Small Business

APANO’s Small Business Support and Advising Program offers guidance and access to resources for local businesses.

Business Support

APANO supports our local small businesses

To see our vision come to fruition, we believe investing in our communities is the best path forward. And we see small businesses as a crucial component of community wealth building.

Through our Small Business Support and Advising Program, we are honored to offer support and access to resources for API businesses in Multnomah and Washington County and all businesses in Jade District and Old Town.

If you have an idea for a new business and need some guidance, or if you are an established business in need of assistance, referrals to resources, or general assistance, please schedule a 1-on-1 consultation! For Portland-area businesses, please reach out to Grace, our Small Business Advisor Manager. For businesses located in Washington County, please reach out to Peyton, our Small Business Advisor.

Cultural competency in advising is rare and essential as we help API and BIPOC owned businesses recover from the pandemic. You can donate directly to our small business program!
