The application deadline for 2020 submissions has past. Please check back with us in the summer of 2021 for more information on the next opportunity to engage with the Forward Together program.


The Georgia Chamber of Commerce is proud to offer complimentary Chamber memberships to small, diverse businesses based in Georgia.

By providing small businesses with unique access to community resources, networking and business events, educational assets, and other valued tools, a sponsored membership aligns with the Chamber’s vision for promoting diversity through leadership programs with an intentional focus on diversity and inclusion as part of Georgia’s small business ecosystem.

Eight Memberships Sponsored by Fiserv

Fiserv, a leading global provider of payments and financial services technology solutions, is proud to sponsor this initiative by funding eight Georgia Chamber memberships for small, diverse businesses in Georgia. Fiserv is committed to supporting diversity and inclusion both inside and outside the company. Fiserv has significant operations in Georgia and is a proud technology provider to thousands of small businesses across the state through its Clover point-of-sale platform. This sponsorship aligns directly with Fiserv commitments to serve as an advocate for diversity, inclusion, and small business success.

Small, diverse businesses interested in applying for a sponsored membership can be Black-owned, Asian-owned, Latino-owned, women-owned, owned by a US military veteran, owned by a member of the LGBTQ community, or owned by a person with disabilities.
