Dec 12 @ Snow Bunny Coffee
Snow Bunny Coffee

In the heart of Slabtown, Snow Bunny Coffee offers awesome drinks and bites in an open-air cafe with plenty of parking.

We will do our best to provide some signage so people can identify the group more easily. We've heard you and know that it's a bit awkward to ask, "Are you here for the meetup!" when there's nothing to identify the group.

As always, be there thinking about ways you can help your fellow founders. No selling, no solicitations, just good conversations!

See you there! Josh & Mark

Personal Brand Sprint

Portland Design Thinkers is thrilled to announce our next event with Heather Blaikie: Personal Brand Sprint

Focus on your brand, defining the path of your choosing. This session will be focused on personal brand, but can easily be done for a small business or start-up.

In this hands-on session, Heather will lead you in the method she has used as a Design Strategist for Reverence Global digital media firm and as an independent consultant.

You'll walk away with: -clear goals -outlined target audiences -keys to your niche -your secret sauce defined

This is great for consultants, entrepreneurs, job seekers, artists, and anyone wanting to communicate how Fabulous you are clearly. Past clients have found that this process gives them a chance to look at their brand differently and leave with clarity on how to position themselves. Give the gift of time to yourself, setting you up for success in 2024.

About our speaker: Heather Blaikie is an accomplished Industrial Designer, currently specializing in Sports Product Design as an M.S. Candidate at U O. With over a decade of experience, she's excelled in leading creative teams and shaping design strategies for major brands. Heather shares her expertise by teaching design-related courses and facilitating workshops. She enjoys yoga, hiking with her wife and dogs, and drag performances in her free time.

  • If outdoor seating is available and weather permits, we will be outside.
  • If you are feeling sick, stay home!
  • If you've had a recent COVID exposure, stay home!
  • If you are not vaccinated, stay home!
  • If you are otherwise considered high risk for COVID, please stay home until you feel it is safe to gather in large groups (20-40 people). We don't want to be the cause of anyone's illness or death.

You can also find us on and Google Groups.

Demolicious is BACK.....again!
UpStart Collective

Ok let's try this again. We're bringing back Demolicious, but this time we're doing this at the UpStart Collective as a monthly event.

How this all works: If you are a founder, you will apply to pitch here ( Don't worry. "Apply" simply means you want to pitch, but there's no real competitive process to be accepted. We just want to see what you're working on before we put you in front of a room full of people.

You will be given 3 minutes to pitch at the event.

The audience will be given a number to text and vote for their favorite one. The one with the most votes will go home with the Demolicious Championship belt.

The belt is not for you to keep as you will have to come back and "defend" it. However, you will be allowed to put your startup sticker (if applicable) on the belt for all to see and to live on forever in infamy!

We will post the projects/companies that will be pitching a week prior to the event. Which means you have until then to fill out the form.

Who's ready to pitch!?!
