Southern Oregon angel investors seek new businesses

The Southern Oregon Angel Investment Network is looking for its fourth round of promising businesses.

The network is calling for the next round of business plans to compete for an estimated $200,000 investment at the April 30 Angel Network Conference. Investors are inviting launch-stage companies, start-ups and entrepreneurs to submit their plans by Feb. 28.

Since 2011, 52 angel investors have participated in three investments totaling $680,000, beginning with Folium Partners of Ashland, which received $300,000 for its e-book and audiobook apps. That was followed by Montrue Technologies of Ashland, collecting $160,000 in 2012 for an emergency room information system, and JettStream of Bend, which earned backing of $220,000 earlier this year for its dispenser used to administer medicine for children with asthma.
