What People Say About Us
"Joining the Greater Irvine Chamber is one of the best decisions that I’ve made for the growth of my business relationships. In addition to being a member, I joined the Chamber's Monday Leads Group with some AMAZING, LIKE-MINDED, and DRIVEN people (at no extra charge). On top of that, I decided to become an Ambassador for the Greater Irvine Chamber. I’m truly excited about what the future holds for the expansion of my business as it pertains to my involvement with the Greater Irvine Chamber."

"The Greater Irvine Chamber and City of Hope Orange County are committed to passionately advocating for the interests of the Orange County community. The Chamber is focused on improving the community’s economic health, and City of Hope Orange County strives to improve cancer health—it’s a partnership that goes hand in hand."
“Forte Medical embarked on a mission to Irvine hoping that we would find not only enthusiasm for our work, but support, contacts, and avenues into launching HealthTech into the U.S. We have not been disappointed. In the last 18 months, we have formed a hugely important joint venture with an Irvine business that will transform our offer and found valuable opportunities that point to tangible success in the U.S. The Chamber’s Irvine Gateway team is indefatigable, prescient, and kind. What more could we have asked for in a U.S. business support partner?”
“I had explored other ecosystems before selecting Irvine as the base for company expansion in U.S. Before Irvine, I had not met any other ecosystem with so many business leaders and professionals who voluntarily go the extra mile to assist, advise, support, and signpost an outsider. The Chamber team is the backbone of this enterprise. From day one they organised and facilitated introductions that equipped me with knowledge and understanding of what it takes to establish and grow our company here. They are my mentors, colleagues, and friends. We have already created local partnerships and started devising sales and marketing campaigns. I no longer feel an outsider but as part of the ecosystem helping other small-to-medium enterprises to settle and grow in Irvine.”
