Pitch Oregon

Are you an innovative entrepreneur with a groundbreaking idea? Pitch Oregon is your platform to shine! We are thrilled to announce not just one, but three electrifying pitch competitions, each set to take place in different counties across Oregon and SW Washington.

Our mission? To provide equity investment opportunities, cash prizes and professional services to traded sector, technology, and tech-enabled early-stage startups.
