Opportunity Cafe

Tigard’s Opportunity Café is a business incubator providing an entrepreneur critical ingredients like space and advising to start their business. 

The 400 square foot micro-café located in the Tigard Public Library is a key asset in an economic mobility program reducing start-up costs for first-time entrepreneurs. It also gives Library patrons their #1 most requested improvement, a café! 

Every two years, possibly more frequently, a new entrepreneur will be invited into this space to launch their business. The products and people you meet here will change over time as entrepreneurs learn how to run a business, perfect their craft, and advance to new opportunities.

Thanks to Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon (MESO) for partnering with us to launch and manage this business incubator.  MESO will advise and give guidance to each entrepreneur as they grow their business.

Meet the Entrepreneur
Starting September 2021, you will see the Opportunity Café transform into El Cuadrilatero, a new eatery run by entrepreneur Israel Martinez. We’ll share more details soon!
