    Raising A Million Dollars In This Economy

    NedSpace

    Join us for an evening of education and interaction around the critical topic of "Raising A Million Dollars In This Economy". We are not talking about the status quo of feedback on writing a business plan, networking with everyone you can get a meeting with and then pitching all of the standard funds in town, but rather about how the vast majority of Oregon and Washington start ups actually get funded.

    We will have a panel of four local start up founders including: - Brent Hieggelke (CEO of Second Porch) - Ken Westin (CEO of ActiveTrak Inc.) - Kevin DeWhitt (Founder of Agilyx) and - John Friess (CEO of journey gym)

    These founders have each raised between $600K and $9M for their Oregon start ups in the past couple of years. They have raised these funds through their founding team, angel investors, angel funds and VCs. The whole gamut is covered here, but more importantly their candid feedback on what worked well and consistently will surprise you. All of them agree the secret is often something out of your control unless you can create it.

    So, if you are looking to better learn about how these four local start ups raised their funding, how long it took, who provided it, what were the terms, what worked well, what their valuations were, where they found their angels, what due diligence cycles were like, etc., then this event is for you.

    This event is open to the public and as always this event is free and dinner will be provided. We will start the event at 6:00pm with food and networking and then the educational portion will begin at 6:30pm.

      What Founders Say About Startup Workouts
    
      "The Start-up Workouts that the Portland Ten’s Carolynn Duncan has recently headed up have exposed me to thinking and practices that have been educational and inspiring.
      "They have been a fantastic compliment to the George Fox MBA program that I’m currently enrolled in.  The combination of the foundational information provided by this traditional institution and the entrepreneurial education I have received by taking part in these workouts has been a great pair in preparing me to succeed in business and in life."
    
      -Travis Spencer
    
      "I have found the PortlandTen workout sessions to be well worth the time and cost. Our company has benefitted directly from specific process models as well as input and idea exchange with other entrepreneurs"

    SAOpdx: Obama's Stimulus Plan - What You Need to Know (unconference)

    NedSpace

    Join the SAO for our first unconference!

    The time is short - we as a community have just a couple of weeks to get ideas to the Governor's office to include in stimulus-related grant activities. This is a unique time to compete for job-creating, infrastructure-developing, regional economy-changing investments...get involved!

    Come + learn about the initiative and then brainstorm as a community how to best leverage this one-time opportunity!

    Every American and certainly every business person should look at the way this plan will roll out. We will be highlighting Healthcare IT (page 42-43) and Energy Efficiency / Renewable Energy (page 17 and 20) as two of the better opportunities for the tech community. Come with your ideas and your computer - we will be posting the ideas generated at this meeting to our Wiki so we can help put them into the appropriate format and vet them through the correct channels.

    Click to download Oregon's ARRA Guide: https://db.sao.org/calendar2/event_description.htm?eventID=3/24/09

    Event Moderators: Harvey Mathews, President, Software Association of Oregon Rich Bader, CEO, EasyStreet Bill Hersh, Chair Medical Informatics, OHSU

    Agenda:

    Walk through the linked Stimulus Guide document, highlighting the areas we think are most applicable for tech companies (20-30 minutes)

    Share the appropriate contacts at the Governor's created group called the Oregon Way and that group's focus so people know how to structure their proposals and who to send it to (5-10 minutes)

    Lead a brainstorm of the grant proposals (45-60 minutes)

    Startup Now: What Would Your Startup Do With $250,000 in 2009?

    NedSpace

    Join Oregon's entrepreneurs Thursday evening March 19th at 5:00 PM at NedSpace (920 SW Third, between Taylor and Salmon) to explore and answer the question "What Would Your Startup Do With $250,000 in 2009?"

    In the last 6 months the economy, access to capital, the cost of talent and the opportunities for innovation have all changed. We think it’s time for the relationship between entrepreneurs and the State of Oregon to change, too (the state needs jobs & entrepreneurs need capital!).

    Hear stories of successful, local homegrown companies that have either bootstrapped or raised funds and then grown themselves to success.

    Most importantly, though, the goal of this event is to prove to the State of Oregon that there are enough jobs, compelling ideas and entrepreneurs to warrant an immediate investment of $100,000,000 for start ups that want to hire local talent.

    We are working to raise a $100M fund that makes small investments in Oregon-based companies who hire Oregon-based employees. Now, in 2009. Not next year or some point in the future. In growing these new startups, we are investing in innovation, creating jobs and building Oregon’s brand with innovators and entrepreneurs.

    Please be prepared to answer the following questions:

    • Could your company hire $250,000 worth of Oregon-based talent in 2009 to get it to the next level?
    • What could your company achieve during 2009 with a $250,000 investment?
    • How many new jobs would be created if 400 new Oregon startups were funded?
    • How would you like to see $100,000,000 invested in Oregon startups?

    Brought to you in part by NedSpace, Oregon Entrepreneurs Network, Reference Capital, Software Association of Oregon and Starve Ups.

    NedSpace is proud to host an Oregon entrepreneurial startup event during this unparalleled time of economic chaos.disruption. Be a part of this unparalleled movement!
