To better understand the factors influencing entrepreneurship in Portland, through this RFP, PDC is commissioning a study to detail the state of entrepreneurship in the region (the “project”). The project is intended to inform and energize the conversation about entrepreneurship in Portland and detail how the City, through its economic development efforts, can better support entrepreneurial development and activity. The project should include appropriate data to demonstrate the impact of entrepreneurship on the Portland economy, and serves as the inaugural annual report and “scorecard” for tracking and measuring local entrepreneurial activity.

This project, “The State of Entrepreneurship in Portland, Oregon” will document the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Portland. The project must detail the strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats to being an entrepreneur in Portland. The Study will have baseline information (quantitative and qualitative) to assess the current state of the entrepreneurial climate in Portland, policy prescriptions for improving the environment for entrepreneurs and recommendations on how Portland can assist in growing small firms.
