The Agora Platform links communities and capital providers on a collaborative transactional platform. It provides an online marketplace to advance community and economic development priorities by matching community needs with relevant funding sources across public, private, and philanthropic sectors.
The MCEDD region of Oregon and Washington was selected as the pilot area for development and deployment of the Platform. The Platform is available to capital providers and community leaders strategically charged with economic development in the MCEDD region. In addition, we are expanding to for additional regions in the state of Oregon in 2016.
