Capital Scan 2022
Unlocking Opportunity: Oregon Capital Scan 2022 Report Reveals Landscape of Vital Funding for Oregon Entrepreneurs
Access to capital allows businesses and entrepreneurs to finance their ideas, expand their operations, and create jobs. It’s particularly important for underserved and underrepresented communities, who may face greater barriers to traditional financing sources.
The Oregon Capital Scan 2022 is the only report of its type in the state — a useful resource to help investors and entrepreneurs understand the sources of capital that exist and in which regions of the state to make the effort to access capital a bit easier. The 2022 edition is uniquely important because it looks at capital in Oregon during a time when the pandemic and fires changed our state in countless ways.
These last few years in Oregon illustrate when everyone recognized where and how capital matters. The question we should all have now is - ‘what's next?’ And the answer is, ‘we are not done.’ Matching capital to extraordinary opportunities in this state is our collective call to action.
