The iconic Tower Theatre sets the stage for the BVC

Tower_Ext_Neon_Phil_Wise_Small BVC2014-0275 BVC2014-0103

As Oregon’s largest angel conference, BVC takes place in downtown Bend at the historic Tower Theatre creating a high level of entrepreneurial activity and energy. Throughout the day attendees hear company pitches, breakaway for lunch to continue high level networking at nearby restaurants and take an active role in voting to determine the Early Stage winner.

Having BVC in the heart of Bend is also tradition. The conference has been held at the Tower Theatre since its inception in 2004. After more than a decade, attendees and participants are eager each year to see how the conference will be bigger and better than the previous years.
