U.S. Small Business Administration and California Chamber of Commerce Announce New Collaboration


Helping More California Entrepreneurs Start Up, Scale Up & Succeed


SACRAMENTO – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and California Chamber of Commerce (CalChamber) today announced a new Strategic Alliance supporting California’s 4 million small businesses.


“This new strategic alliance with CalChamber, which has served California business owners since 1890, will help the Small Business Administration better reach and support this state’s entrepreneurs,” said SBA’s Region IX Administrator Michael Vallante.  “There has never been a better time to start or grow a small business, and the SBA’s partnership with CalChamber will help more California entrepreneurs use our programs to get their small businesses going, and keep them growing.”


“The U.S. Small Business Administration empowers California entrepreneurs and small business owners with the resources and support they need to start, grow and  expand,” said CalChamber President and Chief Executive Officer Allan Zaremberg. “This new partnership helps us serve the millions of California entrepreneurs that make this state’s economy the fifth largest in the world,” said Zaremberg.


The SBA’s six California Offices will work with CalChamber to strengthen and expand small business development in California, including in rural areas which support important industries such as timber and natural resources, and in Opportunity Zones which spur growth in low-income communities.


The new partnership will kick off in July with a free training webinar for California small business owners on state labor and employment laws.
