Live from the Rose City and the Silicon Forest, covering Portland, Oregon, technology startups, and bloggers.

With the current political climate, more and more folks are seeking ways to get involved in politics. To help, a number of solutions are coming to the fore—or getting renewed attention—as they work to get folks connected to the resources they need. If you’re interested in running for office, you should che

Today, perhaps more than ever, social change and supporting one another are top of mind for all of us. And nowhere is that more evident than the startup community. Where we struggle with issues around diversity, inclusion, and harnessing the power of technology to make meaningful change in our communities. But to do that, w

So this is interesting. For all the positives of the Skyward acquisition today, it still had one issue that has been consistently part of our “liquidity event” stories: it was a solitary event. Portland doesn’t have multiple exits happening in rapid succession. We don’t get the opportunity to build m

Sure, sure. Everyone is talking about the Verizon acquisition of Yahoo! But honestly? I’m more interested in an acquisition that may fly below the RADAR. (Buh dum buh… tiss!) You see, Verizon just made an acquisition that both bodes well for Portland—and for our future in the drone industry. Verizon has acquir

In times like these, one of the most heartening things about helping run Portland Startup Week, every year, is the opportunity to see all of the amazing events that people want to host—and honestly, do host, week after week in town.

As much as I love all of the amazing educational and social opportunities that happen during Portland Startup Week, I also appreciate that folks have work to do. And need some time—and space—to get that work done. So it’s always nice to have local coworking spaces opening up their doors to the community

It’s almost time for another Portland Startup Week.

The timing is impeccable. Following one of the most poignant, moving, and momentous protests in US history, it seems perfect that a group of women from the Portland startup and investment communities is launching a new organization designed to help women founders in Oregon build amazing companies—and find the funding

What if you had access to an entire town with high speed fiber? What if it was a rural location that enabled you to work with technology and agriculture in ways that urban companies don’t often explore?

Ah Portland… The most snow in decades. Threats of freezing rain. And all of the weather hysteria you can stomach. But that’s not the only thing to be stressing about. Nope. You’ve got a startup. And you’re always looking for ways to get that startup in front of more people. So if you happen to

One of my favorite things about Portland Startup Week is that it gives our whole community the chance to revisit some of the amazing events that helped many of us get connected in the first place—even though some of those events have fallen by the wayside.

We hear it all of the time. About technology’s ability to connect. About it being a platform for expression. About how it can bridge distances.

It’s that time of year. In fact, it happens around this time, every year. As we ring in new year, we’re always drawn to look back at what we accomplished in the previous year and what we hope to accomplish in the forthcoming year.

People always say that once you’ve caught the startup bug, it’s hard to shake it. And I can’t think of any better example than Linda Weston. After 17 years of heading up the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network, she decided to “retire.” But as any founder knows, “retire” is just a euphemism

More often than not, startup stories fail to be tales of overnight success. Quite the contrary. Founders have any number of trials and tribulations, tests, and failures.

You’ve done your homework. You’ve thumbed through “How to Portland startup scene.” You scan Calagator on a regular basis. You attend any number of events. You pop into the Portland Startup Slack every now and again. And you’ve both asked and offered on Portland Startups Switchboard. But still.

It’s a common occurrence. You manage to make your way through another week at your current gig.

Many folks are lucky to get to work in awe inspiring environments. Here in Portland, there’s no shortage of amazing office spaces—and more are joining the fray every day.
