We are grateful for this opportunity to share our vision and our early success at Venture Northwest, the premier conference for young technology companies in our region

OpenSesame (http://www.OpenSesame.com), the online elearning marketplace, is proud to announce it has been selected to present at the annual Venture Northwest conference.

OpenSesame is the first online marketplace to make buying and selling corporate elearning as easy as downloading a song from iTunes. OpenSesame’s crowd-sourced marketplace offers the broadest, deepest, and freshest selection of elearning courses, disrupting the leading providers in the highly fragmented $4.5B market.

The Oregon Entrepreneurs’ Network (OEN) organizes Venture Northwest each year to connect investors, venture capital firms and investment bankers to exciting young companies based in the Pacific Northwest. This year, OEN has selected 10 participants to present their businesses to potential investors attending Venture Northwest. According to OEN, companies presenting at Venture Northwest have raised over $1.5B in venture capital at an average of approximately $100M each year since 1996.

“OpenSesame’s mission is to unlock elearning content for companies worldwide,” said OpenSesame CEO Don Spear. “We are grateful for this opportunity to share our vision and our early success at Venture Northwest, the premier conference for young technology companies in our region.”

OpenSesame recently announced $2 million in seed funding from Portland investment group Harmony Investments, the OpenSesame management team, and the funding OpenSesame received as the winner of the Angel Oregon 2011 competition.
