The Riveter
501 Southeast 14th Avenue
Portland, OR 97214, US (map)

Access Notes

The Riveter is accessed at street level on the exterior of the Washington High School Building on the corner of SE 14th and Stark. The space is one level.



The Riveter presents a panel discussion with Latinx founders on how they built their businesses. Our goal is to provide a platform for local, diverse entrepreneurs to have real conversations about what it takes to grow a business, when to know you have an idea worth "betting everything on" and how to overcome the toughest challenges you’ll face. Join us to hear their stories, learn how they navigate challenges and bias, and celebrate their triumphs, large and small.
