The Cornell West business center occupies a class-A three-story office building in landscaped grounds in Beaverton OR. The white and grey external aspect projects a professional look and feel, which extends inside to the wood accented lobby. Beaverton in Oregon is home to many leading technology corporations in microcomputer components, circuit manufacturing and software, earning it the nickname The Silicon Forest but there’s much more to the area than hi-tech. The local economy is strengthened by sectors including the export of wood products and sports and other apparel. A robust infrastructure and skilled workforce make international trade, particularly exporting to Asia, a valuable part of the economy. Oregon also ranks fourth in the US for wine production. The city is keen on promoting entrepreneurial business opportunities and offers various development and business accelerator programs, as well as training and other business assistance.
