Beaverton Startup Challenge 2022

Owners of the five startup companies selected for the Beaverton Startup Challenge stand with Beaverton Mayor Lacey Beaty (center) to accept a check to help fund their new businesses.

Five up and coming businesses in the Portland metro area are getting a leg up this year, thanks to the Oregon Startup Center.

At the same time, the business incubator is moving to the executive suites within the Beaverton Round building at 12725 S.W. Millikan Way.

"Local journalism is the heart of a community: How the City Council tackles issues, how the school board votes on new policies, what impacts nonprofits are making across Beaverton. I enjoy being able to amplify the good and uncover the bad, an essential function in any democracy. Local journalism means that I get to attend the hourslong meetings — so you don't have to — and add valuable context to what those in power say."
