New Portland startup Madorra wins big at Thursday's Angel Oregon showcase.


Madorra's founder Holly Rockweiler says it's okay to laugh at her pitch for a non-hormonal device that treats vaginal dryness. 

"It's best to get the giggles out now," she said during her pitch session. Rockweiler's pitch later won the $200,000 grand prize at the 2017 Angel Oregon Showcase, put on by Oregon Entrepreneurs Network. Madorra also took home a $15,000 cash prize from the Portland Development Commission.

Check out these highlights from the rest of the day, including funding advice for startups and a pitch from OEN Pitchfest winner Werkhorse.
