September Biz Registrations up Compared to September; Down Compared to October 2017
Bend, OR – Entrepreneurs registered 294 new businesses in Bend, Oregon, in October, compared with 256 in September and 321 in October 2017.
So far in 2018, Bend entrepreneurs have registered 2,998 businesses, versus 2,840 through October in 2017.
“We continue to see strong business registration numbers in Bend,” Bend business attorney Jeff Eager of EagerLaw PC said. “While October numbers were down a bit from October 2017, I suspect that has more to do with the spike we saw in October 2017, following a slow summer due to smoke and the eclipse. Bend entrepreneurs registered one new business in October 2018 for every 310 residents, once again leading large cities in Oregon.”
Each month, EagerLaw carefully analyzes Oregon Secretary of State’s business registration data to prepare the Bend Entrepreneur Report. The Report is released monthly to local media and on the EagerLaw PC Facebook page, where the firm also spotlights local business achievements and provides information of use to Bend businesses.
