      Governor's Marketplace Roadshow 2012 - Washington County Latino Outreach

      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 Wednesday, December 12th. 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.

      The Washington County Roadshow will be a English-Spanish bilingual event focusing on reaching out to Latino Business owners, however all small business owners are welcome to attend.

                   And many others......

                  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.
