About this Program

EDCO's Bend Venture Conference (BVC) provides visibility and investment opportunities for Impact, Early Stage and Growth Stage companies.

Our Investment Focus


Welcome. We are glad you are here! You are why we exist. Please read all the information below. Reach out with any questions:

The Bend Venture Conference, held on October 20 & 21, 2022 in Bend, OR, is the signature event for entrepreneurial activity in the Pacific Northwest. The major objectives of this event are to provide exposure and investment opportunities for entrepreneurs and build an engaged community of investors in Central Oregon.

The event attracts over 600 attendees, many of whom come from beyond Central Oregon (50% of attendees come from outside the region). Investments, awards, and prizes have totaled over $10 million in the last five years, making BVC the largest angel conference in the West.

The BVC Impact Fund selects companies based on:

       -  For-profit enterprises aiming to generate significant long-term enterprise value and attractive returns on capital
       -  Companies must have a component of their core business that generates a definitive and measurable impact on their community, region, or industry.
       -  Companies can be located anywhere in the U.S.
       -  Early/Growth companies apply here.

We welcome all start-ups, and companies that are in Outdoor, Food/Agriculture, Climate Resiliency, Biotech, and Software/Tech will be preferred, given the expertise of the Central Oregon community of investors.
The BVC event information is available on the website -
All applications to BVC will be reviewed with the event in mind. The assumption is that all companies that apply to this are prepared to participate in the due diligence, have the business presented as a part of the Conference event, and have SAFEs (or equivalent) ready to receive investment.

*Bend Venture Conference cannot guarantee that investments will be made in any specific amount because the final amounts to be awarded are dependent on investment commitments received from third-party investors and the ability of the winning companies and the investors to agree on the terms and conditions of the investment.
