Thank you to Inc.com for mentioning Factory Portland in the recent article “How This Tiny East Coast City of 70,000 People Is Churning Out Fast-Growing Startups.“ And we agree – Portland’s a great place for artists, musicians, and startups.
While we no longer offer “business and marketing support for local bands and musicians,” we’re still here! Factory Portland’s current focus is to profile local musicians in our 10Qs series, interview artists “from away,” and highlight other aspects of the local music scene. We’re fully volunteer run and have recently added several contributors to review shows and add more to the site. We’ll have some announcements about new features in the coming months, as well as the return of our local musician database.
Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a longtime reader, we hope you’ll stick around and see what we have to offer!
