Southern Oregon Angel Investment Network is offering an estimated $125,000 for start-ups or expanding businesses.

The network extended the deadline until Friday for applicants to pay a $99 "early bird" fee, it announced. After that, the application fee will be $149 until the Jan. 7 deadline.

In January investors will begin to narrow business plans to a group of finalists who will present at the first Southern Oregon Angel Conference on March 9 at the Rogue Valley Country Club.

To compete, businesses must submit plans through www.southernoregonangelinvestors.com.
