MEDFORD, Ore. — The Southern Oregon Angel Investment Competition is down to the final few competitors.
Five companies in both the launch and concept categories make their final presentations on April 11th. The prize is $200,000.
The Farming Fish is one of those companies preparing for their big pitch. The company sells organic produce and naturally-raised fish. It relies on a process called aquaponics, growing the plants and raising the fish together symbiotically. This allows the company to produce with fewer resources.
The company says its seeing a huge demand for sustainable products. If the company wins, it will use the money to expand their production, creating 20 temporary jobs and two full-time jobs in the process.
