Elevate Capital is Oregon’s first institutional venture capital fund that specifically targets investments in underserved entrepreneurs—such as women and ethnic minorities, or those with limited access regionally to capital and opportunities. Elevate supports visionaries with disruptive ideas and products through two specialized investment vehicles.

Elevate serves a range of industries across the early stage spectrum—from food to outdoor apparel, from biotech to software. Along with mentorship, we bring seed stage funding and early stage funding to visionaries with disruptive ideas and products. Since August 2016, Elevate has invested $4.6M in diverse startups across Oregon.

We are proud to provide startup funding and guidance to these great Pacific Northwest companies—and help bring their success stories forward.
