Who will win the Big Check? Six growth-stage finalists are still in the running for OEN’s Angel Oregon Spring 2016 Investment Award.
Five early-stage finalists are also competing for packages of goods and services, which include free office space, legal services, accounting services, forecasting sessions, and PR and financial consulting.
From a record 101 applications, these 11 finalists have survived four rounds of judging and will be presenting at OEN’s Angel Oregon 2016 Showcase. There, we will announce the investment award winner and the audience will vote on two early-stage winners.
Our annual Showcase is Oregon’s premier pitch event, featuring the state’s most exciting up-and-coming entrepreneurs. (Nab your seat here!) A total of 18 up-and-coming companies will present to hundreds of local investors and business leaders. At the end of the day, one of the six growth-stage finalists below will walk away with an investment of $200,000 to $300,000.
