Angel Food is Angel Oregon
The Angel Food Conference brings back OEN’s stories Angel Oregon Conference — which launched in 2005 and facilitated the investment of more than $3.7 million into Oregon and Southwest Washington startups. With Angel Oregon, OEN is building on that successful track record while integrating significant educational support and mentoring throughout the process—something OEN was unable to do when startups from multiple sectors were competing. Investment + mentorship and education is a smart investment! OEN is committed to continuing its tradition of catalyzing startup capital and building the successful businesses of the future.
