    SMC Portland #PDXchat: Using Digital to Think Outside The Bank

    Mercy Corps

    Join us for the next #PDXchat on November 13th "Thinking outside the bank: Using digital to take on a trillion dollar industry” Presented by SMC PDX and Simple

    Where: Mercy Corps Event Center 45 SW Ankeny St, Portland, OR 6-8 PM Refreshments and light snacks served 90 seats available

    Cost: FREE (registration required)

    Join us for a fascinating case study of how Simple, a Portland-based startup, is taking on the trillion dollar banking industry in a very untraditional way – digitally, without ANY physical locations. Presenting for Simple will be: Rachel Giuliani, Community Manager (@Simplify) Scott Edwards, Marketing Manager (@scottedwards) Moderator: Terry St. Marie (@starbucker), President of SMC PDX

    Questions We’ll Address: Background- What is Simple? What does a “digital institution” look and feel like, using the example of a bank? How can social media work as a digital disruptor? While it’s still all about relationships and expectations, is the customer still always right in this new digital world? How can this case study benefit YOU?

    After the presentation, Terry will ask some follow-up questions, and then he’ll engage the audience for a wrap-up Q & A with Rachel & Scott. Come for this free event and learn how to apply these innovative practices in your own business, agency or consultancy. And yes, there will be time for some great networking too!

  • OEN's Entrepreneurial Summit: The Entrepreneurs Journey

    Mercy Corps

    From tech to food and onto science, our region's entrepreneurs are developing ideas and companies that are making a difference from both an economic development standpoint and the betterment of the society we live in. The journey from an idea or concept to actually getting your company up and running is never an easy one. It's one that is filled with ups and downs, victories and defeats, but the one thing that all of these entrepreneurs share is a passion for what they are trying to build or create.

    OEN's Entrepreneurial Summit is your opportunity to discover and learn about the incredible collection of entrepreneurs, across all industries that are making things happen in Oregon.These entrepreneurs all have a passion and belief in what they have built, but their journeys will both inspire and spark ideas within you. D'Wayne Edwards with Pensole Shoe Design Academy, Anna Martens with FreeRangePDX/Leatherman and Mat Ellis with Cloudability are just a few of the great speakers that are lined up for the event.

    As many of these entrepreneurs will attest, they couldn't have done it on their own. To that end, after the talks have completed, OEN is hosting an"Entrepreneurs Journey" trade show. The trade show will include the organizations, accelerators, universities and government resources that provide the support, mentorship and potential funding for entrepreneurs.
