Our Business Partners
The Black Chamber of Orange County is celebrating over 32 years of service and impact promoting our mission to work with both private and public sector partners to economically empower and sustain Black business, entrepreneurship, and economic development.
We have championed and lead the way to provide access to information, resources and support that connects our Black and Ethnic businesses to opportunities for growth and development.
Over this past year, the Black Chamber took a business leadership role to ensure that when veterans return home from the battlefront that they will find an opportunity to continue their education, learn new skills, find a place in the workplace or obtain resources to start a business.
We worked tirelessly with community partners to encourage underserved youths to stay in school, obtain a college degree and receive mentoring to find a valuable place in this competitive technologically demanding workforce.
As we move forward this year we are committed to the continuation of the opportunity to enhance, improve, and grow your business.
Again, thanks for your continued support and participation. We couldn’t have reached this milestone without your support. It is much appreciated and needed!
