Time to accelerate that accelerator application: Beaverton Startup Challenge applications due Friday

Sure, sure. You’ve been busy. Don’t worry. I get it. But I thought it would be wise to give you a heads up that there’s a looming opportunity for you and your startup. Mentorship, services, and a little capital could be one simple application away. Thanks to the Beaverton Startup Challenge.

The catch? Well, if this is the first you’re hearing of it, you’re going to have to get your butt in gear. Because applications are due Friday.

The City of Beaverton, the West Side Startup Fund and OTBC worked together to create the Beaverton $100K Startup Challenge. The Challenge is sponsored by the city and Westside Startup Fund 2, LLC, and each contributes $50,000 to help five startups kick-start their business with coaching and mentoring support from the OTBC.

In addition to mentorship, selected companies receive at least $20,000 in cash, discounted legal and accounting services, and HR and marketing assistance.

There is an application fee of $20 to apply.
