OEN PubTalk: Behind the Curtain – Why Angel Oregon Winners Win
Every year, at our Angel Oregon Showcase, we announce the winner of our Angel Oregon Investment Award. You might see the photos and news articles, but do you know what hoops the winner had to jump through to get on stage, and what considerations the investors took into account as they worked toward a final decision? At our April PubTalk, investors pull back the curtain of Angel Oregon, revealing what exactly due diligence looks like and what comprises the ‘secret sauce’ that it takes to win.
As always, the program will be preceded by time for networking and will include free appetizers and pizza. Registration begins at 5:15 p.m.
Cost: $10 for OEN members; $20 for non-members. *Sorry, no refunds.*
