That escalated quickly: Join the free Portland community job fair on June 1 at the Falcon Building

The Portland startup community—and honestly the Portland community at large—never ceases to amaze me. A few weeks ago, I posted a quickly penned request for the community to consider rallying support for those nearly 800 local folks affected by the Intel layoffs. I expected that a handful of us might be able to throw something useful together. Suffice it to say that I never expected we’d be where we are today. With nearly 200 companies supporting this effort and a free job fair planned for June 1, 2016. Read More

With Cloudability, Bill Lynch continues to serve as a bellwether of Portland's potential

There was some huge news today for the Portland startup scene. But it might not be perceived as such. Because, on the surface, it’s simply an executive hire. A pretty impressive executive hire. But a hire. You might not have even caught it. But Portland startup Cloudability announced that they had hired Bill Lynch, cofounder of Jive Software, as the vice president of products. Read More

Two of the five most well funded social software startups are Portland companies says Jeremiah Owyang

Now, I know as well as anyone that Portlanders have overly aggressive humility. And that folks are unwilling to toot their own horns. But when independent research shines a spotlight on what’s happening here, that’s worth embracing. Such was the case today with Jeremiah Owyang. Read More

Sequoia Capital: Apple, Oracle, Cisco… and Jive Software

Unlike the late 90s, these days, when someone launches a new Web site, it’s not generally news. But when that someone is Sequoia Capital—one of the most successful venture capital firms in the Valley—people take notice. Read More

Jive gets Cloudy. Or the Cloud gets Jivey. Either way, Jive is now available as Software as a Service (SaaS)

Enterprise software is a huge business. But the world of installed software and corporate server farms dwindles every day. Today, it’s dwindling even more.

Following in the footsteps of juggernauts like Salesforce.com, Jive Software has made the decision to move their service to the Cloud. Read More

Is it getting gamey in here? Jive partners with Bunchball to launch Jive Gamification

Jive has always been on the forefront of taking consumer focused tools and turning them inward to benefit large corporations. They took the dynamic of social dynamic Twitter and Facebook and made them a means of improving communication inside organizations. Read More

Teacher says every time a company IPOs an angel gets its wings. But sometimes it takes six months.

One of the things about which I tend to carp isn’t a lack of capital in the Portland startup scene. It’s an issue of maturity of the Portland startup scene. Because we simply haven’t had a bunch of serial entrepreneurs with successful exits plowing money back into the next generation of startups. Read More

CONFIRMED: Jive Software IPO at $12 per share, slated for Tuesday, December 13

There have been a ton of rumors swirling about Jive Software, as of late. But it looks like one of those may have more merit than the others. And given that I’ve seen it any number of places and that our friends at Jive are in the midst of a quiet period, I’m going to share this one.

According to All Things D’s sources, Jive will have its initial public offering on Tuesday, December 13. Read More

Jive talkin’: Tony Zingale, CEO of Jive Software, sits down with CNBC

I’ll be honest. I can’t have a conversation about startups in Portland without a mention of Jive Software. And come down where you will on the religious argument of the location of their headquarters (I could give you my opinion, but that’s another post for another time), they’re still a very big player here in the Portland scene.
