Industrial Districts

Industry: Economic activity concerned with manufacture, extraction and processing of raw materials, or construction. See also: Makers, Advanced Manufacturers, Heavy Lifters, Builders, Fixers, Innovators, High Tech, Hands On, Get-It-Done Folks

Industrial Districts face a unique set of issues among Portland’s business districts. Protecting industrial sanctuaries while accommodating population growth and shifting City policies requires coordinated action.


That’s why Venture Portland facilitates the Industrial Districts Interest Group. We bring together industrial district leaders: Presidents, Vice Presidents, Staffers and Venture Portland Delegates to keep abreast of emerging issues and advocate for the needs of the City’s industrial districts.

The Industrial Districts Interest Group meets three times per year at Venture Portland (1125 SE Madison, Suite 112) from 8-9:30am. Attendance is free and breakfast is provided.
