WHO WE ARE
The Orem Business Alliance is a collaborative group of organizations including various Orem businesses and the City of Orem. The Orem Business Alliance is focused on sustaining and growing a thriving business community. By collaborating together, the Orem Business Alliance aims to support and strengthen Orem businesses by:
- Providing an opportunity for business networking
- Advocating for small businesses/city focused business needs
- Connecting Orem businesses to valuable resources
Thank You to Our OBA Sponsors!
Every month the Orem Business Alliance holds a Lunch & Learn meeting, where Orem businesses get together to network, enjoy lunch, and learn from a qualified speaker about relevant topics. At these Lunch & Learn meetings, businesses have the opportunity to advertise through sponsoring our door prize raffles. Sponsors bring in gift cards, certificates, vouchers, or products to raffle off for businesses in attendance, and in return receive valuable marketing opportunities. Sponsors are able to give a brief elevator pitch to meeting attendees, and then the City will post public thank-you’s to the sponsors on their social media, business emails, and on this website (depending on value of donation). View the flyer HERE and contact Kathi Lewis at email@example.com to set up a sponsorship.

2021 Stand-Out Orem Business Awards
The OBA’s Stand-Out Orem Business awards program recognizes, celebrates, and honors Orem businesses who have gone above-and-beyond in their business practices. We sought out exceptional businesses in three categories – community engagement, innovation, and historic significance. These businesses truly stand out among their peers – with many of them receiving multiple heartfelt nominations.
We had a packed house at the awards ceremony at the Orem Library Hall, with the Orem business community showing up in droves to support their peers. Please take some time to stop by our 2021 winners and congratulate them the next time you’re in their area.
There are many opportunities to network and get to know your peers here in Orem. One of the OBA’s goals is to build a stronger business community by providing opportunities for networking. To fulfill that goal, we hold two meetings every month with opportunities to network.
We hold the New Business Meet & Greet on the first Wednesday of every month at the Utah Valley Business Resource Center. The New Business Meet & Greet is aimed at new Orem businesses, and we introduce them to the resources available at the Business Resource Center, give them a tour of the facility, and introduce them to their fellow businesses.
We also hold the OBA Lunch & Learn on the second Tuesday of every month. At the Lunch & Learn businesses can learn from an expert presenter, enjoy lunch, and network with their peers. We have a great turnout at these events with more and more businesses joining every month. Join us at our next event and become a part of the Orem Business Alliance!
WHY DOES THE OBA EXIST?
The Orem Business Alliance exists to serve and build up the Orem business community. Orem businesses needed an avenue to solve issues facing the Orem business community, and so the Orem Business Alliance was formed. The issues we strive to address involve business mentorship and growth, access to resources, networking, and advocacy with the city and community.
