Join Built Oregon on 10/21 for their annual Built Festival Main Event! With the ongoing support of Travel Oregon, this year’s Built Festival presents an amazing lineup of fireside chats between industry founders and leaders (with more still to be announced).
The event will take place throughout the afternoon with ample time for networking and community building, including a happy hour reception sponsored by Bridgewell Agribusiness. In addition, there will be a marketplace featuring someAccelerator and Bridges companies (get an early jump on holiday shopping!).
As a nonprofit, Built Oregon relies on the Built Festival as one of the primary means of generating operating capital for their organization. Your patronage makes this event and future events like it possible. In addition, they’d like to thank our additional sponsors – Village Family Capital, Prosper Portland, & OnPoint Community Credit Union.
