(Excerpt from 4/4 article from The Bend Bulletin) ~ Steve Ramsey believes that keeping money local will save the economy. Not just in his native Bend, but in communities all across the country.
Keeping money local is more than just a philosophy for Ramsey — it’s the foundation for his rapidly growing business, Bend-based RelyLocal.
RelyLocal — which Ramsey co-founded in 2009 with his wife, Megan — is really a local campaign and a conduit between local small businesses and the community through the website relylocal.com, Ramsey says.
And from the Ramseys’ home office in east Bend, the company has grown quickly from a Bend startup into 132 individual regional organizations that cover more than 550 cities across the country.
