When you have a rolling schedule, you get to make startup cohort announcements twice as often. And such is the case with Portland’s Jaguar Land Rover Tech Incubator, who just announced the 7th cohort of companies going through the incubator.
There once was a time when Portland was home to a bevy of incubators and accelerators. And during those times, it seemed that there was always some deadline or another looming. Now that there are fewer organizations looking for startup applications, however, it can be easy to forget those deadlines. It’s okay. I’ll remind you.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: Portland is, by its very nature, a collaborative and collegial community. But even so, it’s rare for us to do a good job of getting a bunch of groups together on a regular basis. That’s why I was happy to see the WITCH Summer Soiree. Read More
While Portland has a bunch of awesome organizations designed to incubate and accelerate startup activity, we haven’t seen a consumer brand backed accelerator on the scene for nearly three years, since the Nike+ Accelerator powered by TechStars.
