Do you have the courage, heart, and brains to prove there’s no place like Cheyenne? Members of your business community will gather on June 23 to celebrate our servant leaders that make the region a great place to live, work, and do business.
WY We Care
Your Cheyenne Chamber firmly believes that we must commit ourselves to economic development centered around the desire to help every business achieve their dreams and aspirations. That means we’re fighting for the reform of regulatory hurdles that increase the cost of both housing and commercial developments, we’re facilitating the development of keystone projects that enhance our economic development, we are obtaining data to drive decisions for economic growth, and we are aiding business start-ups and expansions of local companies. Our economic development strategy covers everything from the Sentinel Missile Program to Housing to Healthcare to Childcare to Transportation to Infrastructure.
Our business community exemplifies the courage, heart, and brains required to set Cheyenne apart. Together with your Cheyenne Chamber, we work everyday to prove there’s no place like Cheyenne.
Doing the Big Work
Building Wyoming’s Future takes the right people willing to put in the work on behalf of Cheyenne. The Cheyenne business community strives to build a great future for our community and our region. Join us as we celebrate these organizations that embrace a servant leadership approach to their work, and better our entire community because of their efforts.

Alexis Drake: Lexie Garret and her company are involved in quality manufacturing of handbags. They have invested time and energy in downtown Cheyenne through building their business, the time invested in Chamber activities, and the newly formed downtown merchants association.
“This nomination makes me feel that we as a company are still giving new and current customers a great customer experience,” said Lexie Garrett, Founder and CEO of Alexis Drake. “As we continue to share our brand process and story, we are always striving for perfection---we know that perfection isn't possible, but the idea that we move closer to that each and every time we make our product better, is pretty cool. We are unique as a company because we manufacture all that we sell, so our conversations around style, efficiencies and materials may look a little different than other retailers or manufacturers. What we love is that our customers still love the process and being part of it----that is what makes our unique vision special.”
