Building Businesses and Changing Lives since 1974
We empower our small business entrepreneurs and professionals by creating opportunities for marketing, networking, procurement, and referral-based business growth. We also collaborate with other non-profits and engage with business and civic leaders to support policies that foster a more inclusive and welcoming business community, thus creating greater opportunities for our member businesses.
We create events, workshops, and seminars in partnership with our Corporate Partners and other non-profits which help our members develop their business skills and expertise. In addition, we partner with other organizations, championing LGBTQ issues, in order to foster communication, collaboration, and educational opportunities.
We advocate for positive economic, social, and political change for the Bay Area LGBTQ business community, as well as addressing key business issues concerning the LGBTQ community overall. We have an unwavering commitment to advocate for and create positive change towards LGBTQ economic equality.
