     As this was only my first meeting, I will have to withhold input until I have a chance to attend a few more and really understand the goals and objectives of this group and the target audience.

     It provides good understanding of the contents and process of building a good business plan. People that haven't yet written a business plan should consider this to get them started. Someone struggling with their business plan would also benefit.

     This is a perfect setting for entrepreneurs to meet other entrepreneurs and learn about topics concerning all startups. I especially like that the setting is small and the speakers are very accessible.

     A 'must-see' series if and when it repeats! I'm looking forward to seeing the "Your Blog - you built it, now how do you get those readers to show up?" in the archives. 

    Cary S. on Nov 11, 2008.

  • OTBC

     One of the best seminars I've been to in recent years. Speaker was able to articulate his ideas and send attendees out with a plan. 

    Ty S. on Mar 12, 2008.

  • OTBC

     This was an excellent cultural, social, and professional event. Fostering more collaboration and trade with Japan in the information technology sector would be very beneficial to Oregon. I believe there will be many positive ripples in our pond as a result of this event. 

    Brian S. on Feb 22, 2008.

  • OTBC

     My main reason for attending was to be surrounded by like-minded people and that seemed to be the case so I plan on continuing to attend these events. 

    Lance P. on Nov 28, 2007.

  • OTBC

     I find paying for multiple lunches extremely cumbersome. If I sign up for 2 people, I have to pay for each person individually. I I want to sign up for a series of lunches, I have to sign up for each individual lunch. Perhaps you have it set up so people can accomplish what I am trying to do, but your staff is not knowledgable about how to make this easier and less time consuming for people. Thanks! Helen

  • OTBC

     Useful, an automated email reminder about the meeting and location would be good. 

    Owen G. on Jul 13, 2007.
