Portland: Driving creativity, independence and innovation in a land of lush beauty
Eclectic, experimental and creative, Portland is a tapestry of technology, trees and tastes. From hilly terrain, skyscrapers shoot above the city, with stunning Mt. Hood featured prominently in the background. The natural ruggedness of the Pacific Northwest city, combined with a fiercely independent spirit and boundary-advancing attitudes, attract revolutionary companies, seeking to make a name for themselves—including Nike in nearby Beaverton and Intel. Dubbed the “Silicon Forest,” the area is rich with tech startups and innovation. Dynamic art, food, coffee, and music scenes round out the Portland experience.
