The How & Why of Promoting Entrepreneurship Abroad - Richard Boly,
Ater Wynne

The idea of US diplomats promoting the growth of entrepreneurial ecosystems through US embassies may sound odd, but Richard Boly did just that at US Embassy, Rome. Now he is proposing that a dozen embassies do the same.

Many US diplomats today have had prior careers as entrepreneurs or VCs before joining the Foreign Service. Historically, half the US Ambassadors to the countries with the 50 biggest economies have been political appointees, people like Tom Stephenson from Sequoia Capital and Rock Schnabel of Trident Capital. Richard Boly will outline the success of the program in Italy and the strategy to scale that model.

Richard Boly is a career U.S. diplomat and Hoover Institution National Security Affairs Fellow. He recently served in U.S. Embassy, Rome, where he launched and ran a program to promote entrepreneurship in Italy. Other embassy assignments include the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Paraguay. In a prior life, he founded and ran a shrimp hatchery in coastal Ecuador. He is a graduate of Stanford University and the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies at UCSD.

Join us for an interesting evening of discussion and networking with our speaker, other members, sponsors and charter members.

Event Sponsored by Ater Wynne & Reference Capital.

Vision Planning for the Community-Minded
Collective Agency

Vision planning for people who want to do something for a community.

Do you not yet have a vision statement written out, or would you like to tweak or revise? And do you say things like, "I'm hoping someone will want to contribute to my project: it is for the public good"? Then this workshop is for you.

Saturday, September 20th, 10am-12pm. Alex Linsker, Catherine Poole, and Russ Finkelstein will be the main facilitators and coaches of the workshop.

The main questions about your vision: Where are you coming from? What phrasing describes the reason why you’re doing this?

If related questions come up organically, we’ll explore. These questions are where groups like “Collective Agency” started.

Whether a website, open source project, discussion group, nonprofit startup, or something else, the main focus of the people who show up will be for the benefit of a group or groups of people (the "community"). We’ll have fun and develop a vision planning community of our own.

In 2 hours we will meet-and-greet (go around and say what we’re working on and what we’d like to happen with it), have a brief overview, then invest most of the time in one-on-one coaching in 15 minute sessions.

Coaches will each bring a vision plan for something they’ve done.

This event is free of charge. Coaching/mentoring/skill-sharing will be available here in the future with both free and paid options.

Please RSVP. Plancast is best, so people can see you're coming. Email [email protected] or tweet @alexlinsker with any questions.

There may be remodeling going on at TiE Pearl/ISITE, but Pitch Club must go on!

Join us for the last TiE Oregon Pitch Club of the year, and the last one before TiE PitchFest 2014!

After Tom's talk, we will be practicing pitches and you will get constructive and actionable feedback from attendees. If you have a slide deck, put it on a USB memory stick so we can project it (from a Windows laptop); or do a pitch without slides.

Take this last opportunity in 2014 -of course we will be back in 2015- to test drive and fine tune your pitch at Pitch Club, especially if you are thinking of competing in TiE PitchFest! (Did you apply for PitchFest yet...? https://oregon.tie.org/event/40/tie-pitchfest-2014 )
