At NGLCC, we recognize that a growth business needs not only a strong local network where business owners live and work but also business certification and access to all the strategic growth opportunities offered by our national organization.
The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) started in November 2002, when Justin Nelson and Chance Mitchell realized no one had really considered the economic equality of LGBT people or the impact economics could have on the equality movement. The two co-founders sought to showcase that LGBT people were business owners, employers, taxpayers, providers of healthcare – that they were a vibrant, essential part of the small business engine that makes the U.S. economy run and therefore, deserved a place at the equality table.
