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.
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.
