  • TiE Oregon Pitch Club

    Zoom

    Pitch Club is an event where entrepreneurs learn the criteria and methods used by real investors to evaluate their venture as a potential investment. This is done by recreating a typical investor meeting where a few companies pitch and receive feedback from TiE Oregon Charter Members. These meetings follow the same basic agenda of an investor meeting with three sections: the pitch, Q&A, and investor discussion & decision..

    Who facilitates Pitch Club?

    Pitch Club is organized by Kari Naone, TiE Oregon Executive Director and led by Tom Kingsley, a TiE Charter Member who is an investor and successful entrepreneur.

    What to expect?

    Each attendee who intends to pitch should prepare a five minute pitch presentation. (This can include a power point projection that will be presented from your computer.) Directly after pitching a five-minute Q&A will take place, followed by a five-minute Investor Discussion & Decision).

    Those who attend pitch club will walk away with a better understanding of what investors look for in a pitch and how to answer the questions possible investor will ask. In addition, each presenter will receive a digital copy of their pitch and feedback from their peers and TiE Charter Members.

    Interested in sponsoring Pitch Club - please contact [email protected].

  • Remote Tech Talk at the Guild: Unix Philosophy & Tools

    PDX Code Guild

    Many Unix hackers avoid using an IDE when they do their work. “Unix is the IDE” they claim. In this talk, I will explain the oft-cited “unix philosophy” which permeates hacker culture and illuminates the dark path of the command line. I will then give an overview and demonstration of some of the most common and important Unix tools, such as grep, find, awk, and sed.

    Presented by PDX Code Guild Instructor Evan Hackett

    Learn How to Draw From Your Imagination

    Online

    Join us as I talk about how to improve your art skills.

    I made a goal in 2021 to paint all original artwork. In the past month, I've been painting Jesus and other characters from the Bible.

    During this hour, I'll share my methods of painting without references. Whatever time is left, we can have Q&A and a general discussion. You're welcome to share your artwork as well.

    Be inspired!
