From Cascade Angels: “We loved the creativity of this entry, which was presented in the form of a pitch deck. (And, who doesn’t love a good pitch deck?) Well played, Taylor.”
Vision/Elevator Pitch – A young professional on the edge of starting own business seeks advice and networking opportunity.
Traction/Validation – Holds previous experience at several business accelerators & fellowship at venture capital firm.
Market Opportunity – At this point, limitless.
The Problem – Soon-to-be founder looks to invest $299 into future business not BVC ticket.

Revenue Model – One-time transactional.
Growth Strategy – Ingest BVC information to improve local community and personal business.
Team – Seeking technical co-founder (but really, I am).
Financials – +$299?

Investment ‘Ask’ – Applicant is not looking for a fish; rather, looking to learn to fish.
I just moved to Bend (still unpacking the truck!) and am excited to get to know the entrepreneurial community here. After a few years as the CEO of my own start-up (EcoValuate), and after taking customer-focused design classes from Ziba Design and IDEO, I would like to share what I have learned with others through teaching and doing. My focus is on sustainable product development and effective UX design. I heard about this opportunity to attend the Bend Venture Conference and thought: yes! What a great way to jump into the Bend innovation scene!
