    founder.coffee @ The Stacks Coffeehouse
    free

    For the next founder.coffee we're on the north side of town! This cool spot features an incredible library of books for you to read while you are sipping on your favorite caffeinated drink. Owners Nathan and Mary have lived in the neighborhood since 2003, and wanted to create a space where their neighbors could gather together over cups of delicious coffee, great snacks, and beautiful books. Mary was inspired by the library stacks at The University of Texas, where her mother worked, and by the breakfast tacos of her hometown of Austin. Most of the books in The Stacks Community Library were donated by friends and neighbors, and book donations are always accepted!

    They also have a wonderful outside area and if the weather is nice, that's where we'll meet!

    As always, be there thinking about ways you can help your fellow founders. No selling, no solicitations, just good conversations!

    See you there! Josh & Mark

    About founder.coffee: As a business owner, you are faced with many challenges. You're forced to make decisions every day that could make or break your business. founder.coffee is a way to network with other entrepreneurs to allow free-flowing information with the intent to collaborate and help each other. So often we're challenged and there's very little we can do to express our challenges with the people we work with or the people we care about. Think of founder.coffee as your own personal support group for business owners. We're all here to help!

    Demolicious - April 2024
    free

    UPDATE: April Demolicious will be at the new westside UpStart Collective location!

    :::::::Applications for April are CLOSED! Please use the form below to apply to pitch in May:::::::::::

    Demolicious is back! This monthly pitch event brings together founders and the community to learn about what is being built here and around Portland.

    How this all works: If you are a founder, you will apply to pitch here. Don't worry. "Apply" simply means you want to pitch, but there's no real competitive process to be accepted. We just want to see what you're working on before we put you in front of a room full of people.

    You will be given 3 minutes to pitch at the event.

    The audience will be given a number to text and vote for their favorite one. The one with the most votes will go home with the Demolicious Championship belt.

    The belt is not for you to keep as you will have to come back and "defend" it. However, you will be allowed to put your startup sticker (if applicable) on the belt for all to see and to live on forever in infamy!

    We will post the projects/companies that will be pitching a week prior to the event. Which means you have until then to fill out the form.

    Teams Pitching: Ecobadlandz (defending champ) Social Director Talent Llama Perfect Memory AI Fanwagn Flow Wingman Green Canary Software

    Will you be the next founder to pitch!?!

    Lucky Lab Brew Pub

    RainSec is an informal group of like-minded security professionals who meet to network and discuss topics of interest in a non-work, non-vendor setting.

    While our target audience is experienced information security professionals, this is a public event open to any interested parties. If you have a friend or colleague who might benefit, please pass an invite along.

    Follow @PDXRainSec on Twitter for last minute updates.

    Because COVID-19 still presents significant risk to some members of our community, we ask that you observe the following and make your own risk assessment decision regarding your attendance:

    • If outdoor seating is available and weather permits, we will be outside.
    • If you are feeling sick, stay home!
    • If you've had a recent COVID exposure, stay home!
    • If you are not vaccinated, stay home!
    • If you are otherwise considered high risk for COVID, please stay home until you feel it is safe to gather in large groups (20-40 people). We don't want to be the cause of anyone's illness or death.

    You can also find us on Meetup.com and Google Groups.
