PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR FACILITIES ARE CURRENTLY NOT OPEN TO VISITORS DUE TO THE PANDEMIC
We have built a space that helps to de-risk growth and provide mentoring for biomedical startups
OBI is located at 4640 S Macadam Ave. in Portland. Some of the unique features of the OBI space are:
- Unique Laboratory Space: 20,000 sq. ft. new BSL-2 labs, offices and meeting space
- Shared Scientific Equipment: Access to cost-prohibitive shared equipment (fume hood, tissue culture facilities, heavy equipment and meeting space)
- Specialized Mentoring: Entrepreneurs-in-Residence and unique Mentoring Program to assess company needs, identify and reach milestones and accelerate companies’ growth. Entrepreneurial training via workshops, peer-mentoring, etc.
- Collaboration: Share resources, ideas and space with regional incubators and accelerators. Networking Events, Startup CEO Roundtables, Lunch and Learn Opportunities
- MathWorks Accelerator & Incubator Program: Client companies have access to MathWorks Accelerator and Incubator Program benefits

More about the OBI
Entrepreneurial Educational Programs
OBI offers monthly Lunch & Learns on a wide variety of topics of interest to entrepreneurs. We also have a structured 6-month Mentoring Program offered twice a year, an informal Advising Program, Happy Hours for networking, and other events throughout the year. These programs are free of charge.
Co-working Space (Available now)
OBI has developed a new Digital Health Annex with dedicated desks available for rent on a month-to-month basis. Our shared space is a great way to collaborate with other Digital Health IT companies while still having a place to call your own.
Private Offices & Lab Space (Waiting list)
In addition to the co-working space in the annex, the OBI has private offices and lab space. Currently all of these spaces are occupied, but if you are interested in learning more about our private offices or lab space, please fill out the form in the blue button below, or join us during our next facility tour when we are back onsite later in 2021.
