The Economic Impact of the Athletic, Outdoor,
Team, and Recreation Industries.
Welcome to Oregon, the State of Sport.
As you’ll read in “Oregon: The State of Sport,” we are a global epicenter for the Athletic, Outdoor, Team, and Recreation ecosystem.
What we design, the world wears. That epic adventure? Those kicks? Those yoga pants? Wearable tech? Rugged backpacking gear? Those come from here.
But this economy is much more than business as usual; here, you can live your work and work your lifestyle. No place offers a greater opportunity to build your dream than our vibrant urban centers, paired with every possible natural pursuit across our staggeringly beautiful and diverse landscapes.
If you want to build a business, compete on a global stage, or handcraft a career in a place that embraces the competitiveness at the heart of human performance, you need to look no further than Oregon.
