Any number of you have had the misfortune of being stuck in a room, listening to me babble about my opinions on the Portland startup community. It happens. And yes, you feel uncomfortable getting up and walking out. I get it. But for whatever reason, I still get invited to talk about Portland startup stuff on a regular basis.

Looking for interesting conversations with Portland personalities? Look no further than Output PDX

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: Portland is filled with tons of interesting people.

A whole new crop of startups join the Portland startup scene with Oregon Story Board Demo Day

Fine. I’ll admit it. I love demo days. If only because I know how much awful turmoil, stress, and ad nauseam pitch practice go into the effort. And all of those hours and days and weeks of effort culminate in a few brief moments of glory on stage—where amazing founders get the chance to reveal their startups to the world. It really is amazing. So forgive me, if I spend a few minutes highlighting the startups that took the stage for Story Board Demo Day. Read More

Portland startup Treehouse makes the case for the 32 hour work week

So many folks in the startup scene—Portland or otherwise—are locked into a mindset that the more you work the greater your chance of your success. That the hours you plow into work on any given work translate directly into the success of your company. Well, I hate to burst your bubble.
