The mission of the Silicon Valley/Santa Clara County Black Chamber is to create, identify and/or expand economic development opportunities for African Americans and minorities in Silicon Valley, California.
The Silicon Valley Black Chamber of Commerce is more than an organization for just businesses, it?s an integral part of the economic development fiber of our community. When we speak of economic development we mean more than entrepreneurship. Although entrepreneurship is vital to many of our programs, we understand that the creation of jobs and the securing of these jobs is really what economic development is all about.
Money has to flow into our community for our community to truly prosper. Membership is open to all individuals, seniors and youth, organizations and groups or associations that support our mission, along with business owners. The chamber serves to create, identify or expand economic development opportunities for African American and minority businesses.
