REMINDER: Colorways kicks (ahem) off this week. Get started with Black Signal at Deadstock, Wednesday.

There’s so much sneaker culture in Portland, one sneaker focused week won’t do. That’s why there’s Colorways, a celebration of streetwear culture and the sneaker community, taking place July 4-7, 2019. And like every other Portland celebration, it takes place at a bunch of different spots around town.

Exploring the intersection of technology and bias in machine learning and artificial intelligence with Black Women in STEM

As technology becomes more and more human, it’s no secret that it runs the risk of taking on the flaws of humanity as well. Like unconscious bias. That’s why I love seeing conversations like the upcoming Black Women in STEM panel where they’re going to dig into the potential for bias in machine learning and artificial intelligence.

REMINDER: Looking forward to seeing you at the Portland startup community happy hour, this Thursday

I realize it’s only Tuesday. But you’re a startup founder. Or you work for a startup. Or you work. And it’s already been a long week. But you know what? There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. An oasis. A respite, if you will. Not only that, it’s also an opportunity to meet both more of your peers as well as some awesome folks from out of town. Ringing any bells? That’s right. There’s a Portland startup community happy hour on Thursday, June 27, 2019.

Some folks pursue startups for independence. This weekend, folks will be pursuing startups in Independence. Oregon.

When it comes to helping people get their ideas going, there are few weekends that compare to a Techstars Startup Weekend. Fifty four hours of sprinting from idea to product and pitch. It just goes to show how quickly something can come together. And that’s why I’m always happy to hear about new and different flavors of the event. Like Techstars Startup Weekend Small Town Advantage which takes place this weekend in Independence, Oregon.

Seattle visits Portland: Create33 and Founders’ Co-op are making a road trip

Okay. Maybe today isn’t the best day to be writing about Seattle and Portland. (Sorry, Flounders.) But earlier today, I had the opportunity to post about early stage Seattle fund Founders’ Co-op investing in Portland’s Brave Care. So it seemed to be the perfect time to do a “speaking of Founders’ Co-op…” sort of post.

Get an early glimpse of the next great Oregon invention at InventOR

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about Oregon culture, it’s that we’re often driven by curiosity. We like shiny objects. We’re early adopters. And we’re often inspired by folks pushing the envelope. That’s what makes InventOR such a great event for us.

Looking to catch the next rising Portland startup? Founders Live PDX may be your chance

One of my favorite things about Portland is that there are any number of amazing companies being built here. One of my least favorite things about Portland is how difficult it can be for these companies to gain awareness. Which is why things like Founders Live Portland are great platforms.

Craving caffeine coupled with compatriots? It’s time for another Coffee with Co-Founders

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times. Communities are not built on evening events, alone. Which is why I always love daytime events that make knowledge, people, and networks more accessible to folks who might not have the chance to attend events after work hours. Like Coffee with Co-Founders.
