SCHB supports its members by assisting in the formation, development and growth of start-ups and small chemical businesses. We provide content through collaborations at ACS local, regional, and national meetings, as well as weekly online “discuss business” sessions that marry technical content with an informal social setting. Our sessions feature the real stories of chemical entrepreneurs, as well as guidance on the best practices in growing and developing your business. Our partnerships with other ACS units on contemporary topics of interest to chemical enterprises facilitate dialog and synergy amongst business-minded chemists. Our strong network of individuals to draw inspiration from and to conduct business with is one asset that we support our members with.
