What We Do

From emerging industry trends to breakthrough technologies and business models, we help shine a spotlight on the companies that power the region’s innovation economy.

We work with our federal, state and local officials to promote public policies that ensure the continued growth and success of Oregon’s tech industry, in addition to increasing opportunities for statewide economic development.

Our events and small groups provide avenues for TAO members to build connections, share expertise and establish a collective industry voice.

We help Oregon attract and retain the nation's best tech talent by strengthening recruitment, skill development and opportunities for employees and employers.

A separate but associated program established by TAO, Innovate Oregon ignites a culture of creative problem-solving to empower the next generation of change makers in communities around the state.
