The Oregon Regional Accelerator & Innovation Network (Oregon RAIN) is 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded to advance the formation of local-impact innovative startup companies that generate jobs, wealth, and opportunities for the state.
Oregon RAIN, which is run by experienced entrepreneurs and angel investors, connects entrepreneurs with strategic resources for launching and scaling business ventures, including mentor connections, educational and training programs, and access to capital.
Oregon RAIN also builds entrepreneurial ecosystems in partnership with cities, counties, the State, foundations, and private funders.
Oregon RAIN focuses on reaching and serving overlooked and underserved entrepreneurs in small and rural communities in Oregon. We help traditionally resource-based economies create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive ecosystem that encourages local-impact, traded-sector companies to start, grow, and stay in rural Oregon.
