    The entire community is invited to join the event this Saturday from 3:00-6:00PM at the collective realty, 8278 1/2 Santa Monica Blvd West Hollywood.

    The West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce launched of the WHSBF in April, 2023. The Foundation’s mission is to develop equitable and inclusive opportunities for underrepresented communities and the economic growth, urban infrastructure enhancements for small and minority owned businesses.

    This Foundation will be instrumental in developing much needed diversity, inclusion, and equity in our business landscape for those entrepreneurs and leaders who have always wanted to fulfill their dreams to open a business or excel in upper management.

    WHSBF programing covers leadership development, DEI workshops, solopreneur programs (including entertainers), and additional programming being developed to support the mission of the Foundation. One of the Foundation’s first tasks looking at solopreneur opportunities for independent entertainers, creating a pathway for artists, drag performers, go-go dancers, poets, comedians, actors, dancers, musicians, etc. to operate as recognized businesses. The Chamber believes this lack of agency in business acumen can make it difficult to effectively market and promote themselves, professionally represent the product and services they provide, and expect fair compensation negotiations.
