The foremost growth and networking organization for business owners and leaders in Greater Los Angeles.
Our benefits help your business thrive.
Get brand exposure
One of the biggest challenges for business leaders is increasing brand awareness. Forbes Los Angeles Business Council members have a unique opportunity to share their stories with a wider audience on the world's most influential business platform, Forbes.com.
Members are selected for the Council based on their depth and diversity of experience, then invited to contribute their insights to Forbes' CommunityVoice.
Allow our concierges to help
Business leaders have to wear many hats. A helping hand (or two) can go far in helping you succeed.
That's where the Forbes Los Angeles Business Council concierges come in — consider them members of your own team. Email, chat, or call them anytime to find answers, introductions, resources, and more.
Attend exclusive events and experiences
Our expert events team plans gatherings for members of Forbes Los Angeles Business Council and VIP guests. At these events, members have the opportunity to strengthen existing connections and build new ones. We also provide access to exclusive art, charity, fashion, sports, film, and music experiences.
Build your community of support
Nothing is more important to a business leader than community. Your community gets you through the challenges and introduces you to new opportunities.
Forbes Los Angeles Business Council members join the area's brightest and most generous community of business leaders. Unlike other professional groups, we select members who are interested in giving as much as they get. In our online forum and at our exclusive events, members pose questions and get fast, smart answers. They openly share opportunities and collaborate on new partnerships or ideas.
Stand apart from the competition
Membership in Forbes Los Angeles Business Council is based on an application and committee review. Business leaders who receive an invitation to join have proven themselves a step above the competition. Members can showcase that accomplishment to customers, partners, and peers with Forbes branded press releases, digital badges, and custom awards.
Get exclusive discounts on services you use
When you're growing a business, every dollar matters. We've secured volume discounts on everything from software (back office, payment processing, marketing, and so on) to travel to (much deserved) entertainment and more.
We even help members sift through the options for business products or services. Our concierges will help you narrow down our already curated list of partners to find the right provider at an exclusively low rate.
Access your benefits on-the-go
All of these benefits and more are available from web- and mobile-optimized dashboards. Log in to find a searchable directory of fellow members, a marketplace of partner deals, writing guidance, free education resources, events calendars, and more. Plus, chat our concierge team right from the dashboard anytime you have a question.
