Bend Venture Conference
October 17 @ 8:00 am - October 18 @ 4:00 pm$135 – $329
EDCO will again host the annual two-day Bend Venture Conference on Thursday, October 17 – Friday, October 18, 2019, at the iconic Tower Theatre in downtown Bend.
Last year, 600 attendees, 50 prominent investors, and over 70 companies joined us for a celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation. Over the past five years, investments, awards and prizes upwards of $10 million were awarded to 38 companies as a result of the conference.
Companies in the Impact Competition have historically competed for investments ranging from $50,000-$100,000. This year’s Early Stage Competition has received a commitment from Portland Seed Fund to invest at least $25,000 into the winning company. Growth Stage Competition finalists could collect an investment of $250,000 or more. The 2019 BVC will feature impressive speakers from across the country representing angel investors, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
