Eventbrite - Social Entrepreneurs Meetup

Welcome to the Portland Metro community of social entrepreneurs. We invite all Entrepreneurs, Freelancers, Micro-Business Owners and Changemakers to join us for networking, support and creating social impact in the Portland Metro area.

  • Meet an amazing diversity of entrepreneurs.
  • Network in small groups.
  • Share your ideas and get feedback.
  • Bring something to offer.
  • Bring something to ask.

Simple but Powerful Networking

Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, we’ve got a networking event you’ll enjoy. Rather than trying to face a room full of strangers, we break into small groups and follow a fast-paced but effective process which allows everyone to get to know at least eight to ten attendees.

In your small group, you’ll get 5 minutes to share:

  • Your name and what you do.
  • Ask for something you need help with (contacts, answer a question, find resources, anything except solicit money).
  • Offer something you can help others with (everyone can do something).

After everyone has shared, we change tables. The process repeats 3 or 4 times so you get to meet multiple groups of intelligent, motivated people and get feedback on your idea.

Register now and reserve your spot!
