Join us for TiE Oregon's November edition of Pitch Club featuring Ryan Jenson CEO & founder of HoneyComb!

When: Nov. 5th 5:30pm - 8:30pm Where: DeskHub, 334 NW 11th Ave., Portland, OR 97209 Cost: TiE Members: Free; Non-members: $25 Exclusive 20% Portland Startup Switchboard Promo Code: HONEYCOMB

Mr. Jenson has experienced-based knowledge of what it takes to get even the most difficult products to market. Founding and running a company that specializes in agricultural drones (in which regulation is still being decided by the U.S. government), Ryan and HoneyComb have had to learn how to pivot and adapt while still delivering value to customers and building their company. The insight that Ryan can provide to entrepreneurs and their startups is extremely valuable in today's highly saturated and ever-changing market.

Once Mr. Jenson is finished speaking, you will have the opportunity to practice your pitches with us. You can practice investor pitches, concept pitches, sales pitches, co-founder pitches, product pitches, elevator pitches, or any other pitch you can think of. Bring your pitch and pitch deck to receive actionable and valuable feedback from fellow entrepreneurs who have been through it or are going through it. You never know, there may be an investor or two sprinkled throughout the crowd.

Not fully comfortable pitching? Come be part of the audience and learn by watching and providing feedback to others. However, it pays not to just be a watcher; you will definitely get the most benefit from this event by getting up and practicing your pitch! Many went before you, lived to tell the tale (we don’t bite!) and got a lot of actionable feedback!
