PORTLAND Last year, the matchmaking sent Portland-based data visualization company M-Six home with $230,000. That’s what we call love.

It’s time for Angel Oregon again, the biggest gathering of angel investors in the region. On March 5, expect to see seven companies vie for the grand prize. The total investment purse this year is $300,000, up from $225,000 last year.

This year is a little different. There are three tracks for companies to be evaluated in:  technology and biotech, consumer/active lifestyle, and sustainability. “We seem to draw a lot of tech companies,” says Sarena Regazzoni, marketing director for Oregon Entrepreneurs Network, which sponsors Angel Oregon. “And Oregon is so much more.”

OEN expects an attendance of about 320, with more than 100 accredited investors from across the region.
