Built Oregon has developed an ‘Etsy-like’ open multi-vendor Marketplace that will celebrate Oregon’s entrepreneur culture, amplify founder stories, and connect consumers to products to create equitable opportunities for founders and communities to support them. The Built Oregon Marketplace will leverage Oregon’s profound legacy of product craftsmanship and innovation to create broad-based and equitable opportunities for consumer product entrepreneurs, companies, communities, and customers.
The Built Oregon Marketplace will feature premium made products from across the state’s seven regions with focused and ongoing support for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), Women, LGBTQIA+, and Rural Founders. In addition, the site will feature Built Oregon branded gear for purchase, with a percentage of the profits from every sale going to the Built Together fund and organizational support. The Marketplace is an extension of Built Oregon, a network of consumer product industry experts and mentors dedicated to helping company founders create more equitable, innovative, supportive, and sustainable businesses across Oregon.
