SOREDI is now accepting applications for its inaugural Southern Oregon Rural Startup Challenge, providing up to $60,000 in capital investments to rural startups and companies seeking expansion capital. Applicants who submit business plans up until January 31, 2021 may be invited to present at a virtual event on Wednesday, February 17. Investors will then choose up to three companies from among those competing at the event for investments to be made shortly thereafter. Additional Rural Oregon Startup Challenges are planned to occur later in 2021 and again in early 2022.
SOREDI, which has facilitated the Southern Oregon Angel Investment Network for numerous years, has created a seed fund for the Southern Oregon Startup Challenge, at which rural high- potential startups will compete for potentially three $20,000 investments.
