New Sponsor! Rogue Venture Partners


Rogue Venture Partners LogoWe are pleased to welcome new #PDXSW sponsor Rogue Venture Partners! Rogue VP’s mission is to “make Oregon relevant by investing in disruptive entrepreneurs.” They invest specifically and intentionally in Oregon. Rogue VP especially values entrepreneurs who reject the status quo and are driven by market traction — with strong ingenuity, insight and intelligence!

The investor group is well-connected in Oregon’s entrepreneur ecosystem, involved closely with PIE, TIE, OEN, PSF, PSBA, Angel Oregon — to name a few. Their current portfolio includes Keen Healthcare (whose co-founder Jerry Carleton inspired participants as a speaker at PDXSW’s April 2012 event), and five other companies.

Rogue Venture Partners also sponsored this year’s Portland State Startup Weekend. In addition, managing partner Tom Sperry served as a team mentor during the weekend.

Thank you Rogue Venture Partners for your #PDXSW sponsorship and commitment to Oregon entrepreneurship!
