  • Nedspace 707 Southwest Washington Street #1100 Portland, OR, 97205 United States (map)

Join as at the upcoming 4th Annual Woman Led (un)Conference! This annual event brings together local business owners to create an open and ongoing dialogue, share their experiences and resources, and to expand their network of like minded people in their community.

The (un)conference follows an open format, where the topics discussed are driven by the participants and their interests and needs. We will begin the day with some time to meet other participants, followed by an introduction to the (un)conference format and creation of the days agenda!

This years (un)Conference will be followed by a Fundraising Panel featuring an amazing group of women with a lot to teach us about how to get your business funded.

We are excited to welcome:

>> Sara Batterby of The Batterby Group who has working in Venture Capital, has raised money as the co-founder of Hi-Fi farms, and now helps other women business owners get the funding they need.

>> Jill Keulher of Freeland Spirits. Jill left a long career in Nonprofits to start the first woman owned and run distillery in the country. In only a couple years she has successfully raised 2 rounds of funding and has enjoyed critical acclaim

>> Julia Niiro of MilkRun.  Julia launched MilkRun in 2017 after falling in love with small scale farming, but seeing first hand the difficulty of being a small scale producer.  MilkRun was created to solve the marketing and logistics hurdles of small producers, using technology to replicate joint collection and delivery.
