The Sentinel Hotel

TiE Oregon, TiE Seattle, TiE Vancouver BC and TiE Rockies are coming together to host the first-ever TiECon Northwest in Portland Oregon on January 25-26th. This 1.5 day conference will bring together entrepreneurs and investors and will highlight three disruptive technology sectors – Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Healthcare, and Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality/Mixed Reality.

The possibilities seem huge and there is tremendous hype, full of great buzzwords and slogans but for investors and entrepreneurs, key questions still exist regarding these technologies:

What is the value? How can such value be unlocked? Is now the right time? What are the specific approaches, applications and markets that these technologies can be utilized in? What do these sectors need in order to continue to grow? Join us at TiECon Northwest as we bring together experts in these sectors for interactive panel discussions, keynotes, and opportunities to network with entrepreneurs and investors throughout the northwest.

PITCH NORTHWEST The conference will end with a pitch competition, Pitch Northwest!

Pitch Competition Criteria Pitch Northwest is available to pre-series A companies from all industries. The company must be headquartered in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Idaho, or British Columbia. You must have a minimal viable product, must have customer validation and are looking for funding to scale.

Prizes

The over-all winner will receive a check for $3,000 --- we are still fundraising so this purse is very likely to increase! The people's choice winner will receive a check for $1,000 - again, we are still fundraising so this purse is very likely to increase! THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT APPLICATIONS IS FRIDAY DECEMBER 30TH
