The Alliance helps businesses to strengthen their fundamentals through a network of pro bono, reputable advisors. Free consultations help business owners to identify opportunities, resolve problems, and make important decisions that impact their businesses in areas such as:
COVID-19 Emergency Assistance

Build & Train Your Team
E-Commerce and Digital Marketing
Permits and Licenses
Finding a Location and Lease Negotiation
Procurement & Contracting
Startup businesses often require additional assistance with creating a startup business plan, determining the most appropriate legal entity to establish, locating startup capital, acquiring needed permits and licenses, establishing a business checking account and accounting system, forecasting sales, and generating a revenue stream.
Fostering a vibrant, sustainable community includes achieving an inclusive economy that offers prosperity for all participants. Toward that end, The Alliance has established special interest groups to provide additional assistance to members of traditionally disadvantaged demographic groups, including Onyx African American Business Hub, Adelante LatinX Business Hub, and Ellevate Women’s Business Hub.
San Fernando Valley Rising Strong
To stimulate consumer spending at Valley-based small businesses, promote their economic resilience, and strengthen our local economy, The Alliance and the United Chambers of Commerce of the San Fernando Valley invite local, independently-owned businesses to apply to be featured in our buy local social media campaign. Businesses must be located in one of the following areas: City of Burbank, City of Calabasas, City of Glendale, City of Los Angeles’s San Fernando Valley, or the City of San Fernando. We are seeking to spotlight companies that are open for business in person or online, that represent the rich diversity of our small business community, and that demonstrate commitment to employee, customer, and public health.
