About the Commission

The Small Business Commission (SBC) oversees the Office of Small Business, which is the City's central point of information and referral for entrepreneurs and small businesses located in the City & County of San Francisco. By championing "business-friendly" policies, marketing the contributions of the small business sector, and developing appropriate assistance programs, the SBC and Office of Small Business work to support and enhance an environment where small businesses can succeed and flourish. The SBC reviews pertinent small business legislation and policy matters and makes recommendations to the sponsor of the legislation, including the Mayor, Board of Supervisors, or other City Agencies. 

The Commission consists of seven members appointed by the Mayor (four), and the Board of Supervisors (three). Seats 1-5 must be an "owner, operator, or officer of a San Francisco small business." Seat 6 must be a "current or former owner, operator, or officer of a San Francisco small business." Seat 7 must be an "officer or representative of a neighborhood economic organization or an expert in small business finance."

The Commission, the Office of Small Business, and the Small Business Assistance Center are staffed by an Executive Director, a Commission Secretary/Senior Policy Analyst, a Project Manager/Systems Analyst/Case Manager, and a Small Business Assistance Center Supervisor/Case Manager.

Commission meetings are held the second Monday of the month in City Hall, Room 400 beginning at 5:30PM and on the fourth Monday of each month in City Hall, Room 400 beginning at 2:00pm unless otherwise noted. Commission meetings are open to the public and broadcast live on SFGTV Channel 26.
