MEDFORD, Ore. — Local companies can apply for a chance to win a $200,000 investment.
A group of investors with the Southern Oregon Regional Economic Development, Inc. hope to see a last minute rush of applicants. The application deadline for companies is Friday, February 28th.
Organizers at SOREDI did not have an exact number of how many startup companies have applied so far, but they said they intend to see a high number of last-minute applicants. Organizers say the sooner the companies get started, the sooner they can start recieving advice from investors to help their business pitch.
Alex Pawlowski with SOREDI explains, “There’s a rule of thumb, how coachable are you? So you can’t think you have the world by the tail and that you know everything. So those that are willing to participate dive into it.”
The SOREDI Angel Investment Network Conference will be held on Wednesday, April 30th. at Bigham Knoll in Jacksonville.
