Based on popular demand, Portland Ten is now offering Startup Checkups to entrepreneurs in the Portland community– the opportunity to receive a 360⁰ review of their business on a one-time, monthly, or bi-monthly basis.

Startup Checkups are a 1-on-1 meeting conducted by a trained Portland Ten venture analyst, as an opportunity for founders to gain perspective from an unbiased 3rd party, and receive pertinent suggestions and feedback on the current condition of the business.

Startup Checkups help entrepreneurs identify opportunities and problems they may be overlooking, talk through current difficulties, master the skill of receiving honest feedback, and connect into Portland Ten’s network of contacts and resources.

Each Checkup is conducted at a convenient time and location for the founder’s schedule. To schedule a Checkup, please contact Nick Cottle at
