Girls in Tech Speed Mentorships
Oregon Convention Center

A two-hour mentorship workshop for girls that starts with an overview of the speed mentoring process by Ivo Lukas, Chief Innovation Officer of Girls in Tech.

After the introduction, we'll start the Speed Mentoring Rounds. Each mentee will meet one-on-one with up to four Mentors for 15 minutes.

Bring the following:

Your elevator pitch
2-3 questions you would like help in answering
Business cards to give to each Mentor

The purpose of speed mentoring is to get feedback on your strengths and professional challenges from an industry expert - it's an efficient and effective way to learn, connect and network.

When you arrive, sign up for time slots so you can meet and learn from the Mentors. First come first served!

ABOUT GIT: The Girls in Tech MENTORSHIP Program was developed to provide integrated, engaging and educational high-touch workshops for young girls ages K-12, women in colleges/universities and working professionals. In an effort to encourage girls to enjoy, embrace and understand the importance of math, tech and science at a young age, we are building the curriculum which will enable girls to learn the basic skills, software programs and gain entrepreneurial exposure to become leaders within their communities, academia and in their future careers in the tech space.

To learn more about girls in tech mentorship please contact [email protected]

Mentorship Speed-Dating -- Business, Software Development, Visual Communications
souk

Are you looking for a mentor? Are you looking for someone to mentor? Here's your chance to find a match!

Much like speed dating, we'll set you up with eight different mentors in your field, and you'll get 15 minutes to share your ideas, questions, answers and advice with each one.

Unlike speed dating, there's no awkward Yes/No checkboxes to turn in at the end. Everyone gets everyone else's contact info, and nobody feels left out. Hopefully.

We're looking for eight mentors and eight mentees (a funny word for someone who needs a mentor), in these three categories:

  • Business (10am - Noon) This includes anything in the topic of Business: sales, marketing, operations, finance, legal and management.

  • Software Development (1 - 3pm) This can include coding, programming, web app development, back-end, front-end, and anything related to making software.

  • Visual Communications (4 - 6pm) All things visual: art, design, graphics, visualization, photography, whatever gets the message across.

IMPORTANT: We can only accept 8 mentors and 8 mentees in each of the three categories.

To RSVP, email [email protected] and tell us your name, what category you'll be in (Business, Software Development or Visual Communications), and whether you're a mentor or mentee.)

PIE turns 10 🎂and the whole Portland startup and tech community is invited
The Glass Lab

Hard to believe, but it's been a decade of experimentation around how established organizations — like corporations, government, and educational institutions — can better collaborate with the Portland startup community for mutual benefit.

That's right. PIE is turning 10 years old in August 2019. So it seemed like a good time for a party. And our generous sponsors Autodesk (https://autodesk.com/) and SKB (https://skbcos.com/) volunteered to help us make it happen.

Join PIE, PIE Shop, our alums, our mentors, and the entire Portland startup community to celebrate this milestone. As part of the celebration, we'll be happy to feed you and provide you with a beverage or two. And there will likely be some PIE giveaways, as well.

NOTE: This is a family friendly event, so feel free to bring the kids.
