The Bend Venture Conference, hosted by EDCO, is the largest angel conference in the Pacific Northwest. It’s also happening Oct. 15-16 at Bend’s Tower Theatre, where five finalists for the BendBroadband Early Stage Award will compete for a $15,000 prize that we’re proud to fund!

Here’s what SnoPlanks told us last month about the company and how it would spend the $15,000 if it wins the BendBroadband Early Stage Award:

How SnoPlanks would spend $15,000: Equipment to increase production allowing them to bring on larger clients and grow the workforce.
