    PDXWIT is excited to announce the launch of Project Presentations Event. Collaboration, support, and the ability to clearly communicate about your project are critical factors for success. The brainchild of Nathan Keene and Abeer Eltanawy, this event is designed to:

    Introduce new ideas within our community Find solutions to project challenges Encourage networking and collaboration Improve presentation skills Create access to mentors Provide a safe space to learn and grow Help you accelerate your project

    Who is it for?

    Members with a coding, hacking or maker project seeking a supportive audience to provide potential solutions to challenges, constructive questions and feedback. Please apply!.

    Members with a pet project on the back burner (or the front one!) who would like to present, discuss and gain traction? Come on out and share it!

    Folks interested in hearing about innovative projects and providing helpful audience feedback. Join us!

    How does it work?

    Here’s the scoop: The event starts with 15 minutes of networking. We will also encourage you to reconvene informally at the end. 3 projects will be selected for presentation.

    Each project presenter has a total of 20 minutes for their project (10 minutes to present, 10 minutes for brainstorming challenge solutions and receiving feedback). Presentations will be timed.

    Presenters have the option of a free one hour presentation coaching session with Tambre Leighn, a certified high performance coach who specializes in training experts in the medical, research, and technology sectors to present powerfully and with ease.

    How do I apply to present?

    Register for the event by selecting the “Presenter” ticket type by February 12th, 2018. We will notify selected presenters by email on February 16th, 2018.

    What if I want to attend but not present?

    Register for the event by selecting the “General Admission” ticket type.

    Event FAQ:

    Q: What is the parking situation?

    A: No onsite parking, there is a Star Park behind the office and parking is $2/hr.

    Q: Is there secured bike parking?

    A: There is an indoor bike rack that can be used.

    Q: Should I consider using public transportation?

    A: Finding parking near the office is not difficult, but it is not free - we recommend attendees use public transportation if that is what’s best for them.

    Purpose:

    PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.

    Our events are inclusive. All people who support our purpose are welcome.
