About this Program
Community supported. Investor driven. Professionally managed. Investing in 4-6 of the most promising growth companies in Oregon and SW Washington each year.
Our Investment Focus
Thank you for considering the Oregon Angel Fund for your financing needs! The Oregon Angel Fund (OAF) seeks to invest in 4-6 early-stage growth companies each year. You may submit your materials at any time. Our investors will review your plans and one of our fund managers will provide you with feedback and next steps.
Criteria for applying companies:
• Must be based in Oregon or SW Washington
• May operate in any industry
• Should be seeking $100K to $3M in investment
• Should offer potential for a venture-type return -- i.e., 10X within 5 years
Ideal applicants have:
• Developed their product/service beyond the concept stage
• “Skin in the game” in the form of sweat equity and money from founders, family, and friends
• Founding teams with relevant demonstrated success
• A solid plan for taking their product to market, and some early traction
First-time founders and companies at the concept stage or with little invested to date may still apply – they should simply expect the bar to be higher for the company to receive funding.
The application and due diligence process is designed to be straightforward, transparent, efficient, and constructive for both the entrepreneur and participating investors. You may update your application and your uploaded materials at any time. The online application is designed to capture the most important details about each business in a straightforward and secure manner. A short business plan is required; entrepreneurs can post additional supporting documents throughout the due diligence process, including an executive summary, financial plan, presentations, term sheets, investment subscription docs, company updates, customer letters, and anything else that may aid OAF members in their due diligence.
The Oregon Angel Fund prefers equity investments, but is open to convertible debt for earlier-stage companies. We often lead the rounds we invest in, but may also follow other established investors when they lead. Investments range from $100K to $2M depending on company stage and the nature of the round.
We hope you will apply to OAF if your business seems like a good fit of our fund. If you're not sure, please contact us - we are always happy to discuss business with entrepreneurs!
