Driving Tangible Economic Prosperity in Greater Portland

We’re building something new in Greater Portland: an economy that offers opportunity to all. Spanning seven counties, from northwest Oregon to southwest Washington, the Greater Portland Region inspires public and private sector businesses alike to achieve big things.

Here, we boast the perfect mix of legacy industries and emerging technologies. Greater Portland is a destination for small businesses and global brands seeking creative talent and room to grow. Major employers include revolutionaries such as Columbia, Intel and Thermo Fisher Scientific. This competitive business environment makes it one of the best places to relocate, expand or start a new business. 

The region's prime West Coast Location, encompassing the city of Portland, similarly enhances the ease of doing business here. With three ports, including the Port of Vancouver, and one of America's best airports, your business exports will benefit from the Portland Metro Area's national and global connectivity.

The Greater Portland Region is also home to a steady influx of young, skilled talent. With workforce development programs at local institutions and public-private partnerships at universities advancing key industries, this region's talent is the driving force behind Portland's economic development strategy.  

At Greater Portland Inc (GPI), we strive to create a more equitable economy and economic opportunity for our region. From entrepreneurs driving job creation to established corporations fueling economic growth, we recognize the value Portland businesses hold in community development. Our confidential, no-cost economic development services include private sector connectivity, real estate connectivity, data research and more.

As the most attractive business development market in the U.S., it’s time to seize the opportunity to become part of something bigger: put down roots in Greater Portland.
