Who are Building the Future of Oregon and Beyond

Investing with Us

We believe in the power of entrepreneurship to transform lives, industries and businesses.

We partner with passionate entrepreneurs who want to make an impact on the world by disrupting large markets with innovative solutions in the data driven enterprise, digital health technologies, consumer software and cloud-based solutions. Because building great companies has always been our passion, we are looking for determined and driven entrepreneurs who refuse to accept the status quo.

Our team strives to make your entrepreneurial journey more successful by providing the tools to help you realize your vision – from mentoring and advice to our deep operational expertise and networks of resources in Silicon Valley and beyond.

We want to give you an “unfair advantage” to build and scale your business by sharing the insight and acumen we’ve spent years honing because we’ve walked in your shoes.

Helping You Bridge the Divide Between Oregon and Silicon Valley

We each have our own story about why we work in technology outside of Silicon Valley. Although our personal journeys are unique, we share being part of a generation enabled by technology to create, build and innovate in markets outside of Silicon Valley. Still, Silicon Valley cannot be overlooked as the epicenter of innovation – where a half-century of entrepreneurial spirit and innovation has created a deeply entrenched ecosystem of relationships and experience that fosters discovery and creation. As Oregon’s premier early-stage venture capital fund, we help companies bridge the gap between Silicon Valley and Oregon to tap into that resource.  Beyond providing capital, which is critical in emerging regional technology markets, we plug you into our extended network of investment and venture partners, each with a distinct area of expertise that can help you build and scale your startup.

If you think you have the next big idea and want to partner with the right venture team to put it in motion, let’s take a walk.
