Vancouver Business Journal – About Us

The Key to Southwest Washington Business

The Vancouver Business Journal has been chronicling Southwest Washington’s business community for more than two decades.

Locally owned and operated by Brown Warrior Publishing since 2004, our mission is clear: to provide readers with high-quality, comprehensive coverage of local and regional business – with a commitment to integrity.

We aim to inspire readers by profiling innovative, growing businesses; to be an informative, essential resource for companies large and small; and to provide a unique platform for advertisers looking to reach a valuable demographic.

The Vancouver Business Journal delivers quality content on a variety of channels including our weekly print edition (published every Friday), website, electronic newsletter (Just Business) and through social media. Our diverse content is comprised of exclusive interviews, industry lists, business spotlights, opinion columns, video features, podcasts, a calendar of business events, hiring announcements and more.

In addition to the weekly journal, we publish a number of other business-focused products throughout the year. These include the Book of Lists, Health Resource Guide, Women in Business Directory and Top Projects Magazine. Brown Warrior Publishing is also the publisher of North Bank Magazine.

Along with our various publications, The Vancouver Business Journal organizes a number of events throughout the year. For more information on those, visit the Events section of our website.
