If you build outdoor gear for exploring the wilderness, you kind of want your customers out exploring that wilderness. Not simply tromping around the urban jungle.
I’m the first to admit: I don’t cover as much stuff in the Gorge as I should. There’s a ton of cool stuff happening out there. And fortunately, we’ve got a diplomat like John Metta who exposes us to it.
What’s the Gorge Angel Conference?
The Gorge Angel Conference is an educational, investment and networking event for angel investors and early stage entrepreneurs. Early stage companies will compete for a minimum pooled investment prize of $100,000. The Selection Committee, made up of the group of investors, will be reviewing and judging each application in search of the best investment opportunity. Companies must have good growth and profit potential. Early stage deals are preferred. Companies should be seeking capital within the range of $100,000 to $1,000,000 and planning to locate in the Columbia River Gorge region.
So, if you’re a startup in the Gorge—or you’re interested in relocating
closer to Full Sail to the Gorge—you’ll want to take a look at this event.
The even will be held May 19 at the Hood River Inn. For more information or to download the forms, visit the Gorge Angel Conference.
