Event Details

The Governor's Marketplace is taking the show on the road this summer to support Oregon small businesses!

The Roadshow is a single day event on Thursday, October 25th. We're pleased to have so many partnering organizations to share high-value information; from start-to-finish government contracting to learning about the many available resources to take your business to the next level. Thank you to the Oregon Coast Small Business Development Center for hosting our day; because lunch is included, prompt RSVPs will ensure adequate meals for the group.

  • Small Business Administration
    • "The Three C'sof Small Business" presented by the Portland District Office, US SBA. In this session, the SBA will present and facilitate a discussion revolving around Contracts, Capital, and Counseling programs and services.

  • Oregon Employment Department

    • An Economist from the Oregon Employment Department will give a quick overview of the area's economic and labor market trends, and will describe some of the products and services they can provide small and growing businesses to help you make informed business decisions.  

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy! Our goal is to provide valuable information, tools and resources, and create or strengthen relationships to assist Oregon small businesses to get back to work. We hope to see you and feel free to invite other small businesses to join us ~
