Oregon Blockchain: Venture Investing in Blockchain

Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Lillis Business Complex, Room 132
955 E 13th Ave, Eugene, OR

A partnership backed by R/GA Ventures, Nike, OHSU, Intel, the state’s economic development agency Business Oregon, and blockchain research firm Smith & Crown, is taking shape this month. The venture studio, based in Portland’s Pearl district, aims to attract out-of-state blockchain leaders to apply the emerging technology to business and policy conundrums.

Investors will pump $3 million each year into the project, dubbed the Oregon Blockchain Venture Studio. The effort seeks to nurture 20 to 30 companies within the next three years. It will issue a public announcement, along with a website within a month.
