Annabel Ortega de Radillo

Current Position:  Small Business Development Center

With help from the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at CCC, Annabel Ortega de Radillo and her husband Jose Radillo were able to grow a corporate and residential painting business.

Annabel, a Milwaukie-area military veteran, wanted to use her background in human resources to launch a business with her husband, Jose, who had more than a decade of experience as a painter. To learn about what they needed to do to grow a successful business, Annabel turned to CCC's Small Business Development Center, which offers affordable training for entrepreneurs, as well as business counseling and other resources that support economic growth in Clackamas County.

"What I like about the SBDC's Greenhouse Program and CCC's instructors is that they give you a checklist of exactly what you need to do," Annabel said of the intensive training program for startups she enrolled in.

A year after launching Empower Painting, the couple have become job creators, taking on two employees. Annabel continues to take classes through CCC. 

Many Clackamas County small businesses have benefited from the training and resources offered at Clackamas Community College.
