Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber

The largest regional chamber in the state of New Jersey

The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber is the largest regional chamber in the state of New Jersey. By connecting businesses throughout Central New Jersey, Mercer County, and the Princeton Region for more than 50 years, the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce (PMRC) has proven itself to be Central New Jersey’s “Champions for Business.”

A thriving economy, commercial activity, rich cultural scene, ideal geographic location between Philadelphia and New York City, and long-standing partnership with the prestigious Princeton University make the Princeton Mercer Region an ideal place to live, work, and do business. At its center is the Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber.

The largest regional chamber in the state with over 8,000 contacts and over 1,400 members, PMRC engages individuals, businesses, and communities in a five-county footprint—Mercer, Somerset, Middlesex, Hunterdon, and Monmouth, though membership extends beyond these borders. The Chamber’s Board of Directors represents the top business leaders—from Fortune 100 companies to regional and local businesses—and provides strategic direction. The Chamber partners with businesses, employees, government entities, elected officials, educational institutions and others to promote growth opportunities.

Industry-Leading Programs
Members benefit from engaging and informative programs, featuring annual conferences such as the state’s largest conference for women—NJ Conference for Women or the Young Professionals Summit. The Chamber offers over 100 events each year designed to help businesses grow and provide networking opportunities for members. The PMRC has 10 business programs within, allowing members to engage with different industries most pertinent to their companies, such as the Women in Business Alliance, Real Estate Business Alliance, Princeton-Mercer Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau, Independent Business Alliance, Central Jersey Nonprofit Council, the Diversity & Inclusion Forum to name a few. The PRMC also hosts the nation’s only Albert Einstein Memorial Lecture series, where attendees can meet Nobel Laureates.

Another of the Chamber’s programs is the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program (IEP), which focuses on the creation, development, and expansion of innovative companies and assists entrepreneurs with programs regarding capital formation, business development, expansion, and strategic planning.

Recognizing the immense importance of innovation and entrepreneurship in our region, the IEP introduced the “PitchStop” event in 2019, bringing together startup companies and small-business entrepreneurs to pitch their business proposals to a panel of equity funders. In partnership with Princeton University, Princeton BioLabs, and associated law firms, accounting firms, marketing firms, and consultants, the PMRC provides an award of support services totaling over $20,000 to the winning company.

Promoting Tourism for Economic Growth
The Chamber’s Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is the region’s official, state-designated destination marketing organization serving more than 2 million visitors annually. As a member of the Chamber, an organization is also a member of the CVB. To learn more about the CVB or regional tourism efforts, visit VisitPrinceton.org.
