Dedicated to helping small business members thrive
through networking, training and counseling
If you’re a small business, you’ll feel right at home at the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce – over 80 percent of our business members have 5 or fewer employees. This is why we developed the Small Business Success Center (SBSC), which is dedicated to assisting small business members with maintaining and expanding their business.
The SBSC is a place to solve all your small business needs; from start-up to going public and beyond. Use the SBSC as your source for counseling, planning, knowledge and research to get your business going in the right direction. Small businesses power the Carlsbad-area economy and we are here to help. See the list of services we offer:
One-on-one counseling to discuss goals, chamber involvement, strengths, weaknesses and resources with regular follow-ups and on-going interaction to insure success. We also offer SCORE counseling, a national association of active and retired business men and women who volunteer to share their expertise with small businesses, as well as new business start-ups.
Member introductions, presentation of chamber resources, outside resources, business referrals, and marketing opportunities.
Evaluation of the most effective activities for your business, introductions at events, introduction of referral partners, and invitations to small group meetings.
Ongoing workshops for small business members targeted at starting a business and improving overall business and networking skills.
