About this Event

Why Oregon?

The Best of the West Coast! Sandwiched between the tech epicenters of San Francisco and Seattle, Oregon offers excellent talent at a more competitive cost than its neighbor states. In addition to the sportswear(Nike is headquartered in Portland, Oregon) and semiconductor(Intel has over 20,000 employees in the state) sectors, tech companies like Airbnb, Salesforce, and Ebay have a significant presence in the greater Portland area. The state has seen a 50% growth in IT employment in the last 10 years as companies and talent continue to flow into the state, attracted to its mountains, forests, coffee, beer, and pinot noir... need we say more?

The purpose of these ‘’office hours’’ is to set up 1-on-1 meetings between Business Oregon and UK companies to discuss

• Your expansion plans for the US, and how Business Oregon can assist with your growth on the West Coast

• What attracts companies to set up in the state of Oregon, particularly those in the athleticwear, semiconductor, and tech sectors

• Steps to setting up on the West Coast, including entity creation, recruitment, etc.

• Potential Incentives available for companies setting up in Oregon
