The more, the merrier: Gorge Bootcamp and Roseburg's RAIN look to help Oregon startups

While I spend a great deal of my time focused on the Portland startup scene. I’m always happy to see other resources helping entrepreneurs around Oregon. Especially when those resources crop up in areas that are currently underserved but ripe with potential.

So if you’re living in the Gorge or a little further south, get ready to be happy.

Gorge Bootcamp

BootCamp2 is an eight-week program that meets weekly at the Gorge Innoventure office space in Hood River, OR. We match early stage companies with mentoring and business training to get them moving faster and with greater support. We also provide training and support for pitching each company, along with a spot to pitch at the Gorge Angel Conference in November.

Deadline for applications is August 9. So if you’re interested, apply for Gorge Bootcamp. Or get some more information on the program.

RAIN (Roseburg Area Investment Network)

RAIN is an effort to foster a better environment for entrepreneurship in Douglas County. The primary vehicle is a private company (an LLC), through which local investors are coming together to invest in one early stage company. The larger effort, being organized by The Partnership for Economic Development in Douglas County and the Umpqua Business Center, includes a business plan competition, a series of training events, and a conference in November (November 13 at the Danny Lang Center at Umpqua Community College).

The deadline for applications is September 9. An application fee of $99 is required. For more information, visit RAIN.
