Founders’ Keepers: EO Portland and Pacific West Bank Multiply Opportunities for Entrepreneurs

Showing up in our community means nurturing partnerships — like our relationship with local nonprofit EO Portland.

“Pacific West Bank and EO Portland really believe in entrepreneurship in the Portland metro area — and are working hand-in-hand to make it more accessible for more people.”

Tyler McCabe, EO Portland Chapter Manager

Accelerating Growth in the Portland Metro Area

Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) is a global business accelerator that supports owner-founders of companies looking to grow. With over 18,000 members in more than 220 countries, EO has extensive reach through its numerous chapters, including the Portland chapter. This local chapter consists of around 160 entrepreneurs from a variety of sectors including B2B, B2C, online, and retail.

EO supports the business and personal growth of entrepreneurs, helping them navigate the many challenges of business ownership from startup to scaling and beyond.

As a local relationship bank, it’s part of PWB’s mission to enable business owners to excel at what they do best: enriching Portland's community by making it a more vibrant, exciting, and enjoyable place to live.


One Partnership, Wide Impact

Pacific West Bank agrees with the principle that a rising tide lifts all boats.

As a strategic partner of EO Portland, local commercial bank Pacific West Bank goes beyond EO’s banking needs. We provide meeting space, which helps the EO Portland chapter stay lean in its operating costs. We advise businesses as they grow, whether or not they’re ready for enterprise-level banking. We show up to events and create connections for these local businesses.

“For us as a bank, supporting local businesses and local business owners from the ground up is fundamental.”

- Chief Banking Officer Lisa Fajardo Faust
