Encouraging, developing and supporting Palo Alto’s economic vitality since 1910

As the area’s leading voice of business since 1910, the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce speaks on issues of importance to local and global businesses. Our membership ranges from large Fortune 500 firms to small, family-owned businesses. They share a common understanding: protecting and improving the Palo Alto business climate is the key to our future economic prosperity.

A strong local economy provides premier business connections and exposure to companies, law firms, venture capital firms and service providers that represent millions of employees around the world.

With our members continued support, we can ensure that Palo Alto and the Silicon Valley remain the best choice for business and a great place to live, work, play and raise a family.
