Bend Venture Conference

October 15, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Bend Venture Conference (BVC), hosted by EDCO, connects Impact, Early Stage and Growth Stage companies with investment opportunities.

Now in its 17th year, the BVC is the largest Angel Conference in the West. This premier regional event attracts top entrepreneurs, investors and business leaders from across the country. Over the past six years, more than $11 million has been invested in 38 companies as a result of the conference. This year’s conference will take place both in-person in Bend, Oregon, and virtually online on October 15-16, 2020. See below for COVID-19 health and safety precautions.

Thursday, October 15 & Friday, October 16, 2020

BVC 2020 will look a little different than in previous years. Smaller gathering sizes will be in place as we utilize multiple venues across Downtown Bend. Masks, wellness surveys and temperature checks will be required. Social distancing and other guidelines will also be in place.

While the format and execution may look and feel a bit different this year, the impact for start-up companies remains the same. Join us as we make a difference for entrepreneurs!
