Educational Courses and Certification
We’re partnering with the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) to offer free educational courses designed to help LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses. From navigating your cash flow to marketing in a digital world, these guided sessions focus on addressing immediate and long-term financial needs and building resiliency. Learn more and register for the courses.
Together, we’re also certifying 100 LGBTQ+ business enterprises. Chamber membership and certification fees will be sponsored by our Office of LGBTQ+ Affairs and distributed through the NGLCC. Becoming certified as an LGBT Business Enterprise® (LGBTBE®) can open the door to new business growth opportunities.

Supporting Entrepreneurial Growth
We are proud to collaborate with organizations that support the LGBTQ+ entrepreneurial community, including StartOut and BØWIE.
StartOut is the leading U.S.-based nonprofit organization to support LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs. Their mission is to increase the number, diversity and impact of LGBTQ+ founders and amplify their stories to drive the economic empowerment of the community.
BØWIE is the first entrepreneurial incubator dedicated to queer and feminist projects in Europe. They offer training, coaching and peer support to queer and feminist creators and showcase projects to raise awareness, fight stereotypes and inspire change.
