Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN) is hosting their signature event this year, a Food & Beverage Showcase, on October 2, 2018 at the Leftbank Annex. While OEN’s Angel Oregon event was put on hiatus this year, the Food & Beverage Showcase promises similar excitement, with entrepreneurs, distributors, investors, retailers, and more in one place to showcase the amazing Oregon food and beverage industry. This year, companies will pitch their products in the hopes of winning a prize package, which include shelf space at retailer Green Zebra, legal and accounting services, and design and packaging services. We’re pleased to sponsor this event, and look forward to a delicious day of culinary innovation.
Portland Business Journal reporter Malia Spencer spoke to Maggie Finnerty, president and executive director of OEN, about the event. “Finnerty expects about 50 companies from around the state to participate,” her article notes. “The large initial group will be whittled down during the week of Sept. 17 with qualifying pitch events before investors and industry experts at locations across the state.”
