Beaverton Business Walk

September 13th, 2017

Beaverton Business Walk presented by Wells Fargo

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 from 12-4 PM

Beaverton Chamber of Commerce, 12600 SW Crescent St, Ste 160, Beaverton, 97005

We need all volunteer hands on deck to visit retailers in Beaverton. As part of our high touch approach, we are checking in with Beaverton-based businesses to ask three questions. How is business? How is doing business in Beaverton? What’s your biggest business challenge? While we can’t promise solutions, we have found that we can often connect folks to resources and often improve their situation. It’s a great experience that allows you to learn a lot about the businesses in our community we don’t even know are here. Our volunteers in the past have loved it and look forward to the next chance. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Jon-Michael at jonmichael@beaverton.org.
