Coffee w/ Co-Founders V
Coffee Division

Coffee w/ Co-Founders is a casual meet-up meant to foster conversations about what it's like to be a Founder of a new business. Why complain to your spouse about the challenges around your business when other people out there can relate with what you're going through. Come back, drink some coffee or tea, and have a great conversation. Who knows where it will lead?

Coffee w/ Co-Founders XVII
Coava

NOTE THE NEW TIME!

We're gonna head back over to Coava this month on the SE side of town. We hope to see everyone there as we head into the holiday season.

The format is pretty laid back. Come by, grab a cup of coffee, and network with other business owners who are working on incredible projects. We can't wait to hear what you're working on!

About Coffee w/ Co-Founders: As a business owner you are faced with many challenges. You're forced to make decisions every day that could make or break your business. Coffee w/ Co-Founders is a way to network with other Entrepreneurs to allow free flowing information with the intent to collaborate and help each other. So often we're challenged and there's very little we can do to express our challenges with the people we work with or the people we care about.

Coffee w/ Co-Founders @ Breken Kitchen
Breken Kitchen

First I'd like to apologize to all of you for not being more active. I've been a bit overwhelmed lately so I've not been able to arrange a meetup. However, it's been February since our last get together so this is long overdue!

We're hitting Breken Kitchen on the NW side of town. The space is not very large so we'll do what we can to find a place that doesn't impact the other patrons. Perhaps we can gather on their back deck. Either way, we'll have placards in the area so it's easily identifiable.

Please be sure to patronize this establishment. The worse thing we can do is show up as a big group and not at least buy a cup of coffee (thus the name).

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

About Coffee w/ Co-Founders: This event is meant to be a very informal gathering of entrepreneurs to talk about their projects, challenges, and successes. This event is not just for tech founders. We usually see all types of business owners from a variety of industries.

Please be aware that we will need to be sensitive to Coava's normal customer traffic. As such, we'll do our best to confine ourselves to the wall in the back side of the shop.

Coffee w/ Co-Founders - Early Stage Fundraising Panel
Custom House/WeWork

Fundraising for your early stage startup is difficult. It's made even more difficult with the recent trend of smaller pre-revenue funding in the region. This month we will sit down with some area panelist to discuss funding trends, funding alternatives, and what can be done to get early stage companies better access to capital that can help take their companies to the next level.

This will be a "leave your feelings at the door" conversation. We will touch on what is really to blame for the lack of early stage funding access. Whether that means looking at local and regional funding resources that seemed to have dried up, to whether founders have companies that are investible.

Panelists: Josh Carter - Manager, WeWork Labs (Moderator) Nicole Schmidt - CEO/Co-Founder @ krowdsourced Geoff Harris - Partner @ Flying Fish VC Ross Barbieri - Angel Investor/EiR @ Portland State's Business Accelerator
