Free office space near Bunk – who's in?


Pr Sc

The Portland Development Commission (PDC) and Produce Row business association are sponsoring a new coworking space for startups of all types. The two organizations are going to stock this space with up to six winners of the Startup PDX Challenge – a competition for all early-stage startups with up to eight employees. The prize package includes:

  • A $10,000 working capital grant from PDC (grant! not equity!)
  • Free rent for a year alongside other winners in a new space in Produce Row
  • Free legal, accounting and HR services
  • Membership and access to several Portland-based organizations supporting entrepreneurs

The organizers are specifically looking for startups that are "pre-incubator" – that is, still working on a concept or prototype offering that will later be used to apply to one of Portland's incubators or accelerators. Applicants from out of state, and out of the country, are encouraged.
