6-7 pm: 16 Things That Indicate You're An Entrepreneur Who "Gets It"
How do investors and other seasoned professionals in the startup and business world evaluate you during and after a meeting? As a founder, mastering the qualities of an entrepreneur who "gets it" helps attract resources and connections, and makes the process of bootstrapping a new venture, a little bit easier.
Carolynn Duncan, director of Portland Ten, and Rob Wiltbank, partner at Buerk Dale Victor venture fund, and associate professor at the Atkinson Graduate School of Management at Willamette University, will present "16 Things That Indicate You're An Entrepreneur Who Gets It", both from the entrepreneur- and investor points of view.
7-8 pm: The Portland Ten Initiative
Come get an inside look at Portland Ten! Hear from our founders-- about their projects, what they've learned during their time in the program, and what's next as they work toward the goal of $1MM in revenue each, by October 2010.
Learn what's in the works for our second round of Portland Ten, beginning June 8, as well as community outreach projects on queue for the summer, designed to strengthen Portland's early stage founder, investment, and tech communities.

About Portland Ten
Portland Ten is a 12-week intensive bootcamp for tech founders. We also support local initiatives that strengthen the early stage and seed funding communities in Portland, Oregon.
We work with entrepreneurs to clarify and align their concept, and strengthen their ability to commercialize and manage a project at the $1MM or more level. We provide brutally honest 3rd party perspective and accountability both in peer and 1-on-1 mentoring settings.
Founders increase their ability to plan and execute milestones, and internalize and apply best practices from venture capital, bootstrapping, and project management methodologies.
