Renee Eaton, CEO of RapidMade

RapidMade, a Portland startup in 3D printing that began in the Portland State University Business Accelerator and received loan assistance from Prosper Portland for capital equipment, has expanded to a new facility to accommodate its growing engineering, prototyping and advanced manufacturing capabilities.

Company CEO Renee Eaton said Prosper Portland’s “faith in and support of RapidMade enabled us to grow our business using local resources. Six years—and several 3D printers later—we remain grateful to the agency for its willingness to work with us.”

The company has also participated in industry trade shows with Prosper Portland staff, generating new business leads and building relationships with large companies interested in their services.
