St. Matthews Chamber of Commerce and Community Pride Breakfast
The St. Matthews neighborhood is known for it’s high number of locally owned shops and community-based businesses. In a city such as ours, communities such as St. Matthews are able to thrive through Louisvillians who understand the importance of shopping locally. Not only are our city’s consumers helping support our local businesses but the tight knit small business community works together to promote one another. The St. Matthews local business owners and prospective business people have created an inner circle to strengthen the community’s local business.
The St. Matthew Chamber of Commerce has developed an inviting and helpful central location for local business owners to explore their options and grow their business. With a variety of regular and special events open to members and nonmembers, the St. Matthews Chamber of Commerce is an excellent resource for anyone with an established business in the community or someone just starting out. For nonmembers the best event would be the 5:05 After Hours Networking event. Every fourth Tuesday of the month a member holds a meet and greet event at their place of business. The event usually includes appetizers, drinks, door Prizes and a lot of networking. This event is a great way to meet other business people in the community and pick their brains. If you decide to become a member their is a slew of other events available to you including Networking at Noon and the Think Tanks.
