It’s that time of year again. Time for startups to gather and pitch their ideas to the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network’s (OEN) Angel Oregon selection committee. With the hopes of standing on stage to pitch investors.
This year, I’m happy to report that the majority of the semi-finalists are tech startups. Which means it’s likely that—fingers crossed—a few of them will likely make it to the stage.
There are two categories for companies at OEN Angel Oregon: the Launch Stage and the Concept Stage. Launch Stage companies are startups that are further along in their development. The 25 semi-finalist Launch companies are in the running for a target total investment of more than $400,000, with the potential for a first and second place winner as selected by the Angel Oregon 2013 investors.
Here are the 16 semi-finalists that fall into typical Silicon Florist coverage (asterisks indicate Portland Seed Fund alums):
- Circle Technology
- IfWizard Corporation
- Indie Vinos, Inc.
- InGrid Solutions*
- Rally Cause
- SpinRiot, Inc.
And I don’t usually cover hardware startups. But given that this thing looks like a Cylon craft from the original Battlestar Galactica, I’m going to let it slide.
