Description

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.


Format:

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


Entrepreneurs:

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.


OVF Investors:

Please sign up to provide informal, constructive feedback and connections for early entrepreneurs.


Community Members (space is limited):

Come observe these inspiring entrepreneurs as they share their brilliant ideas. Hopefully you will leave inspired to present at the next Slow Pitch event!

Purpose:

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.


Our events are inclusive. ALL people who support our purpose are welcome.
