The Bend Venture Conference, hosted by EDCO, is the largest Angel Conference in the Pacific Northwest.

October 18-19, 2018

Last year, over 600 attendees, 50 prominent investors, and over 70 companies joined us for a celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation. Investments, awards, and prizes of over $1.83 million opened the opportunity for multiple winners at the 2017 conference!

The 2018 Bend Venture Conference will feature three competition categories: Early Stage, Growth Stage, and Impact with five finalists (companies) selected in each category.

  • Growth Stage Competition – this category is open to companies that have a proven concept, have generated initial revenues and are prepared to scale quickly with investment. Companies can be located anywhere in the U.S.
  • Early Stage Competition – this category is open to companies that have a great idea and are close to “proof of concept.” They are pre-revenue (or very early) and are in the process of testing their product in the market. Companies can be located anywhere in the U.S.
  • Impact Competition – this category includes for-profit companies, whose business models are integrated with a mission to have a significant and measurable social or environmental impact. Companies should be aiming to generate long-term enterprise value and attractive returns on capital. Companies can be located anywhere in the U.S.
