Business Support - Business Retention and Expansion
The Eugene Chamber’s Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) Program focuses on businesses that are already here employing community members and contributing to the region’s economic health. Our BRE Program uses a customer oriented approach to provide companies with a single point of contact for business needs. Program staff serve as an entry point to a variety of business assistance resources locally and throughout the state, including local networking, benchmarking tours, and trainings.
How the Program Works
A BRE staff visits your facility to learn more about your business, any challenges the business faces, and opportunities for growth. During this confidential meeting we will ask questions about your products and services, operations, sales and market, facilities and equipment, workforce, future planning, and industry trends to better understand your needs.
