About The Chamber


Our Mission

We attract, support, and grow business through advocacy, economic development, and business development.

The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce is San Francisco’s most vibrant business network. A global economic force, San Francisco is the most inclusive and passionate city for innovation and entrepreneurship, and we work hard on its behalf.


Our Story

Founded during the Gold Rush in May 1850, the Chamber has been a leading champion of entrepreneurialism and economic prosperity for more than 172 years. From the transcontinental railroad to the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, we have a long history of championing the initiatives that make San Francisco a global landmark.

Our Partners

Chamber partners include businesses of every size, industry and neighborhood across the City and region, as well as other business organizations, community benefit districts, and industry associations. We and our partners represent the nearly 250,000 employees of San Francisco businesses and their innovative work.
