About Us

We nurture minority-owned businesses because we believe in a statewide economy that is inclusive and representative of all Californians.

We’ll Solve Your Biggest Business Challenges, Together.

What We Do

The California Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (CalAsian Chamber) identifies and addresses the most pressing challenges faced by Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI)-owned businesses across the state by mobilizing resources to their owners.

We give diverse small businesses a voice.

Founded in 2010, the California Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce is the largest statewide ethnic chamber of commerce with a mission to grow and strengthen AAPI-owned businesses through leadership, training, and advocacy.

Our programs and workshops open inclusive new pathways for AAPI businesses to reach new markets and expand operations.

Why We Matter

The AAPI population continues to expand its economic and political influence in California. As the fastest growing minority group in the U.S., with California having the largest share of AAPIs in the country, the power we have as a community gets stronger every single day.

Our mission is supported by dozens of corporate and public organizations looking to create a more inclusive California economy.
