Business Resources

Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce is here to offer networking, education and business resources to help your small business grow.

Are you a start-up or new in town? Check out our Doing Business in Sacramento and Starting a Business sections for a list of agencies and resources to help you get up and running. Want to learn more about available resources or develop new skills? The Chamber offers regularly scheduled, professional development and educational programs presented by our members and community partners on topics ranging from business finance and budgeting to government contracting to succession planning.

For member businesses that are at least 51% LGBT-owned, Rainbow Chamber offers LGBT Business Enterprise certification through our affiliation with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The $400 certification cost is waived for Rainbow Chamber members. Increasingly, Fortune 500 companies and federal and state government agencies want to do business with certified LGBTBEs. Our Chamber works with many of them to host workshops and events connecting you with the buyers and supplier diversity professionals.

Each year the Chamber honors an LGBT or allied business owner as its Business Leader of the Year, presented at the annual Awards and Scholarship Dinner each September. The honoree is chosen by a committee based on business success, community leadership and contributions to the Chamber and LGBT community.
