Join us to celebrate the coast’s brightest startups!
In early March, RAIN launched the Mid-Coast’s first-ever Pre-Accelerator (Pre-X) for startup companies located between Lincoln City and Florence. Eleven companies have been part of the RAIN Pre-X (one Pre-X in Florence and one Pre-X in Newport serving Lincoln County). These companies will take the stage to pitch their business opportunity, share how RAIN has helped them accelerate over the last 12 weeks, and tell you “what’s next” for their coastal startup.
