Finding their way to funding: CrowdCompass lands $1.3 million — with Oregon Angel Fund contributing nearly half


Finding their way to funding: CrowdCompass lands $1.3 million — with Oregon Angel Fund contributing nearly half

This year has been a great year for funding for Portland startups. What’s more, it’s been a year where local investors have felt comfortable beginning to participate in some of that funding.

Today, we get to add another win to the list. CrowdCompass has announced a $1.3 million funding round, $600k of which came from Oregon Angel Fund.

As Mike Rogoway at The Oregonian shares, that’s the second mobile investment for OAF, recently.

Mobile apps are among the hottest technologies available, and Portland has a small but vibrant community of developers and startups focused on the sector.

Other Portland mobile companies to win backing this year include Geoloqi, Urban Airship and Meridian — which announced a $1 million round last month, also led by the Oregon Angel Fund.

What does CrowdCompass do? Well, they actually make your tradeshow or conference experience way more accessible from a mobile device.

Headquartered in Portland, Oregon’s innovative Eastside Industrial District, CrowdCompass™—the leading Mobile Device Event Platform—develops and delivers innovative, native mobile Apps for the global conference, event and tradeshow market. Our feature-packed Apps help drive revenue for you and your exhibitors, and produce better-connected, more sustainable events while dramatically improving attendees, exhibitors and event managers overall experiences.
