Join Us at an Upcoming Public Event

Expert Panel Events

These events follow a traditional panel structure with three to four experts and a moderator addressing a crowd of 20 to 70 attendees on an element of business concern to the entrepreneurial community. The key for creating value for the attendees has been through both choosing content that is applicable to early and emerging stage businesses, and through selecting panelists that can formulate their message to speak to that audience. The panels often focus on niche specific elements of sales, marketing, business development, fundraising, etc. These events run approximately 2.5 hours.

Launch Pad

This one-of-a-kind event, held annually the first weekend of May, brings together founders and core management team members of 50 diverse early-stage companies from Oregon and Washington for a full-day of interactive panel sessions on the key aspects of starting and running a business in the first 1-3 years. Participants leave with tangible knowledge and new peer connections to help them build their businesses from that day on.

It is the event that all entrepreneurs wish was available when they started their first company.
