Where in Portland will NVC Take Place?

The 20th annual New Venture Championship will take place at the University of Oregon in Portland at the White Stag Building and the beautiful Hotel Monaco.

The White Stag Building is home to the University of Oregon in Portland as part of the White Stag Block, located just west of the Burnside Bridge off of NW Naito Parkway, in Portland’s Old Town District. The White Stag is named after the history of the building itself, which once housed ‘White Stag Sporting Goods’ in 1931. The historical light-up Made in Oregon sign, which still stands above the block, features an actual outline of a white stag; however, the words Made in Oregon were replaced with Portland, Oregon on November 17th, 2010. The White Stag block is composed of the White Stag, Skinner block, and Bicklel block buildings, all three of which were merged and renovated in 2008. The facility is now incredibly sustainable, with a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification. The complex features green aspects from its basement to the roof, and holds lecture halls, large event spaces, studios, labs, and the Duck Store.

Hotel Monaco- “Art Lives Within

Hotel Monaco Street View

The motto of this luxury hotel upholds its story: Designer Cheryl Rowley revolutionized what once was a building of 1912 Edwardian art into a dramatic and colorful four-star hotel located in the center of Portland’s business district. On each floor, you will find pieces of the hotel’s art collection, composed of numerous Northwest artists. The evening wine reception, in the Monaco’s living room, provides canvas, paint, and brushes to create your own work too. The location of Hotel Monaco couldn’t be more convenient for Portland visitors. Within walking distance, you will find Pioneer Square, the Pioneer Place Shopping Pavilion, the Waterfront Park, and dozens of delicious restaurants. The MAX line provides easy transportation up and down the downtown blocks.
