OEN Angel Oregon 2016 Showcase
OEN’s Angel Oregon Showcase is your opportunity to nurture breakthrough ideas, discover new markets, and make invaluable business connections.
Join over 300 investors, entrepreneurs, and business leaders to get a sneak peek at Oregon’s most exciting up-and-coming companies!
Online registration has closed, but we will be accepting walk-ins. The cost is $120 for OEN members and $170 for non-members. Hope to see you there!
Sorry, no refunds at this time.
Held annually each April, the Showcase represents a culmination of our Spring Angel Oregon Investment Program for angel investors and entrepreneurs.
During the investment program, growth-stage companies compete for an investment award and early-stage companies compete for a valuable package of goods and services, all while receiving valuable coaching from angel investors and serial entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, new angel investors have a chance to learn about angel investing, conduct due diligence, and network with experienced investors.
At our annual Showcase, finalist companies present their pitches to a crowd of over 300 investors, business leaders, and entrepreneurs. One winner is awarded a check, historically ranging from $200,000-300,000. (See past winners
.) During the day, you’ll also hear pitches from other up-and-coming companies across multiple sectors, participate in Q&A, see the showcased products and services in action at our display area, and vote on your favorite company.
