    Wow, this sounds like a great opportunity for a Business Major like myself! I’d love to attend this event, as I’ve never been to something like this before. Would be a great experience. Thanks!

    Fabulous opportunity!! Graduating with a masters in the design field and would love to hear a discussion on turning innovation into business and how I can apply that to my own entrepreneur endeavor. Much Appreciated – sounds exciting!

    As a startup veteran who has been out of work for a bit too long now, I drool over events like these, but they just aren’t in the budget at the moment. I would love the opportunity to hear the panelists ideas on cultivating innovation and community.

    Collaboration allows the mind to exercise and create. My behaviors are more common with early adopters, rather than with the innovators of the world. Being able to listen to natural creators would be awesome! I’d love to go PDXPipeline fam!

    Being a science major my entire driving force is to collaborate with other cunning individuals. To hear how groups of people come together to take and idea and transform it into a business would be an honor.

    I am an entrepreneur at heart. My dreams, visions and ideas are what I feed on. I would love more than anything to hear other visionaries speak about their challenges, as well as their extraordinary accomplishments.
    As I build my business I’m left looking for guidance to overcome obstacles and hope to flood my mind with a wealth of positive motivation and inspiration.

    Thanks! :)
