The challenge is on for Beaverton startup companies


Computer   The City of Beaverton, the West Side Startup Fund, and the Oregon Technology Business Center (OTBC) are hosting the third annual Beaverton Startup Challenge.
   This is a chance for five startup companies to be headquartered in the OTBC and receive $20,000 or more, plus incubation services and meetings with investors.
  "We've seen great success from our two Beaverton Startup Challenge classes," said Mayor Denny Doyle. "In just a year and a half, challenge winners have raised more than $1.5 million in additional funding. This is a great opportunity for startups in our area."
   Early-stage businesses with ambition and potential to scale into national and international markets are encouraged to apply. 
   Applicants must have a two to five member team with at least one team member working on the startup full-time.
