About SoothieSuckers: www.soothiesuckers.com Soothie Suckers delivers good health in great tasting, all-natural, herbal, freezable treats! Soothie Suckers come in three formulas: Immune Booster, Cold Fighter and Sore Throat Relief. "It's the cool way to feel better."

Marietta Harrison - Soothie Sucker's Founder, CEO, & Mom Marietta Harrison is a true "mompreneur." About 15 years ago, before most pediatricians stopped prescribing antibiotics for many common ailments, Marietta lost faith in the medical community. Relying on her own research and input from friends and fellow parents familiar with natural medicine, she began creating her own herbal remedies and mixing them with fruit juices to help treat her own children.

Years later, while brainstorming with her husband, musician Michael Allen Harrison, and his sister, they came up with the idea to put natural medicines into ice pops. As they began to move forward with their idea, they were amazed at the lack of products available to treat children for colds and other illnesses. Marietta's experience with adding herbal medicines to her children's fruit juice helped them develop a great tasting and effective product - and Soothie Suckers were born.

OEN PubTalk™ - Eat, Drink and Start a Business
Backspace

Oregon continues to build on its reputation as the place to go for artisan beer, wine, and spirits. The July OEN Pubtalk™ features a panel of experts who are on the forefront of that movement and who know what it takes to build a successful brewery, winery, and distillery. Panelists include leadership from Ninkasi Brewing Company, Seven Bridges Winery, and Bull Run Distillery. Kerry Finsand, CEO of Taplister will be moderating.

Come hear experienced entrepreneurs share their unique insights into developing quality products, arranging supply channels, and maneuvering regulatory requirements, among other topics.

Speakers:

Ninkasi Brewing Company – Nikos Ridge, President and CEO

Ninkasi Brewing began on June 15th, 2006 when Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge spent 17 hours brewing their first batch of Total Domination IPA in leased space inside a German restaurant in Springfield, Oregon. Once a brewery, the building was equipped with a 15 barrel brew house set up for brewpub brewing. A year later, Ninkasi moved to its current location at 272 Van Buren Street, in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene.

The brewery now features a 50 barrel brewing system, and uses it to produce beer that is distributed throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and San Francisco. The Ninkasi family of beers has grown from a single IPA (Total Domination) to include Tricerahops Double IPA, Believer Double Red, and Oatis Oatmeal Stout, as well as some popular seasonals: Spring Reign, Radiant Ale, and Sleigh'r Dark Double Alt.

Bull Run Distilling Company – Lee Medoff, President and CEO

Naturally pure water, the finest raw grains and sugar, precise barrel aging and an ideal blend of art and science. These are the elements that define Bull Run Distilling Company. Bull Run Distilling Company are producers of small-batch, crafted distilled Rum, Whiskey and an revolving collection of other unique spirits sold only at our distillery under our Temerance label.

Bull Run Distilling Company (BRD) was founded by acclaimed Portland distiller, Lee Medoff, and business partner Patrick Bernards in the spring of 2010. What began as a "what if" conversation over cocktails a few years ago evolved into a full-on crusade in late 2009. Hundreds of hours, a few business plans and a couple of emptied bank accounts later Bull Run Distilling Company became a reality.

Seven Bridges Winery – Kevin Ross, CEO

Seven Bridges Winery is an urban winery in Portland Oregon founded in 2008. We make rich, big, Bordeaux-style reds from Washington State fruit. We started small, at just 350 cases, and have expanded production to approximately 1000 cases/year. Our focus is on making quality wine using traditional techniques. We self-distribute through our wine club, tasting room, and to a few local restaurants and wine shops.

Moderator:

Taplister – Kerry Finsand, Founder & CEO

While working for Citysearch, Kerry Finsand caught the start-up bug and left to try something new. Over a 3 year span he worked as a marketing consultant at a variety of start up companies in the technology and hospitality industries. These opportunities lead him into a position in sales and eventually the creation and testing of a Community Manager role with Groupon. Along the way, Kerry has combined his passion for craft beer, technology and marketing into various beer related projects including Taplister.com a resource to help craft beer fans find their favorite beers on tap or to discover new ones. Now his full time role is CEO of Taplister where Kerry is working on creating a marketing platform for the craft beer industry.

In his free time Kerry puts together beer events, blogs about beer and is a monthly regular on KXL's Beer O'Clock. When he is not working on Taplister you can find Kerry checking out some of the best craft beers in the world in Beervana aka Portland, Oregon.

OEN PubTalk™ - Back-to-School with Edupreneurs
Backspace

It’s back-to-school time! With high school graduation rates falling, student achievement lagging and new Common Core Standards on the way, K-12 education reform is a hot topic around the U.S. and in this election year.

What’s exciting is that a new generation of “edupreneur” entrepreneurs has emerged to disrupt education in innovative ways with new solutions that are transforming the way we learn, teach, communicate and share information. And some of them are right here in Oregon!

Join us this back-to-school season at our Sept. 12th, OEN PubTalk™ “Back-to-School with Edupreneurs” and learn how some of Oregon’s most innovative education startups, including EdCaliber, Membean and Sublime Learning, are changing the face of education. Bill Kelly, a veteran of the education startup world, will be our moderator.
