About BESThq

An Oregon Benefit Company committed to social and environmental responsibility, BESThq purposefully leads our community in change for a better future.

Ron and Jill White founded BESThq in 2011 after years of coaching and consulting small businesses. Realizing one of the greatest challenges for small business owners is that of feeling alone on their journey, Ron and Jill created a space where entrepreneurs cross paths, collaborate, learn and grow through community.  Built on principles of relationship, empowerment, and inclusion, and guided by Jesuit tradition and Ignatian Spirituality, Beaverton’s Business Executive Sustainable Training Headquarters, BESThq, exists to support the sustainable growth of the businesses that make up our community and to empower individuals to realize their business goals, all this while mindfully considering the quadruple bottom line of People, Profit, Planet and Purpose.
