Building a Better Portland
August 11 @ 9:00 am – 9:30 am
The narrative around Portland and the Pacific Northwest comes across as unfavorable to the rest of the world. Yet, despite the challenges and recent national conversation about the city, Portland continues to build, grow and evolve.
Central to the real Portland story is business—particularly local businesses that remain its vibrant lifeblood.
