Over the past few years, the Portland Development Commission (PDC) has taken an increasingly active role in helping early stage startups through the Startup PDX Challenge. But they do more than that. They’ve helped thousands of small and medium sized business secure capital. Still, they realize that there is always room for improvement.
That’s why the PDC is currently surveying the startup community about access to capital. To hear where the needs are. Where the opportunities lay. And how they can potentially help find new and different ways to help—or to make more obvious the ways that already exist.
In order to better assist entrepreneurs and startups, PDC wants to understand the financing and support needs of these businesses in Portland.
We ask business owners and executives of small to medium sized businesses to participate in this important survey. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete, and will remain open until September 30, 2016.
The survey is also available in Spanish.
For more information or to participate, please visit the PDC Business Survey, today.
