Portland Startup Weekend is pleased to announce the addition of our latest media sponsor RolodexPDX for PDXSW April 2013 and to share the details of RolodexPDX upcoming event.
RolodexPDX, a people incubator disguised as a networking event, has roots in Portland Startup Weekend. Founder Stephanie Austin attended a Startup Weekend in late 2012 and used the model of lean iteration to grow RolodexPDX from a small group of people meeting in the back room of a local jazz club on March 13, 2013 into the successful event that it is today.
RolodexPDX’s events are effective, catalytic, and enjoyable. The formula is simple: Three short and engaging talks giving by great speakers who share their wisdom with the crowd of entrepreneurs, makers, techies, business folks, investors, coaches, and go-getters. After that, the group splits into smaller circles for a quick master mind session geared at authentic connection. Then the crowd rejoins for Networking 2.0. What makes this event a success is its foundation in the startup world and the caliber of attendees.
RolodexPDX’s next event is their one year celebration (Happy Birthday, RolodexPDX!) and will feature speakers Shashi Jain, Jeff Martens and Special Guest Speaker Marco Salazar de Leon. Shashi and Jeff, with their years of experience with entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial ventures, will share inside stories, advice about cautionary tales aimed at empowering, educating and inspiring attendees. Marco, who is flying all the way up from San Diego to celebrate with us, is an expert in community management and online engagement. He will share tips, key concepts and implementable take-aways about leveraging your existing network and how to build an essential team and tribe around you and your projects. Plus, it’s a birthday celebration… so there will be cake!
