We started Built Oregon with the simple vision – to make Oregon the leader in consumer product innovation and development. But becoming a leader requires laying the foundations of support, knowledge and resources upon which companies can engage.
Built Oregon launched the country’s first not for profit (no cost + no equity taken) consumer product accelerator in June of 2019. The goal is to engage emerging brands through peer to peer engagement, mentor connections, and focused support.
We are currently accepting applications for a cohort beginning in the first half of 2020 and like the first one we will engage companies around a structured approach that focuses on finances, sales channels, and brand perception/positioning.

Over the past year, over 150 mentors have signed up to be part of the Built Oregon network. Not only has this been an invaluable resource to connect the accelerator and community to, but it’s also a great peer to peer group. If you are interested in tapping into your knowledge to support the next generation of consumer products companies in Oregon, then we’d love to get you plugged into the mentor community Mentor form here.
