Center for Small Business Success
Small business powers L.A.'s economy. The Chamber is proud to serve small businesses through a variety of tailored programs and services.
In addition, to our ongoing business and professional development programs, the Chamber offers special programs tailored to meet the needs of small and growing businesses. They include:
The Small Business Council brings together small business members to discuss common issues and help identify how the Chamber can develop innovative and value-driven programs to meet their needs.
With Small Business Owners Roundtable, you have the chance to discuss with peers how to set the stage for business growth and explore measurable tools to use in the process. To participate, you must be a Chamber member and the owner of a small business. This is a membership value opportunity so there's no cost to participate - just an investment of time and a personal commitment.
The L.A. Area Chamber recognizes that now more than ever, nonprofits are an vital part of the community. We stand ready to provide them with the resources they need to not only grow, but to also thrive and accomplish their goals. The Nonprofit Council provides nonprofit member organizations with a venue to network, exchange ideas, collaborate and discuss public policy issues impacting the nonprofit community.
This Power Hour Series offers insightful presentations from industry leaders on successful business practices to help members grow their business.

SMALL BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
10,000 Small Businesses is a $500 million initiative that will unlock the growth and job-creation potential of 10,000 small businesses across the United States through greater access to business education, mentors and networks, and financial capital. It is based on the broadly held view of leading experts that a combination of education, capital and support services best addresses the barriers to growth for small businesses.
With the Chamber’s online business education courses, members can learn valuable business skills and work through relevant, current matters that business owners and employees have to address daily. From compliance and risk mitigation to customer service, members can choose from a large list of affordable and user-friendly classes.
