Grab that coffee! You’re chatting with The Oregonian, DFJ Frontier, Capybara, and Voyager at 9 AM
Following up on some of the themes from the successful chat about the Portland startup scene, Mike Rogoway at The Oregonian will be bringing a few folks from the venture capital community to the table.
Interested in chatting with them? I thought you might be. Just swing by the Silicon Forest blog at 9 AM Friday morning.
Who will be there?
Oregonian technology writer Mike Rogoway leads a discussion with venture capitalists David Cremin (DFJ Frontier), Eric Rosenfeld (Capybara Ventures) and Diane Fraiman (Voyager Capital) on the VC scene in Oregon.
Of course, I’m hoping you’ll be there, too.
That’s the good news.
Now, if you participated in the last chat, you encountered the chat system we’ll be using. Same thing. It’s not horrible, but it’s kind of wonky. And it could make conversations a little difficult to follow.
Keep typing as fast and you can. And try to keep up with the bursts of the stream. It will all be captured, so you can go back through it again. At a leisurely pace.
To be safe, just make sure you’re well caffeinated—or wide awake—going into it.
