In this global economy, the economic meltdown happening in the U.S. is also affecting economies around the world. China, Oregon’s largest export country in 2008, is being negatively affected. We often see bad news coming out of China, such as:

  • "China’s Slowdown Sends out Aftershocks”,
  • "Jobless Migrants Hit 20 Million as China’s Unemployment Rises”
  • "China’s Small Factories Struggle”, etc.

We have assembled a panel of seasoned business people and professionals who have been working and/or traveling in China to give us a closer look at what is really going on over there and share their insights with us. We will also learn about any implications to the Oregon economy due to the current situation in China. Please bring your questions and join us!

Congressman Earl Blumenauer: China, Global Warming, & Clean Energy
Port of Portland
      <p align="left"><strong>ABOUT THE PROGRAM:</strong><br />

The House of Representatives recently took historic action to rein in global warming pollution and jumpstart America's clean energy industries by passing the American Clean Energy and Security Act. This bill invests in energy that can’t ever spill or run out, will create millions of jobs at home and around the country, and protect our planet for future generations. At a time when Oregon is faced with record unemployment, this legislation will spur innovation and make an immediate difference in the electric, construction, and engineering sectors.

Earlier in June, Congressman Blumenauer spent seven days in China with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a bi-partisan delegation of colleagues from the House of Representatives on the need to address global warming. He will discuss the changes that China has made to adjust its policies to be more environmentally sensitive, and the realization that China and the world cannot afford to follow the path of the first industrial revolution.


Congressman Earl Blumenauer's academic training includes undergraduate and law degrees from Lewis and Clark College in Portland.

Elected to the US House of Representatives in 1996, Mr. Blumenauer has created a unique role as Congress' chief spokesperson for Livable Communities. From 1996 - 2003, he served on both the International Relations Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Now a member of the Ways and Means Committee and the Budget Committee, Congressman Blumenauer also serves as Vice Chair of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

TiE Oregon: Semiconductor Entrepreneurship - Opportunities & Challenges
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

What are the challenges facing semiconductor startups in today’s environment?

Is it enough to have developed a great technology?

Historically, semiconductor startups have had massive development costs & long development cycles. A fabless semiconductor has to typically raise > $50M with a development and time to volume cycle that lasts 3-4 years or more. Has this changed in the light of current advances in technology?

Founders of semiconductor startups often come from an engineering background. What business challenges do these founders face?

Our panel, constituted of Steve Sharp, Chairman Triquint & past CEO of Triquint Semiconductor, Howard Bubb, CEO Ambric & Manpreet Khaira, CEO Avnera will address these and other important issues related to the viability of the fabless semiconductor startups in the new millennium.

The panel will be moderated by Scott Keeney, CEO & Co-founder nLight, a manufacturer of semiconductor lasers
