WHY PORTLAND?

Just as venture backed startups have their hubs and ecosystems around SF, NYC, LA, and Boston…bootstrappers need hubs catering to our unique needs.

We love that Portland’s Mantra is “Keep Portland Weird”, and admire their fanatic support for their local businesses. Their community passion has helped many of their local brands transcend their city to become formidable national brands. This spirit of Portland resounds well with bootstrap entrepreneurs, and we secretly hope Portland will become a hub for bootstrap startups.

Location

Also, Portland is just a fun town oozing with creativity, great people, and amazing food! Our event ends on Friday, and we encourage attendees to stay the weekend to enjoy the city.

We are handpicking speakers who have bootstrapped their own tech startup. We’ll be learning from their personal journeys, specifically relating to one of the agenda items listed above. Each speaker is encouraged to leave ample time during their talk to field audience questions and help address real life scenarios.

sponsors

We’re not just accepting random sponsors.
All our sponsors are companies we admire, that we’d personally recommend bootstrap startups to consider. We want to be able to connect our audience to these great companies before, during, and even after the conference.
