Let’s Get Down to Business-Small Business Open House Metro & Multnomah County

February 23, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm PST



Want to talk about your business? Show us what you’ve got?

Come mingle with Metro and Multnomah County staff at an early evening Open House. A great chance for small businesses in the Metro Region to introduce themselves to project managers from both agencies, learn about opportunities, and how to do business with government.

Learn about certification as a minority, woman or service disabled veteran-owned business, or emerging small business.

Doing business with government might sound like a mysterious or daunting process, especially for small and emerging business owners who have had to struggle to be heard and seen. That’s why Metro and Multnomah County are teaming up to throw the third annual Small Business Open House in February, giving small business owners in the region a chance to meet with and learn from project and procurement managers, adding a personal touch to public work.
