Call it an incubator. Call it an accelerator. Call it whatever you want. But you might be calling it your new job.

While it’s always nice to see the significant and measurable economic impact accelerators have for the startups they support, I’m equally pleased to see these startup resources growing, themselves. So when they’re hiring, that’s a really good thing. And these days, if you’re in Portland and interested in learning the ropes, you’ve got a few different incubator and accelerator gigs from which to choose.

Want to learn more about how accelerators and incubators help founders and startups? The following accelerators/incubators in Portland are currently hiring.
