  • About Business Outreach and Support

    Maintaining a healthy business environment is a high priority for the City of Pasadena. We recognize that a healthy business sector provides the resources necessary to sustain jobs and services for our citizens.  Business retention and expansion programs are successfully being used to improve the City's revenue base, create jobs for residents, and provide for the overall well being of business communities.
    Encouraging an ongoing dialogue with businesses and building relationships with business leaders are critical factors for business retention. To that end, the City's Economic Development Division offers a number of business outreach programs to offer new and established businesses alike education about emerging business trends, information on relevant City programs and activities, and opportunities to communicate with City staff and fellow area businesses.

    Our programs include:

    Valued Pasadena Partners (VPP) Breakfasts
    Business Seminar Series (Art of Small Business Survival)
    Office Lobby Visits
    Street Visitation Program
