Let’s kick off the festival in style this year with an event just for you - the founders. We're bringing together founders/makers of Oregon-based consumer product companies for an evening of community building. Take a night off from the grind of building your companies to hang and connect with your peers. You deserve a fun and relaxing evening!

As in years past, this event will connect a breadth of industries and regions through conversations and introductions. This is where tech, consumer products, services, agencies, and creatives collide.

This event is for founders and leaders of product companies only. Food & drinks will be provided.
