About Us


 Building health innovation in the Pacific Northwest. Inspiring world-leading entrepreneurship.


The Cascadia Venture Forum (CVF) is the premier early stage (Seed and Series A) investment forum for health innovation start-ups in the Pacific Northwest. The CVF endeavours to increase the opportunities for growth of these start-ups by facilitating more efficient capital investment through strategic partnerships of key constituents within the innovation economy. 

CVF has become foundational to the accelerated growth of a thriving health innovation ecosystem that spans the entire Pacific Northwest including British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. Our vision is to enable the Cascadia Innovation Corridor to become a world-leading cluster of health innovation entrepreneurship. 

CVF brings together fundraising CEOs, angel investors, venture capitalists, industry participants, and other health innovation ecosystem members from around the Cascadia Innovation Corridor, providing the opportunity for dialogue and relationship building, with the goal of eventual capital allocations. CVF is programming compiled by VANTEC Angel Network to build relationships within the Cascadia Innovation Corridor.
