This Month's Lineup

Big IDEA Feature: Allen Alley of The Alley Group and Obsidian Opportunity Fund

Allen Alley

Allen Alley is the Managing Member of The Alley Group, an early stage venture capital firm that focusses on Software-as-a-Service companies with unique value propositions. He is also co-founder and President of Obsidian Opportunity Funds, a firm that manages renewable energy investments in designated “Opportunity Zone” communities.

Allen was the Founder, President, and CEO, of Pixelworks, a semiconductor company based in Tualatin, Oregon that provides integrated circuits for plasma and liquid crystal display televisions and screens. Founded in 1997, Allen led Pixelworks from startup to IPO in only three years, eventually growing it to a global company with approximately 500 employees at offices in Portland, San Jose, Tokyo, Taipei and Shanghai. He was also part of the executive team who led the growth of InFocus Systems, Inc. in Wilsonville, Oregon from a startup company to a $250 million global enterprise.

Allen graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Minor Emphasis in Business and worked with Ford and Boeing in his early career. Many Oregonians are likely to know Allen either personally or politically for his “walk across Oregon” in August 2009, when he spent 36 days walking the state from East to West.

Over 30 years, Allen has built a unique experience base that spans multiple disciplines from engineering to marketing, venture capital, entrepreneurship and public service.

Allen has served on numerous corporate and community boards and advisory groups. Friends and associates who serve with him will confirm that he is tireless with his time and attention to each of these efforts.

Allen enjoys a variety of interests including public policy, autonomous vehicles, travel, photography, non-fossil energy alternatives, technology, wine and just about every sport on earth. He and his wife Debbie have been married for over 36 years, and they have three grown children and two rapidly growing grandsons.

Tim Hasty

Klamath Tangent

Tim Hasty is an Oregon native and is currently pursuing an engineering degree at Oregon Tech.

A lover of outdoors and all things active, he has traveled extensively throughout Europe and the Americas with his wife. He discovered that most commercially available luggage did not fit their active travel needs.
