Small Business in PDX
Since weve started the shop here downtown, Ive had a lot of people (mostly recent transplants) ask me about the small business environment. Many are concerned that neither the state or the business community has a vested interest in the small business environment in Oregon. Luckily this has not been my experience. Since we opened, weve encountered overwhelming support, both from other businesses (like our favorite coffee spot Spella) and from state agencies like the PDC. There are a lot of small business resources here in the northwest, geared toward making your startup successful, and hopefully as we grow we will be able to become part of the community that has helped us take our first steps.
