The Pacific Northwest Region is the Epicenter of the Outdoor Gear & Activewear Industry - Let's Map It!

Why is your company located in Oregon and Washington?
By sharing why your company is located here, and your company's relationship to other firms, you're helping to identify connections that will make it easier for start-up companies to access resources.

Who should respond?
We ask that the the company founder or CEO/president respond to this questionnaire. Please respond to all questions. The survey will take at most 10 to 15 minutes. In return for your time, we will send you a complementary copy of the poster.

How will we use the information?
The information will be used to create a map of relationships (i.e. genealogy) among Activewear firms. The genealogy data will be visualized on a poster similar to the one created for Portland's Silicon Forest (click here to see the poster).

Your privacy is important to us. We will publish company names and organization relationships (e.g. genealogy) similar to the image above. All other information will be kept strictly confidential and will not be reported, released or disclosed in any way that could connect your specific responses to your name or company.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Heike Mayer, Professor of Economic Geography at the University of Bern, Switzerland (mayer@giub.unibe.ch). For project questions, contact Jennifer Nolfi at the Portland Development Commission (nolfij@pdc.us)
