Portland Seed Fund
Seeding Growth and Innovation in Portland
Attached is a link to information on the Portland Seed Fund. What dare you ask is this fund?
The Portland Seed Fund is a proposed new investment fund with a mission of investing solely in early stage businesses in Portland and the surrounding region. The Fund will make investments of less than $100,000 to start-ups at the earliest stage of development, and attempt to fill the most critical gap in funding for growing companies, thereby increasing job creation among start-up firms and the pipeline of viable companies for later stage investors.
The idea of VC like investment has largely been focused on tech related activities. Well I would suggest that with the continuous emergence of digital media technologies – film and video can fit. So do you have a start up out there that fits? It may be worth checking out! And for those of you not in the Portland area, let’s convince other regions to consider this idea!
