NE Broadway Celebrates SMALL!

Join the NE Broadway Business District and the city’s other 50 neighborhood business districts as we celebrate the small businesses that make Portland Portland during National Small Business Week, April 30-May 6 - and throughout all of May.  Look for the ‘Portland Celebrates Small’ signs popping up in business windows across the city and stop in to show your local businesses some love. Portlanders are encouraged to spend the month of May honoring the small businesses that contribute to the livability of our city and power Portland’s economy on a daily basis.

Portland is truly a small business city.  Neighborhood business districts contain 19,200 businesses that provide 267,000 local jobs.  Of those businesses, 98% have five or fewer employees.  Nationally, small businesses create about 2 out of every 3 new U.S. jobs.  Together, Portland’s small businesses are really BIG!
