The Oregon Angel Fund (OAF) is a highly structured, professionally managed, investor-driven angel fund comprised of some of Oregon’s most successful and influential business leaders. OAF operates independently of, but in close collaboration with Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN). OEN does not have a financial interest in OAF. Several organizations donate time and resource to operate the fund, including OEN, Capybara Ventures, Ater Wynne, Geffen Mesher, and local MBA programs.
OAF encourages veteran and new angel investors to â€œlearn by doing,â€ with the aim of increasing the number of active local angel investors and funded startups in Oregon and SW Washington. OAF’s one-year investment horizon is designed to encourage decision-making, diversification, and learning, as well as to further position PAN as the most-active venue for funding startups in Oregon and SW Washington.
Comprised of 50+ accredited investors, OAF seeks to invest in four early-stage growth companies per year. Investments may be made in companies operating in any industry and targeting any market.
To be considered for an investment by OAF, a company must apply to PAN and be selected to present at a PAN meeting. Companies cannot apply directly to OAF. An investment decision could be made as quickly as 8-10 weeks after a company applies, however, actual time-to-funding may take longer. While all OAF members are PAN and WIN members, other PAN and WIN members may desire to invest in a company alongside OAF or independent of OAF.
