Amplion Research is kicking 2015 off with a bang. The Bend-based startup announced that it has closed a $1 million seed round, led by Seven Peaks Ventures, which is also here.
Scott Oliphant discovered Bend six years ago on a motorcycle trip. After some misadventures on the road, he ended up here to recharge and Bend stayed on his mind long after he returned to Texas. He saw the opportunity to move his company, Impossible Engine, here in 2014 from Austin.
