A History Of Delivering The Capital

On June 20, 1938, the Washington, DC Chamber of Commerce was incorporated in the nation’s capital. Initially formed to provide services for African–American businesses in the city, the name of the organization was changed to the Negro Chamber of Commerce in 1946, to reflect the unique needs of black businesses.

In 1956 our leadership re-evaluated the needs of businesses in the city and re-established itself as the District of Columbia Chamber of Commerce. With the new name came a new direction, and the Chamber expanded its operations to address the needs of all businesses in the District of Columbia.

The DC Chamber has continued to uphold its commitment to delivering the capital to businesses and citizens. We provide invaluable tools to help businesses develop, and it leverages relationships with key contacts in the DC Council and the Federal government to improve the business climate and attract new businesses to the District.

In this week's episode of The DMV Business Show we have Angela Franco, President and CEO of DC Chamber of Commerce. Their mission is to be the most valuable resource and leading advocate for businesses in the nations capital, Washington, DC. She was born in Berkeley, California and moved back to Bogota, Colombia when she was one year old. Entrepreneurial at a young age, she started selling jewelry at 11 years old and created Christmas cards that she sold to her family and neighbors. Learned about margin in a business when her father was her first investor and with those funds she was able to purchase jewelry wholesale and sell them retail. Angela finished all of her schooling and Masters in Colombia deciding to move to the United States in her early 30's and start from scratch in a new country. It was a humbling experience even though she had years of experience in the financial industry back home. She now has decades of knowledge working with various financial institutions and business chambers in executive leadership roles. Angela mentions how if you focus on building a career you are always going to have a job. She shares the strategic plan the D.C. Chamber of Commerce has developed with their four main pillars, government relations, programs, communication, and marketing - focusing on helping local businesses grow! Angela talks about the the value in having mentors and your network, and how you can cultivate them!
