What our members

are saying…

Very Fresh and Open

“I would like to say that we are very pleased to have joined DSBC. It has given us an opportunity to meet other business owners, to work with, to network with, to share ideas with. I find the Top 6 Mingles events very fresh and open, maybe my favorite part so far.”

Looks Out For Your Best Interest

“How I feel this chamber is different than others:

  • All business are small business owners
  • You get to interact with the owners who can make decisions, not the marketing person
  • Your membership fee is yearly, this includes everything. You don’t have to pay to go to every event.
  • They have small breakout groups to get to know the owners on a more personal level
  • By being listed on their directory, helps to improve your SEO on Google

If you are a small business owner, I highly recommend the Delaware Small Business Chamber. They are looking out for your best interest, you. Everyone is supportive of one another and helping each other’s businesses grow. If you are looking for change, become the change and support local small business.”

Very Effective Chamber for Small Business Owners

I find the DSBC is a very effective chamber for small business owners that really want to network long-term with other business owners. In my brief year with the organization, I have established more meaningful relationships than I have with any other over the past 7 years. Finally, I feel like I am part of the group, and not an anonymous member.

Helped me Find my Passion

My business teacher told me about a scholarship opportunity with the Delaware Small Business Chamber of Commerce in the spring of 2017. I figured a scholarship would greatly aid me with SATs around the corner and surely these presumptions were proven true. I wrote my essay on a business start up plan for a pharmaceutical representative training program because I am passionate about medicine. I think that writing about something I was passionate about was the key to writing an impactful piece. Applying for the scholarship not only provided me with Huntington Learning Center’s vital tools to increase my math SAT sub score by 130 points, but connect me with other businesses in my area to help me find my passion and drive future endeavors to follow aspirations in the medicinal field.

Goes Above and Beyond

We have been members of the Delaware Small Business Chamber for five years, and I cannot say enough about this Chamber! Bob and his team go above and beyond to support, uplift, and educate the small business owner. They are also very responsive and genuinely care about the challenges of starting and owning a small business. I recommend the Delaware Small Business Chamber very highly!

A Great Mix of Events

I’ve been a member for a few months, now, and I’ve attended a number of great events, most of them free of charge. These guys do such a great job of switching up the time and location of events, with a great mix of social and educational themes. There are wonderful smaller scale networking meetings that are great opportunities to get better acquainted with other business owners. Kudos to Bob Older and his team, they’ve built a great resource for business, and a great value.

Learned New Things, Made Longterm Friends

“Having been involved in the Delaware Small Business Chamber since its inception, I’ve been pleased to see its continued growth and the implementation of programs that aren’t offered by other similar organizations. I think one of the best of these has been the 6-Top Mingle which brings six business owners together over breakfast or lunch. I’ve learned new things about people and their businesses, and many of them have been friends or acquaintances for years.”

A Variety of Tools for Success

Bob and his team provide small business owners with a huge variety of tools, resources and networking to help my business become more successful.

Always Looking for Opportunities to Help Local Community

“Just wanted you to know what this Chamber has done for my business. I have made many contacts through the Delaware Small Business Chamber. Some have resulted in business already, and some are businesses that I am still developing relationships with that will help my business in the future. The important thing is, these are mostly business owners. Which means these people who make the decisions so the results come quicker. Not only do you have monthly events, that are FREE, but you also give your members an opportunity to network through a process called 6-top Mingles. Which allows the members to choose one the groups to attend. There is a breakfast group of 6, a lunch group, or dinner group. We have options through this process that fit our schedule. Bob, I like the way you are always looking for opportunities to help the local community. For instance, creating a scholarship fund with revenue generated from the consumer Expo to give to a couple of students from local business related colleges/Universities. I am one of the first members of this chamber, and am glad and proud that I decided to join. Thanks for everything you do.”
