Economic Development in Hillsboro
Hillsboro, Oregon is a business-friendly and business-focused community. Top-level staff from a range of industries regularly tell us how different–and how much easier–it is to do business in Hillsboro.
Their experience is not by chance.
As far back as the 1970s, Hillsboro has cultivated a clear vision through deliberate planning and investment strategies. Intel’s arrival was a harbinger of things to come, as more and more high tech companies started here, expanded here, or moved their operations to Hillsboro. Along with that, the City developed a deep knowledge and understanding of exactly what it takes to support and sustain a high-tech cluster. That knowledge has proven invaluable, providing a solid foundation for supporting the increasingly diverse industries that have taken root here.
While there are plenty of strategic advantages to operating a business in Hillsboro, there’s an intangible human factor that is uniquely ours. We’re proud of our community–especially our business community–and we will do everything we can to help make you successful. You’ll discover that mindset not only in the Economic Development Department, but inside all City departments. We work together to solve problems, remove barriers, and create opportunities. It’s part of our culture, and it truly sets us apart.
