We are a Portland group that provides a relaxed networking and a structured support workshop as we look to get to know one another's businesses and explore how we may be able to help one another.
Our meetups consist of an open floor to snack and socialize for the first half an hour before we break into some small groups and run through some constructive problem solving exercises and get a chance to participate in some exciting discussions about the trials of running a business.
This group is intended for entrepreneurs and business owners looking to connect with other local businesses or just hoping to bounce their ideas off of others.
Whether you come by and join us for a few minutes or stay for the entire time, we're confident that everyone will be able to find some value here.
Please join us for this month's networking event and workshop presentation on creating a social ignition in the business world!
We just ask for $5 at the door or online to help cover basic costs (free for HatchLab members).
Together, we will explore topics and learn insights that will help our businesses thrive. We will begin with a speed networking exercise so that everyone can shake hands and get to know each other's businesses. Then we get to hear from a presenting speaker who will share their expertise. The group will ask questions, voice their challenges and participate in helpful discussions.
This month's focus will be on legal planning for entrepreneurs. Our speaker, Michael Jonas with Rational Unicorn Legal Services will be leading us through the basics of what entrepreneurs and small business owners should be equipped with for staying safe in the practicing of their business and how best to plan for continued growth. Michael is an attorney that has been a very active member in several Portland organizations and non-profits and works regularly with small business owners.
