    Coffee w/ Co-Founders - Early Stage Fundraising Panel

    Custom House/WeWork

    Fundraising for your early stage startup is difficult. It's made even more difficult with the recent trend of smaller pre-revenue funding in the region. This month we will sit down with some area panelist to discuss funding trends, funding alternatives, and what can be done to get early stage companies better access to capital that can help take their companies to the next level.

    This will be a "leave your feelings at the door" conversation. We will touch on what is really to blame for the lack of early stage funding access. Whether that means looking at local and regional funding resources that seemed to have dried up, to whether founders have companies that are investible.

    Panelists: Josh Carter - Manager, WeWork Labs (Moderator) Nicole Schmidt - CEO/Co-Founder @ krowdsourced Geoff Harris - Partner @ Flying Fish VC Ross Barbieri - Angel Investor/EiR @ Portland State's Business Accelerator

    Job Application Secrets: Nine Common Mistakes Candidates Make

    A hiring manager at any given tech company in Portland receives hundreds of applications for an open position in Sales, Marketing, Operations, or Administration. More than half of the received applications are discarded immediately, or soon after, due to simple (and preventable!) mistakes that applicants routinely make. During this presentation we’ll cover the 9 most common mistakes applicants make on their cover letters, resumes, email responses, phone screens, and in-person interviews that disqualify them from the applicant pool. A successful job application means successfully marketing and selling yourself to the company—and in this presentation marketer Carly J. Cais shows you how to jump through each job application hoop successfully. Getting a job is ultimately 10% luck and 90% meeting the company’s criteria, but coming to this presentation will help you ace that 90%. You can get in the room with the decision-makers...and ultimately get HIRED.
