Greater Portland offers a welcoming home for emerging industries, entrepreneurs and anyone who thinks… differently. Never one to embrace the status quo or standard ideas for how things should be done, our region is home to companies who aren't afraid to try something new. After all, Nike was born here before sneakers were a thing. Tektronix started investing in technology here in 1946, way before most people had televisions let alone computers. And the craft brewing industry - that was definitely started here. That’s the point - Greater Portland is where people and companies come to be free from the ordinary so they can create something extraordinary.

If you are looking for a home for a new company, a cutting edge industry, or something outside of the box, you’ll be welcome in Greater Portland.
