Opportunity Knocks

A peer advisory program for business owners supported by trained facilitators.

Chemeketa's Opportunity Knocks for Business Owners

Every business owner feels isolated sometimes.

Running a business without feedback or input can feel frustrating. When you’re facing critical issues and challenging times, having access to people with experience and insight can help.

Tired of Going at it Alone?

You can share your business concerns and lessons in a confidential and supportive setting.

“It’s a relief to know you’re not in this all by yourself.”
                                                   Rachel Greco, Grandma’s Attic

“I can benefit from someone else’s experiences”. 
                                                   Dan Noble, Premium Property Management
