Do you love small business?
Then we need your help! Here in Beaverton, we value our business community. We are looking for volunteers to help us for our 4th annual Beaverton Business Walk. We are partnering with Wells Fargo and the Beaverton Downtown Association to check on our beloved businesses around town. Join us on Wednesday October 17th, 2018 as we visit local food and retailers around the Beaverton area. It’s a wonderful chance to get involved with your local community and get a read on how our business owners are feeling by connecting neighbor to neighbor.
After we provide lunch, Volunteers will head out at 1pm from the Beaverton area Chamber of Commerce in pairs to ask business owners 3 simple questions; How is business? How is business in Beaverton? And what is your biggest business challenge?
After the event we are able to identify and respond to business challenges faced by our residents. We will use all data gathered to create our semi-annual business walk report that we share with the city, and the chamber. By volunteering with us you will help Beaverton businesses succeed and thrive. If you are interested please….
