The Founders’ Guide (download here) is a directory of services, events, and support resources for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the Portland community. This a free publication Portland Ten produces three times annually. We encourage you to use this resource and share it with your associates.

Portland Ten is joined for the September - December 2010 session by our  featured Sponsors, including Davis, Wright, Tremaine, Voyager Capital, Perkins & Company, Silicon Valley Bank, Stephenson Group, Amy Winkelman Consulting, Al Nodarse Sales Training, and Jim McConnell, CFO.

Featured Sponors make financial and/or in-kind contributions to Portland Ten’s Perpetual Entrepreneurship Fund and offer Skill Development workshops in sales, legal, venture capital fundraising, accounting, debt finance, public relations, product management, financial forecasting, and more.

We’d like to thank our Summer and Fall 2010 community sponsors who have provided valuable support for our Skill Development Workshops, the Founder’s Guide, and all Portland Ten programs. If you are interested in getting involved as a Sponsor, please contact Nick Cottle at
