About Event

Venture funding has been a key catalyst to economic growth and job creation in Oregon. Elevate Capital is proud to be the leading diversity-focused Fund in the State, deploying over $20M to nearly 60 Oregon companies over the last 8 years, with a particular focus on women, BIPOC, minority, LGBTQ+, and other historically underserved founders.

On May 30, our flagship event, Elevate Oregon, will bring together founders, experienced investors, community leaders, and elected officials to shine a spotlight on upcoming companies in our region and put our collective intelligence together to improve the future of Oregon’s startup landscape. We will hear from the region’s most promising diverse leaders, with dynamic opportunities to explore emerging trends and co-create solutions to foster innovation in our community. Elevate Oregon is intentionally creating space for aspiring diverse founders, investors, and supporters passionate about contributing thought leadership to the local ecosystem.

Whether you are an aspiring founder, experienced investor, or simply curious about Oregon’s startup scene and Elevate Capital, join us May 30 as we celebrate the impact of investing in diversity, create valuable insights for our community, and chart a course forward to grow the opportunity for diverse founders to make an economic difference in Oregon.
