    TiE Oregon Pitch Club featuring Nitin Rai on Startup Cash Flow

    TiE Pearl Incubator

    TiE Pitch Club is back for 2015!

    Join us for a talk by Nitin Rai about Cash Flow for your startup. How can you ensure that your available capital lasts you while building up your business and your revenues, and maybe in anticipation of outside funding; and what to do once you land that outside investment?

    Nitin Rai, president of TiE Oregon is a successful entrepreneur and active angel investor.

    After the talk from our speaker, we will continue with pitches by you! Any entrepreneur is invited to get up and present their pitch to the assembled group. This can be any type of pitch: an elevator pitch, a business concept pitch, a co-founder pitch, a sales pitch or an investor pitch. We will help you with timing you, being your chosen audience, and giving you feedback and input on your pitch, business and ideas. Just like many before you, you will come away with a lot of valuable and actionable feedback! People who do not want to pitch but are interested in finding out what Pitch Club is about, hearing new startup ideas, networking, and/or helping others are of course welcome!

    TiE Members: FREE (members can also pre-register a non-member guest for $10) Public: $25

    TiE Pearl Pitch Club; featuring Colin O'Neill: "Slides That Don't Suck"

    TiE Pearl Incubator

    You've worked hard on the structure of your pitch. You've practiced your delivery. But somehow your story is just not engaging people.

    Could be it because your slide deck, ... well, kinda sucks?

    You are not alone! A lot of entrepreneurs find it hard to resist putting too much information on their slides.

    Design is more important than ever - and it's not limited to your product or your website. The last thing you want, is for your slide deck to be a hindrance instead of a help, in conveying your story in an engaging manner

    Are you sure that your slide deck supports and reinforces your message? How about some insights from a consummate user experience and marketing expert?

    Come and join us at TiE Pearl Pitch Club, this time featuring a presentation by Colin O'Neill of ISITE Design: "Slides That Don't Suck". As Vice President of User Experience, Colin is not only an impressive creative talent; he is also a passionate and deeply experienced marketer with a long career, working with customers like IBM, Kodak, Charles Schwab, LinkedIn and Adobe, who knows how to engage and connect.

    So, bring your pitches (and your slides)!

    We will start the evening with an opportunity to network while enjoying refreshments. Then we will listen to Colin's presentation, after which you can practice your pitches, with (or without) slide decks, to get actionable and valuable feedback from Colin, peers, TiE mentors and other attendees.

    Don't miss this - your slide deck, and your pitch, will be all the better for it!

    TiE Members: FREE Public: $25

    Topics covered include: demystifying sales, breaking sales into manageable steps, leveraging your emotions, doing sales if you are an introvert, and much more. Everyone is sure to get some useful take-aways!

    Then join us to practice your pitch in a supportive environment and get constructive feedback.
    Our unique event format allows you to practice your sales pitch, your VC pitch, your elevator pitch or your pitch to find a co-founder for your startup business or -idea.

    You can bring a laptop to plug into the A/V system or pitch without a presentation.

    TiE Panel: IP & Protecting Your Competitive Advantage + An Introduction To ONAMI

    TiE Pearl Incubator
    Intellectual Property Protection - Why and How?
    TiE Panel: IP & Protecting Your Competitive Advantage
    Thursday April 17th, 6:00pm-8:30pm 

    How to best protect the competitive advantage of your business? 
    If your leg-up on the competition depends on your specific invention or innovation, should you patent? Claim copyright? Trademark? How, if at all, is that different for different types of products, for instance software versus hardware products? 
    And why should you care?
     
    Here are some people you can ask. 
     
    Leigh Gill is an attorney for Immix Law Group, as well as a TiE Charter Member. 
    His legal expertise and specific interests include intellectual property protection, and he brings real world experience from having worked as an account manager, business analyst, project manager and consultant in technology businesses.
     
    Craig Evans is CEO and Founder of ESS (Energy Storage Solutions), a company focusing on products for clean and reliable energy. The energy sector is full of opportunity and competition for the next great solution to our planet's growing energy needs. With a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Craig has authored over 15 patents and patent applications.
     
    Jim Huston is Managing Director of Portland Seed Fund and a TiE Charter Member. As a past Director of Intellectual Property at Intel Capital, as well as having taught at Lewis and Clark Law School and University of Portland Center for Entrepreneurship on areas where law, business and technology intersect, he has great experience -and some opinions- on these topics. 
      
    We'll be discussing intellectual property, patents, legal issues and more, at our 
    TiE Panel Discussion: IP & Protecting Your Competitive Advantage on Thursday, April 17th, 6:00pm-8:30pm

    Our Moderator for the evening's discussion, Brent Bullock, is a partner at Perkins Coie LLP, and widely recognized as a leader in corporate and securities law. 

    Networking mixer
    Come enjoy a networking mixer prior to the discussion and speaker presentation, courtesy of event sponsors Perkins Coie LLP.

    Introduction to ONAMI
    As if the above panel discussion wasn't enough, we will be featuring a speaker from ONAMI, Oregon's first Signature Research Center, to introduce the organization and its activities. You may for instance not know that, among other things, ONAMI provides gap funding to entrepreneurs, to accelerate research and commercialization of materials science and related device- and system technologies.


    This promises to be an evening jam-packed with useful information, insights and networking. 
    Hurry and save your seat!

    TiE Panel: Founders' Funding Stories

    TiE Pearl Incubator

    We often see headlines like these:

    • "Verizon Investments Leads Funding Round in MobileRQ"
    • "OpenSesame Lands $8M"
    • "OnTheGo Raises 700K Seed Funding from Foundry Group's AngelList Syndicate"
    • "AppThwack gets backing from In-Q-Tel"

    If you are an entrepreneur pitching at pitch competitions and to groups of investors, an outcome like that can often seem like a pipe dream. You might think it's just a question of luck, or that you just have to have a lot of passion for your idea; but it takes the right combination of factors to make such deals happen.

    The basic premise is obvious: investors want a return on their investment. But how do you get introduced to the right investor for your company? What is going to convince them that they will get a return on the investment? How do you negotiate the deal?

    One great way to get answers to some of these questions is by hearing the stories of founders who have received funding in the last 6 months.

    Join us for a panel discussion on closing a round of funding with the founders of the very same companies that featured in the headlines above! Don't miss this opportunity to learn from these entrepreneurs' experience and meet and ask them your questions!

    Our panelists are

    • Tyler McKinley (CEO/Founder of MobileRQ,
    • Josh Blank (SVP/Founder of OpenSesame),
    • Ryan Fink (CEO/Founder of OnTheGo Platforms),
    • Trent Peterson (Co-Founder of AppThwack)

    The discussion will be moderated by Monica Enand (Founder/CEO of Zapproved, TiE Charter Member).
