Home to more than 30 promising technology and science startups, including spinouts from all major Oregon research universities, the Accelerator provides office and lab space plus a menu of services designed with the fast-growing startup's needs in mind.
The 200+ people who work for Accelerator companies are on a mission. Located at the south end of Portland's central business district, the Accelerator draws the region's top science and technology startups with turn-key affordable work space; conference room access; monthly CEO meetings and topic-related brown bags, plus ready information on business basics, raising funds and managing people. The Accelerator is also a connection point to PSU resources, linking companies to research and development capabilities of university faculty and the talent and energy of student project teams. Informal socials, pitch practice and office hours by skilled mentors and investors round out the exceptional offerings at PSU Business Accelerator.
