Governor John Kitzhaber says a Bend company is a success story. Yesterday, the Governor came to Central Oregon to speak at the annual Economic Development for Central Oregon (EDCO) luncheon and stop by Kialoa Canoe Paddles. The company makes a full line of carbon fiber and handcrafted wood paddles for outrigger and dragon boat racing. He says it's a good example of a business working with a State agency to grow its business. “The State assists small and medium sized businesses in many ways, first by connecting them to export markets; second by connecting them to supply chains to larger companies and providing innovation research to our States’ universities and helping them access the capital that's necessary to help them grow and build their businesses.” Kialoa Paddles is one of hundreds of small businesses that have received help from the State's Economic Development Agency: Business Oregon.
