    RolodexPDX Turns One: Celebrate Entrepreneurial Networking

    Moxie Studio

    RolodexPDX’s next event will feature speakers Shashi Jain, Jeff Martens and Special Guest Speaker Marco Salazar de Leon.

    Shashi and Jeff, with their years of experience with entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial ventures, will share inside stories, advice about cautionary tales aimed at empowering, educating and inspiring attendees.

    Marco, who is flying all the way up from San Diego to celebrate with us, is an expert in community management and online engagement. He will share tips, key concepts and implementable take-aways about leveraging your existing network and how to build an essential team and tribe around you and your projects.

    Plus, it’s a birthday celebration… so there will be cake!

    The overall formula is simple: Three short and engaging talks giving by speakers who share their wisdom with the crowd of entrepreneurs, makers, techies, business folks, investors, coaches, and go-getters. After that, the group splits into smaller circles for a quick master mind session geared at authentic connection. Then the crowd rejoins for munching on food and great networking that is actually effective and fun.
