[Editor’s note: The following is a guest post from Duane Benson of Screaming Circuits.]

Oregon has a long history with electronics hardware design, going back to the early days of Tektronix and Intel.

Coffee, cofounders, cold brew, and PIE

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: It’s lonely being a founder—or even the cofounder—of a startup. That’s why I’m always happy to see events and programs that bring founders together. So just imagine how psyched I am when a founder focused event collaborates with a founder focused program.
