PORTLAND There’s more to a good elevator pitch than words per minute. It helps if your products speak for themselves. That was the key for the start-ups who won over investors in one minute or less at the recent Angel Oregon “elevator pitch” contest. The winners were Gadget Trak, Trellis Earth and UV Cleaning. Portland-based Gadget Trak combats “iCrime” (not to mention “i lost my phone again”) by installing software that enables owners to recover stolen laptops and lost mobile phones. Trellis Earth, also of Portland, makes biodegradable cups, bowls and bags. Beaverton-based UV Cleaning Systems develops purification systems to remove bacteria, molds and viruses from water and air. All three companies are up and running, and seeking investors.

The big news at Oregon Business is we’re getting a ping pong table. After reading the descriptions of the 2015 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon, a disproportionate number of which feature table tennis in the office, I decided it was time to bring our own workplace into the 21st century.

Pets.com, GeoCities, eToys, and WorldCom … blasts-from-the-past that all signify the late 1990s Internet bubble. Yet we believe the dynamics of the market, specifically in technology stocks, are much different today than it was during the late 1990s.
