Somerset County Business Partnership

360 Grove Street

Mission:

Our Mission is to lead the business community to a prosperous and sustainable future. 

We achieve our mission in two ways:

We deliver a program of services that assists our members in growing their business. We call our approach “your platform for success”.  We provide our members with the ability to expand their circle of influence, gain critical educational programs, and advocate for a better business environment. We are known as a Chamber that is innovative, “green” and accessible.

The Somerset County Business Partnership also serves the entire community. We partner with the Somerset County Freeholders to deliver economic development services through our 501(c)3 Foundation. Our public-private partnership is effective; we recently completed a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) for Somerset County based on what the private sector needs for job creation and investment.

History:

The Somerset County Business Partnership is a Chamber of Commerce serving the businesses and residents of Somerset County. Our history as a Chamber goes back to 1919. In 2002, our Chamber merged with two other countywide business organizations to create the Somerset County Business Partnership, giving the Somerset County a single voice to represent their interests. 

The vision that led to the creation of the Somerset County Business Partnership still inspires us. We continue to believe in the power of a partnership between the private, public, and non-profit sectors speaking with a united voice to advance a strategic agenda. We remain committed to achieving the goal of economic vitality in Somerset County. 

In 2010, the Somerset County Business Partnership responded to the Great Recession by updating our strategic plan and rededicating ourselves to help our members and our community compete in the global economy.
