Founded in Seattle by our fellow Bizniker, Dominic Canterbury, Dibspace is now being offered to the Portland community and we are helping to build the resource here. In July, the Seattle based network group hit $100,000 in trade value ~ so it goes to show it is a viable community which offers its members incredible trading power.
Perhaps you are asking yourself, what exactly is Dibspace?
It is a network of local businesses trading goods and services using a community currency instead of cash. Dibspace....puts idle resources to work, recession-proofs your business, helps grow your business while saving cash, gives you access to a large pool of potential clients and costs nothing: It's simple, easy and completely free!
What's more? Sign up your business now and receive a hefty bribe worth $100 (Dibits are awarded to your account upon completing your online profile.) And then post an offer and let the trading begin!
Still not sure? Then come to the Happy Hour and we'll be thrilled to explain more.
Recession be Damned! Through trade, indie businesses can thrive.
This happy hour will be all about networking with the intent to barter so come prepared with ideas about what you'd be willing to trade to get yourself working at full capacity; and don't forget your business cards. Networking time is scheduled for before and after the presentation part of the event.
This barter blowout bash will be held at Urban Grind Coffee House and the owner Kevin Crawford graciously agreed to sponsor us. We will provide food and beverages and are also asking for additional sponsors.
