OEN’s Angel Oregon Program is a chance for entrepreneurs to hone their pitch and business plan and connect to mentors, resources, and funding opportunities.
In 2017, we’ll be offering entrepreneurs a chance to compete in our Early Stage or Concept Stage categories. The Early Stage winner will receive an investment of over $200,000; the Concept Stage winner will receive a package of goods and services (historically valued at $20,000).
Applicants to either category may also be considered for loans ranging from $25,000 – $250,000 through Business Oregon’s Small Business Expansion Program.
Additionally, women and minority entrepreneurs may be considered for cash awards (not loans, not equity!) from the Portland Development Commission of $10,000 at the Concept Stage level or a $15,000 cash award at the Early Stage level.
