    Female Founders Alliance: Ready Set Raise Program

    All - The FFA Ready Set Raise program is coming to on one of it's stops across America this summer. The event is tentatively on 8/10, location and all good things TBD. Watch this for updates and email me if you have questions. Kristine Campbell, FFA member in Oregon [email protected]

    Every founder knows raising capital is hard. And given that only 2% of venture capital is invested in female founded companies, what is already a moonshot for men is exponentially harder for women. You’re routinely and consistently underestimated, dismissed, ignored, ghosted, and judged by impossible standards - and that’s if you get in the door to begin with. Welcome to fundraising while female.

    Last year, FFA member Laura Malcolm (Founder/CEO of Give InKind) posted an idea to our online forum: she suggested that we join forces and help each other pitch to investors. That's why a few of us got together and organized our own version of a Demo Day. The result was last year’s Founders Showcase.

    Fast forward a year. Today, FFA has 4x more members, a growing team, a much bigger and more influential network of investors, and the help of world class sponsors like Davis Wright Tremaine’s Project W.

    So as we thought about reprising the event that put us on the map, we asked ourselves: what would a fundraising program look like if it was designed for female founders, by female founders?

    Our answer is called Ready. Set. Raise.™ We can't wait to tell you all about it. For now, please save the date for Demo Day on September 27th.

    CHIFOO Event: Breaking The Veil Of Research


    CHIFOO presents "What Happens When You Break The Veil Of Research?" with Nancy Frishberg, Senior UX Researcher & Coach!

    In design education, there is no ethical code that all agree on. What about computer science or any of the other disciplines we may have been trained in? The discussions of ethics and the real-life experiences that followed have informed my understanding of universal access and ethical responsibilities of design. I'll challenge myself to make the connections between these two endeavors (interpreting and design research or human-computer interaction) clear for all.

    About the Speaker Nancy Frishberg (@nancyf) has had several careers. The one most familiar to CHIFOO audiences is her work in qualitative research with humans, usually about improving products and services that people use and pay for and the processes that get them to those interactions and purchases. She has worked in tech companies, financial services institutions, and as a consultant to both for-profit and non-profit organizations.

    CHIFOO Event: How to Fight Fascism


    CHIFOO presents "How to Fight Fascism" with Mike Monteiro, Mule Design!

    All design is political, because all politics are designed. The world is a mess because a certain set of people designed it to be a mess. Now we need a different set of people to design our way out of it. This is not a choice. Regardless of whether this is what we wanted or not fascism is knocking on our front door. This is how we knock back.

    About the Speaker Mike Monteiro (@monteiro) is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design. He prefers elegant, simple sites with clear language that serve a real need. He prefers that designers have strong spines. Mike writes and speaks frequently about the craft and business of design.

    CHIFOO presents "Wasted Time Isn’t Time Wasted: Ensuring An Ethical Process" with Corey Pressman, Fiction!

    We are at an important juncture in our technologic and social evolution requires focus and acumen and something else: poetry, imagination, and daydreaming.

    This talk presents a way for us - the makers and thinkers of the science fiction present - to organize our activities so as to include healthy portions of the arts & humanities, experimentation, and daydreaming. Creating and maintaining a healthy dream/work balance will ensure that our emerging machine environments are centered on us, and not us on them.

    Portland Tech Solidarity Meeting


    The goal of this meetup is to get interested people from the tech world together with Portland community organizations to discuss practical steps we can take in the face of a Trump administration, while there is still ample time to prepare and plan.

    We'll operate on the assumption that Trump means what he says, and that he will work to implement the policies he campaigned on, including mass deportations, "extreme vetting" of immigrants and visitors, and a registry of Muslim Americans.

    Together I hope we can find ways to minimize the impact of these policies in and around Portland, help people defend their rights (and fight back), and lobby the companies we work to stop collecting and storing sensitive data wherever possible.
