The City of Monroe is excited to announce it has partnered with the Oregon Regional Accelerator & Innovation Network, or RAIN, to offer free education, networking, and mentorship to established and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Oregon RAIN has successfully launched rural entrepreneurship programs in Albany, Florence, Lincoln County, Lowell and Oakridge. It also supports two business accelerators in Eugene and Corvallis, and pre-accelerators in Florence and Newport. Oregon RAIN believes good ideas can come from anywhere, and it’s their job to connect those entrepreneurs to the people, programs, and capital they need to launch and grow businesses in their communities.
“We’re excited to meet Monroe innovators and learn about what they need to succeed.” – Caroline Cummings, Oregon RAIN’s Interim Executive Director.
