The Oregon Entrepreneurs Network and Software Association of Oregon have partnered to offer small businesses the opportunity to purchase the Entrepreneurs’ Passport membership that provides companies and their employees with access to both SAO and OEN educational and networking events.
“Working together with SAO, OEN is pleased to be able to extend this new membership offer to entrepreneurs and small businesses throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington,” said Linda Weston, president and executive director of OEN. “The new membership package will allow businesses to participate in more events, provide them more opportunities to network, and create opportunities that will help businesses to grow.
“It’s a great value, and a great way for us to celebrate the contributions small businesses make to our communities on the eve of National Small Business Week,” said Weston. (National Small Business Week, May 20-26, http://www.nationalsmallbusinessweek.com/)
The Entrepreneurs’ Passport membership will cost $350 for qualified small businesses. The Entrepreneurs’ Passport is a great investment, the combined membership fees to both organizations is normally valued at $600.
