Continuous Web: Fail Up
Cloudability

We are incredibly stoked about this month's Continuous Web topic and know you will be too!

May's event will showcase Brad Heller, Co-Founder of Revisu, a PDX-based startup and PIE graduate. With Revisu, creatives can engage anyone at any point in the creative process to share their work and collect feedback so there are no surprises when a deadline arrives.

Brad will chat about the ups and downs, what he learned, and why he ultimately decided to close the doors on Revisu. He hopes that he can help fellow entrepreneurs avoid some pitfalls he experienced.

Today, Brad is the Lead Engineer at Cloudability.

FailPDX
Puppet

FailPDX was created out of direct response to a lot of the meetups and conferences that seemed to be focused on all of the good things about being part of startup and taking chances. The truth is, success is a unicorn. FailPDX was created to remind people that failure is inevitable. This group is a place where everyone can come together to listen and share their failure stories.

Fail PDX
Cloudability

We are excited to present two failed presenters for January.

Isaac Porras: People turning to Kickstarter to fund their awesome ideas should take a lesson from Isaac Porras. He is the second most failed creator on Kickstarter, with nearly 30 failed projects. If you are planning to Kickstart a project you shouldn’t miss Isaac share his cringe worthy stories of continued Kickstarter fails.

Corey Guidry: Imagine, having a solid head start in online food delivery services in a young tech city like Portland. 8 months before Caviar, Uber Eats and Post Mates were operating, Delivery Dudes had the open Portland market in it’s sights. What happened? With such a head start, you’d think Delivery Dudes would be thriving in Portland, instead the project failed. Let’s learn about this business and hear this Fail first hand by one of the Portland Partners Corey Guidry.

Each presenter will speak for 7-10 minutes followed by Q/A there will be some time for socializing before and afterward.
