Small business is one of the most important components of our growing economy. Our Chamber is dedicated to providing these critical drivers of our economy with resources and opportunities for increased success.
Small Business Association Office of Advocacy-funded data and research shows that small businesses create more than half of the new private non-farm gross domestic product, and they create 60 to 80 percent of the net new jobs.
The Chamber’s Small Business leadership is focused on sustaining a fertile environment for small business growth. Programming for small businesses is designed to do the following:
- Help define and navigate resources available for small business from start-up and business growth to exit strategy
- Boost impact and influence with ideas from successful entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and top caliber keynoters
Chamber investment offers direct access to hundreds of fellow small business owners, many of whom are facing the same challenges. This environment creates camaraderie and mutual dedication to helping peers’ businesses grow.
