TiECon Northwest & Pitch Northwest
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.


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

TiE Oregon Women - Pitch Competition
Zoom Webinar

TiE Women is dedicated to Embrace, Engage and Empower women entrepreneurs across the globe.

TiE Oregon is hosting its first TiE Women Pitch Competition on September 2nd. This will be a virtual event and the same as our regular Pitch Competitions, with one twist: all the participating companies must have a woman in their Founding team.

The winner will get the opportunity to attend the TiE Global Mega Pitch Competition in Dubai in December where they will compete for a $100k prize against women-led startups from all over the world. Three Runners-up will also be selected for an accelerator workshop.

Our Committee will review the applications and select six finalists (and two back-ups) to present on stage. We pair each of the finalists with a team of TiE Charter Members for coaching and mentoring in the run-up to the Pitch Competition. While using this resource isn’t mandatory, we have found that the most successful companies engage with and use the feedback from their “champions.”
