Oregon Small Business Advocate

We Help Small Business Navigate Government

Our office helps small businesses that have a question or concern about state or local government. We are an independent voice for small business that speaks from an objective point of view.

For our purposes, small business is defined as a for-profit or nonprofit organization with zero to 100 employees. (ORS 56.200)
