The Inclusive Business Resource Network (IBRN) is a citywide program that brings multiple services for small business into a single network for entrepreneurs.

Approximately 1,000 businesses are served through IBRN each year, with the goal of serving more than 70 percent entrepreneurs of color and more than 50 percent female entrepreneurs.

At Prosper Portland we maximize our impact by working with and investing in partners who specialize in programs that serve business owners of color, immigrants, women founders, and other underrepresented communities.

Culturally specific navigators and geographically based advisors in North, Northeast, and East Portland can help you find the resources that you need and make a plan to bring your business dreams to life.

Receive support from someone you trust: one-on-one advising, training, and consultation from business advisors to help you create a road map for your business. Several partners in the Network provide loans and matched savings grants.

Dare to dream big. Learn what you need to step into the startup world of pitch decks, angel funding, and product market fit. Our partners offer startup boot camps, business incubators, and mentoring. Services that integrate with the Network include the Mercatus platform; a portfolio of capital programs such as micro loan products, seed funding and business loans; and legal support, accounting, and market research.
