AAPI Chamber Foundation is a nonpartisan, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

In the innovation economy, knowledge,  entrepreneurship, innovation, technology, and collaboration are the key drivers of economic growth.

Cities around the world are seeking to accommodate the needs of a new era of technology-empowered industries and firms whose innovation model depends on proximity and whose talent pool explicitly prefers urban living and lifestyles. 

We are dedicated to position Southern Nevada as a leader in the innovation economy by growing emerging sectors, focusing on equity; creating talent for tomorrow; and building neighborhoods as vibrant places to work, live, and play.

Our Pillars


Create an education-workforce system that supplies the workforce needs of the future and establishes Southern Nevada as a region for top talent.


Leverage Las Vegas' competitive advantage and identify emerging innovative sectors to diversify Southern Nevada's economy, and to ensure that diverse entrepreneurs and minority-owned small businesses are thriving.


Engage with the real estate development industry to build Southern Nevada as an attractive place to work, live, and play, with a high quality of life, affordable housing, innovation districts, and a diverse cultural scene.
