• A Business Development Chamber?
    What is it? What does it do?

  • Business development is the creation of long-term value for an organization from customers, markets, and relationships.

    At its heart, business development is all about figuring out how the interactions of those forces combine together to create opportunities for growth.

    Long-Term Value:
    Business development is about creating opportunities of value that persist over the long-term, which keep the floodgates open so that value can flow indefinitely. Thinking about business development as a means to creating long-term value is the only true way to succeed in consistently growing an organization.

    Customers:
    Find new ones and extract more value from current ones.

    Markets:
    Figure out where new customers “live” (both geographically and in terms of “buying mindset“) and find a way to reach them. 

    Relationships:
    Build and leverage relationships founded on trust and integrity to facilitate opportunities.

    As a Business Development Chamber of Commerce, we connect businesses with opportunities, providing long-term value, creating and building upon new and existing customers and relationships, while providing opportunities to expand  their markets. Long-Term Value is key to the viability of the Peninsula business community. By concentrating our efforts on the present and future business community, the Peninsula will become a premier business community.
