[UPDATED] Looking to connect in person IRL again? Coffee w/ Co-Founders could be it

It’s been a series of fits and starts with getting back together in person. But it’s starting to happen. So if you’re a founder who has been looking to get the chance to connect with others beyond the typical virtual call, Coffee w/ Co-Founders is here to help.

After a successful re-launch at Deadstock in May & Good Coffee in June we’re headed to the Soul District of Portland on Alberta North Williams street for our July event.

We’ll be at [Happy Cup] Holy Beanz Coffee, the only Black female owned sit down coffee shop in Portland, hosted by owner Shalimar Williams who knows firsthand how life can be difficult outside of prison.

Happy Cup hires Individuals with disabilities that want to thrive and be productive members of society. As a social enterprise, Happy Cup provides a pathway for individuals who have aged out of special education programming. Through sustainable employment opportunities, Happy Cup offers real life skill building with a level of cultural relevance that is sorely lacking in most employment programs for special needs adults. Their “People with Potential” have a hand in every aspect of their business. Bagging, labeling, weighing coffee, and developing the creative blend names are all part of a Happy Cupper’s daily duties. Their goal is to pair great coffee with a great cause.

The event takes place Tuesday, July 19, 2022, at 9:00AM at 2622 NE Alberta Street 3494 N Williams. It is free to attend.
