Athletic and outdoor apparel, footwear, and accessory startups abound in Portland, Oregon. You can't throw a pumpkin spiced latte or some freshly made kale chips in downtown Portland without hitting a founder of one of these companies for crying out loud.
You're invited to a startup athletic outdoor founder gathering brought to you by Clavis (co-founder Arild Dietrichson)
Come and meet some of the freshest, newest, apparel, footwear and accessory startup founders Portland has to offer. These startup founders will be showing off their stuff and answering your questions about why and how they did what they did. There will be founders, fans, investors, buyers, boutique owners and more.
The event is Friday October 18th, 3-5pm at NedSpace 1400 SW 5th Avenue, third floor (between Columbia & Clay)
This two hour open house will be a blast, we'd love you to join us.
We held a similar event for food startup founders and over 250 people showed up (see http://www.meetup.com/Startup-Your-Startup/events/126959742/)
