Small Business Council

The Florida Chamber recognizes that small business is big business. The Small Business Council is comprised of small business members of the Florida Chamber committed to being the voice of small business in growing Florida’s diverse and innovation economy. While issues like taxes, regulation, and insurance impact all businesses, small business especially struggle in areas like access to capital and knowledge of key tools and resources available for business growth. The Small Business Council will tackle these issues and educate members on issues that impact their business, while empowering members to engage on these issues at the local, state and federal levels.

“Small businesses are the backbone of Florida’s economy, accounting for 99.8% of Florida's business establishments and playing an essential role in growing Florida from the 16th to the 10th largest economy in the world by 2030. The Florida Chamber Small Business Council provides a unified voice for all small businesses in our mission to secure Florida’s future, working directly with state and national leaders to tackle important legislation that impacts small business and educates these leaders on issues that might impact their business.”
