businesses and professionals across all industries, he created a network that brought together people from different sectors. Retailers, hospitality, professional, service providers and even nonprofits and college students – with one unified purpose: making connections between each other to strengthen communities through business relationships as well as friendships. This year marks 16 years since its inception for Desert United Network Community; offering access to a comprehensive business directory so they can continue building meaningful ties within their respective fields.

Desert United Network Community is a platform dedicated to supporting small and local businesses, as well as professionals across all industries. Our online business directory offers access to an extensive range of resources, enabling subscribers to build meaningful professional ties within their respective fields and drive more business exposure.

We understand that local and small businesses often struggle to get the same recognition and exposure as larger-scale companies, which is why we strive to aid them in connecting with each other on a more personal level. Through our business directory, subscribers can access valuable information about other businesses in their industry, find new clients or partners, and even collaborate on projects together. All this without the costs associated with traditional marketing campaigns such as print media or advertising.

At Desert United Network Community we are proud of our commitment to the community. We provide a variety of affordable subscription plans for membership so that subscribers can support each other and increase visibility for their own businesses. Moreover, all proceeds from these subscriptions go towards helping local businesses gain more exposure at no extra cost.

Whether you’re an individual looking for networking opportunities, or an established company wanting to expand your outreach goals – Desert United Network Community has something for everyone! Join us today and start building relationships within your field while driving your business forward.
