Join Oregon Venture Fund and PDXWIT for Fast Pitch.

Calling all entrepreneurs! Got an idea that you think has potential, but you want some experts to weigh in? Or perhaps you are already making your dream a reality, have some investment and want to keep your momentum going? Perhaps you’re somewhere in between. Get in front of Oregon Venture Fund investors so they can provide informal, constructive feedback and connections. 90% of OVF investors have started or run a business at some point in their career, and this is a no-pressure way to tap into their connections and get early feedback from these local entrepreneurs and tech leaders.

4:00 PM - Doors Open / networking
4:30 PM - Entrepreneur Pitches (2 minutes each)
5:15 PM - Entrepreneurs and investors connect
6:00 PM - Event ends

Sign up to get feedback on your business or idea, with the understanding that no business is too early or incomplete. Find out if you’ve got something that will grab the attention of investors. Learn about the current menu of local funding sources.
