I+L Seed Fund Teams Attend 2015 Angel Oregon Showcase

Several of the I+L “Incubator+Launch” Seed Fund Teams had the opportunity to attend the 2015 Angel Oregon Showcase event in April, and see start-up companies in action pitching their ideas for venture capital investment.

I+L “Incubator+Launch” Seed Fund Teams: Humanist, Intrepid Resource Management, Nibble, Humanist, and PlanIt, had the opportunity to attend the Oregon Entrepreneurship Network’s 2015 Angel Oregon Showcase this April. 

Held at the Sentinel Hotel in Portland, they experienced first-hand how start-up companies that have gained traction with their ideas or products can pitch their ventures to investors.   At the end of the event, companies chosen by the Angel Oregon Fund members were awarded investment monies to expand their enterprises.  

The event was a practical learning opportunity for the teams in what constitutes a well-executed pitch, how traction is important, and what networking avenues are available as they progress in moving their visions and ventures forward.
