Female Founders Pitchfest

November 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join us for a celebration of innovation, entrepreneurship, and female empowerment at the Female Founders Pitchfest, proudly presented by our generous sponsor, Kaiser Permanente. This event promises to be an inspiring showcase of local women-owned businesses in Lane County. All competing founders helped prepare by completing our “Perfect Your Pitch” workshop, led by Charla Triplett, Managing Director of Launch Oregon and Senior Venture Partner at Suncoast Ventures. Now, they are prepared to deliver their polished pitches to the panel of judges and the enthusiastic audience. After all pitches have been delivered, the judges will deliberate while presenters and attendees celebrate and network over refreshments. Winners will be announced during the networking hour.

Our panel of esteemed judges is comprised of accomplished women entrepreneurs who are deeply connected to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Eugene:

  1. Caroline Cummings: CEO of RAIN Catalysts and the CEO and founder of Varo Ventures.
  2. Shula Jaron: Founder of Fertilab and advisor at Poppy, as well as a member of CytoImage’s board of directors
  3. Anjit Kaur Anand: A seasoned venture capitalist and serial founder
