Goal:  Stimulate business growth through innovation, development, training and attraction

Growth ensures long-term vitality and resilience.  Entrepreneurship can be nurtured through an ecosystem of resources that support the commercialization of new ideas. Business Growth is a              
primary focus of the Chamber and encompasses existing business and business attraction.

Some of the Chamber programs in the Growth Focus Area are:  

  • Small Business Academy
  • Small Business Committee
  • Business Attraction Program
  • Business Retention & Expansion Program
  • President's Roundtable
  • Incentives Task Force
  • Economic Development Team

**Most of the committees in this focus area are by appointment; however, we welcome member participation in the Small Business Committee.  This committee helps plan the Tuesday Topic seminar series as well as planning and coordinating StartUp Jefferson City entrepreneur events.
