The Somali American Chamber of Commerce
The Somali American Chamber of Commerce was historically founded in Columbus, Ohio circa 2003 by a group of Somali entrepreneurs and businessmen from a variety of different backgrounds – including merchants, professionals, developers, retailers and restaurant owners, as well as those involved in trade associations and social service organizations. All were united by the common interest in serving and doing business with the growing community of 75,000 Somalis located in and around Central Ohio.
The Mission of the Somali American Chamber of Commerce is to work proactively on behalf of its members and constituents. It aims to be an indispensable organization for the advocacy of economic well being, community development and quality of life. Upholding the highest standards of conduct and excellence, it is the goal of the SACC to assist the Columbus Somali Community with integration into the business environment and culture which exists in Central Ohio.
