The Commerce Bank of Oregon was established in 2005 to cater to the Oregon and SW Washington business community by providing a highly customized approach to lending and banking. We are fortunate to have steadily grown our client base over the last 12 years. Many of our larger relationships started as smaller companies fueled with desire for growth and success. We recognize that growing companies, whether they are smaller expanding companies or established middle-market companies, are critical to the growth of our own business and our local economy. Our goal is to provide an alternative to the status quo of banking. We enjoy the lending capacity and sophistication of a large regional bank through our ownership by Zion’s Bancorp while maintaining a community bank model and culture. Our relationship managers are credit underwriters and portfolio managers; we do not ship the decision making out of state. In addition, our clients have direct access to our senior management team, which we believe is critical to building strong relationships. It is an honor to be associated with EO’s Portland Chapter to help foster the long term sustainable growth of local businesses. We look forward to opportunities to be an engaged resource.

EOS®, the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, is a complete set of simple concepts and practical tools that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses. By mastering this simple way of operating, leadership teams of growth-oriented companies systematically and permanently improve.
Entrepreneurship is in Matt Curry’s DNA. Having taken over an earlier business with people issues, profit issues, lack of control issues, and overall underperformance, Matt discovered EOS and became an early client. In 5 years, that company grew from a regional brand to a multi-national operating company that grew from $34M to $70M while earning industry recognition with Matt being recognized with the 40 Under 40 Award and the company winning an award for product innovation. While building his business with EOS and being a member of the EO Portland chapter, Matt realized that his passion is coaching entrepreneurial freedom from what he’d learned in what works and what doesn’t work in getting what you want from your business. In 2016, he sold the company to become an EOS Implementer.
Matt is obsessed with unique ways to help people maximize their results.

Social Venture Partners practices venture philanthropy, a model that mimics venture capital investing to make social impact. Rather than investing in start-up businesses, venture philanthropists invest in nonprofit organizations and community causes.
We partner engaged citizens who invest their money, skills, and connections to make positive change with community leaders who have the solutions but require resources to increase their community impact.
SVP can help EO members and forums by:
- Aligning their business strategies with their giving and volunteering instincts
- Giving with greater impact, especially for the success of kids in metro Portland
- Improving their effectiveness on nonprofit Boards
- Building valuable skills and strategies to advance social justice and racial equity
- Increasing the satisfaction and effectiveness of company volunteerism
