Colby Aley is a 16 year old web developer, High School student and entrepreneur. He enjoys working with early stage startups, going from nothing to launched product. After starting his first (failed) company not knowing how to code, Colby decided never again to do so without more solid programming skills. His influencers include Sam Soffes of Nothing Magical and Maciej Ceglowski of Pinboard.

Jackson Gariety attended Grant High School 2009 to 2012, he started doing freelance web design in early 2009. His first clients were local businesses and slowly grew his abilities and network to pay for better design and development tools. In 2012 he started working with Brian Hendrickson to build a social web platform called HashTraffic which has been developed and is currently being sold. He also teaches a class on app development.

Andrew Oesterreich is a 12 year old 7th grade entrepreneur who attends Wood Middle School in Wilsonville. He started out by doing odd jobs for his neighbors then moved on to giving younger students drum lessons. Last fall, he ventured in on a duct-tape wallet business with 2 friends. It wasn't long til half of the school had a shiny new duct tape wallet. He loves shark tank and is always looking for new businesses to create.

The emcee for The Dog Ate My Startup and open QA event is the always funny, the sometimes sober, and the ever flatulent John Friess, founder and CEO of Journey Gym.
