Accelerator opens applications

Bend Outdoor Worx, a Central Oregon accelerator, is accepting applications for its next cohort starting in winter 2019.

Three companies will be selected to receive mentorships from Bend Outdoor Worx founders in areas where developing companies may be lacking.

The accelerator for outdoor product companies was conceived by Gary Bracelin, a Bend resident, in 2013.

It was launched in April 2014, when industry experts Eric Meade, Justin Rae, and Will Blount joined Bracelin. Andy Boyd joined the group in 2017.

To obtain an application go to Bend Outdoor Worx before the Dec. 31 deadline. For more information visit Bendoutdoorworx.com.
