PDX Women Founders Forum
New Relic


Hi All - Excited to announce our first event of 2015. Our sponsor and host is New Relic. See you on the 29th floor of the "big pink"!

Topic is: "Recruiting Challenges in Todays World for Startup Founders", with the awesome Susan Robinson. Can't wait to see you all!

The Speaker: When Susan was working on her Bachelor of Engineering and MBA, she had no idea she would one day run her own company. She started her career as a Software Developer for a local software development company, before moving up to a Project Manager which was her first experience in hiring talent. She left the corporate world to become a consultant for a Professional Services organization for several years where she implemented ERP systems. Prior to Y2K when there was a shortage of local talent to provide software remediation, she moved into technology staffing. In those 15 years sha has experienced the highs and lows in hiring technology talent from Y2K, .com bubble and burst, the Great Recession and everything in between. because she loves what she does, in November of 2013 sha started Tech Talent Link where she focuses on assisting companies find technology talent either on direct hire or temporary basis.

Portland Startup Week: Portland Seed Fund Pitch for a Beer
McMenamins Ringlers Pub

You have a big idea, maybe even a co-founder. But you'd like a second opinion before you sever all ties to paid employment, loved ones and regular meals. Time to Pitch for a Beer and get frank and fast feedback from Portland Seed Fund managers!

How it works: First 50 to arrive get in free with an elevator pitch to the bouncer. Those who want to pitch PSF simply drop their names in a hat. 12 names will be drawn for 5-min power sessions with PSF managers Jim Huston, Angela Jackson and Jenn Lynch. Ringler booths will be filled with other PSF alumni and mentors, so you will garner additional feedback from great sources even if your name didn't get drawn. Everyone gets a beer ticket (and pizza).

No RSVP required. Doors will be closed after first 50 in.
