The Software Association of Oregon and Oregon Technology Business Center (OTBC), with assistance from TiE Oregon and other supporters are organizing a project to stimulate the creation of a high growth startup company in the Smart Grid domain.


  Event Details

  We are inviting experienced entrepreneurs, professionals and business leaders who have a passion for getting involved in a startup with a focus on smart grid. The goal is to create influential high-growth companies in the Smart Grid domain. This is NOT a project to create a life style company for the founders or to help those seeking a job, consulting assignment or basic education on the Smart Grid.

  The project will comprise a series of 3 evening sessions from 6pm to 9pm at OTBC on:

  Monday October 19th, Tuesday October 27th, and Tuesday November 10th

  Price of admission is $100, a serious interest in starting a growth company, ability to commit time between sessions to research and at least one real business idea in the Smart Grid domain.

  Experienced professionals in the technology, energy or related fields are encouraged to participate. Applicants who are chosen to participate will be expected to come prepared to work on smart grid business ideas and attend all three sessions.
