Please join us at software Industry Roundtable discussion! As a leader in the software industry, your perspective on Portland’s strengths and challenges, specifically for this industry, are of critical interest to the city of Portland and its partners as we begin the implementation of the city’s newly-adopted Economic Development Strategy.
The Strategy, which was approved by City Council in July 2009, emphasizes job creation and business competitiveness as the path to a sustainable economy, and identifies four industry clusters where the Portland Development Commission (PDC) will concentrate time, talent and resources to meet the Strategy’s goal of 10,000 net new jobs in the city of Portland in the next five years.
We are in the process of gathering intelligence on Portland’s software sector and trying to identify opportunities for growing the cluster. The PDC and the Software Association of Oregon (SAO) are collaborating on a series of software industry round tables to help guide the development of this important industry cluster. Your participation in one of these discussions would be invaluable in advancing the understanding of industry needs.
