What we are working on


RISE Leadership Institute

Businesses have asked for resources to train their people to be better leaders—managers, directors, and officers. Onward Eugene & the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce are answering the call with a community-wide leadership training initiative launching this fall.


EUG Launchpad

Onward kicked off a 12-week virtual program that helps entrepreneurs by providing them with a step-by-step method to develop their business model and their product ideas.
