Our startup community keeps on growing, and that’s especially exciting when that growth translates to more resources for early stage entrepreneurs. OSU-Cascades launched its Innovation Co-Lab incubator last week. The Co-Lab will provide coworking space and coaching for startups.

It’s located in the OSU-Cascades Graduate Research Center building off of Columbia. That means you can take a quick run on the river trail when you need inspiration, walk down to the Old Mill or come say hello to StartupBend at BendTECH and have coffee at Thump.

Co-Lab is waiting for you…

The Co-Lab already has a few startups in residence including Tribe Pilot and Kidcareshare. If you’re a startup founder interested in checking out the space, the Co-Lab is offering tours and taking applications.
