Startup Resource Fair Info & Application
If you are interested in sponsoring or exhibiting
This informative event will bring together all the resources a startup or small business needs to start and grow their business. Your financial support makes this event free for attendees.
The Foundry Startup Resource Fair is your opportunity to connect with entrepreneurs, innovators, and small business owners here in the Mid-Willamette Valley. It’s your chance to show your stuff!
We’re hoping to feature 20 - 30 exhibitors from all around Oregon but thanks to the gracious support of the Corvallis Odd Fellows we have both sections of their facility and can accommodate many more. We’re seeking exhibitors in the following areas:
- Angel Funding, Banks, and other financial resources
- Business/Founder Mentor Groups, Accelerators, Bootcamps, and more
- Small Business Assistance programs and Government Agencies
- Educational Organizations and Resources
You'll get to connect with local and regional entrepreneurs and small businesses. You’ll also receive excellent exposure on our social media channels which rock.
This event is for all sectors - local, pre-traded and traded and it's for all industries including tech, retail, healthcare, food and beverage, artisans, and more.
Let's talk BLING!
We’ll have a number of drawings and give-a-ways, so we encourage you to consider putting together some valuable “stuff” for those drawings. Also, as you know, BLING makes the world go around so bring the usual things people love to grab.
Because we like to encourage out-of-the-box thinking we have a wonderful gift basket from Bella Vino Gift baskets filled with amazing goodies from Oregon based businesses. This goes to the exhibitor with the best BLING.
