Small Business Week: May 2- May 7

It's Small Business Week! Let's make a plan to support our small businesses in Downtown Portland.

For the past few seasons, The Portland Business Alliance’s Downtown Marketing Initiative set aside funds to contract a local videographer to interview and develop free: 60-second videos of Downtown business owners, businesses, and their products and services.

We want to give everyone a chance to see what we’ve created with the hope of revisiting these businesses during the week and beyond. The next round of videos will drop weekly or bi-weekly over the next few weeks of a brand new crop of businesses on our social media platforms and newsletters.
