The Delaware Small Business Chamber(DSBC)  is focused on supporting local small businesses throughout the state of Delaware and the surrounding areas. Our belief is that small business should be considered around 50 employees or less and not the 250 to 500 as defined my many other groups. We offer programs and opportunities for small business owners to meet and work with their peers to help start, build and maintain their companies.

Our members consist of these small businesses as well as larger organizations that want to work with the backbone of the future – Small Business.

DSBC will also help businesses with developing programs and events that will help member businesses showcase their services & products to their peers, their potential consumers, and to larger business to encourage the bigger companies to do business locally. For more information, visit
