Can’t get enough of crowdfunding? Neither can Portland, apparently. This week, you have no less than three business crowdfunding events, each with a different focus and approach.

On Wednesday, OEN presents a Pub Talk on raising startup capital through Kickstarter. Moderated by Scott Schroeder of Mega Tech, Benjamin Jacobsen of Jacobsen Salt and Casey Hopkins of Elevation Lab will share their crowdfunding campaign stories. 5:15 p.m. at Backspace. $30.

This Friday, we’re joining Nedspace and the Social Venture Society to host “Crowdfunding for Social Entrepreneurs.” Alex Budak, co-founder of StartSomeGood, will talk fundraising as storytelling and tips for running a successful campaign. Anaïs Tuepker, co-founder of, will discuss her successful campaign as a social entrepreneur. 5 p.m. at the PSU School of Business, Room 170. FREE.

And on Saturday, an OTBC crowdfunding workshop will walk you through creating your pitch, developing content, and determining your budget for a successful business crowdfunding campaign. 10 a.m. at OTBC. $325.

Happy crowdfunding!
