Mid Valley Partners set to reveal new name, brand and website on September 28.

LEBANON, OR ­– To better support current and prospective businesses, Mid Valley Partners (MVP) recently completed renaming and rebranding efforts. The group is set to launch its new name, brand and website September 28. 

“We can’t wait to share our new brand with the communities we serve,” said Kelly Hart, community development director Lebanon, OR. “This new website will be an incredible resource for business owners and entrepreneurs in our area. We look forward to getting to the work we’re most passionate about: helping our business community.” 

MVP was formed in 2015 by leaders from rural cities in Linn County to create a competitive advantage in attracting, growing and retaining business and investment in the region. 

In 2017 the effort expanded into Benton County, for a total of eight cities. MVP was awarded a Rural Opportunities Initiative grant from Business Oregon and contracted Oregon RAIN to help attract new businesses and investors to the region.  

Coming out of the pandemic in 2022, MVP focused on rebranding and building a website to make existing resources more easily accessible to current and prospective business owners and investors. 

The new brand and website launch September 28, stay tuned for more information.
