  • Support job creation and economic development in Oregon. An OEN sponsorship not only pairs your name with a respected local nonprofit, but supports our mission to drive job growth and earn Oregon a national reputation as a hub of innovation and entrepreneurship.

OEN Entrepreneurship Awards

The OEN Entrepreneurship Awards are a celebration of boldness, ingenuity, resilience, teamwork and community. Join the Oregon and SW Washington entrepreneurial community on Wednesday, November 6th for a sparkling evening of connection and celebration as we honor the local entrepreneurs making us all proud.

Partnering with OEN is one of the best ways to support entrepreneurship and develop
lasting relationships in the Pacific Northwest. By sponsoring the annual OEN
Entrepreneurship Awards, we honor the achievement of our region’s entrepreneurs while
ensuring their continued support through OEN. We cannot think of a better way to invest.

Oregon Angel Food Conference

Oregon Angel Food (affectionately known as OregonAF) is so named because one company will be selected for angel investment (“Shark Tank” style) by a group of local investors at the end of the program. In addition to the OregonAF Grand Finale – during which finalist food entrepreneurs will make their last pitch to investors on the main stage – the entire venue will be taken over by a local food Marketplace featuring craft food and beverage entrepreneurs from around the Pacific Northwest.

When my co-founder and I discovered OEN, it was like being welcomed into an extended family. Suddenly, we had a friendly, helpful community that we could call on when we got stuck or needed advice.

OEN PubTalk

PubTalks are OEN’s flagship networking events where we invite everyone in the entrepreneurial community to gather to connect and learn from and about entrepreneurs! Each PubTalk features pitches from up-and-coming founders looking to spread the word about their company, as well as a panel of experienced entrepreneurs speaking on a timely topic.

When we started our business a few years ago I had attended some local business meet-and-greets and I felt that they were a waste of time. So I stopped going to them. This is NOT the case with OEN. Every OEN PubTalk I’ve attended I’ve learned something new, or met a valuable connection or resource.”
