Dearest startup communities, You’re succeeding despite your best efforts to fail and burning out your biggest fans

There’s a great concept in the book Startup Communities about how folks have to have a long view on building communities. It’s work that takes decades. And that decade starts again every single day.

Rumor: Could an Oregon Unicorn be planning an IPO…?

If this rumor proves true, the next IPO in Oregon probably won’t be what you think. It’s not a Portland company. And it’s not a tech company. It’s Grants Pass, Oregon, headquartered Dutch Bros. And, if they follow through, it’s rumored to value the company at $3 billion.

And nonprofit Built Oregon would like to help quantify it. So that officials at local and state government have a better understanding of the actual numbers of companies impacted.

Building a consumer product startup? Built Oregon wants to help. But you have to apply.

Being a founder is hard. Really hard. And lonely. And nowhere have I seen that more evident than consumer product startups. With tech startups, at least we’re online most of the day. On email.
