Life Skills for Killing It.

Portland Startup Week special event: PowerUp Bring-Your-Own Lunch

The Portland Startup Women's group has launched a skillshare series called PowerUp lunches designed to help you level up your skills and confidence as a kick-ass business women. Why lunch? It's hard to fit everything into a day and you need to re-fuel anyway.

For Portland Startup Week, we’re hosting a public event, open to all humans interested in leveling up (or replenishing) life skills needed throughout the startup journey, whether you’re just beginning or beginning to burn out.


Learn from the best! Christa King, Jordan Hayles and Monica Borrell are accomplished, bold, human and willing to share their skills! Names don't ring a bell yet? Scroll down to check out their profiles.

Our goal is to make sure you leave with a new tip, resource or practice you can use to level up your hustle. Come with curiosity. Leave with confidence. And a new friend, or two.


We'll be meeting at CENTRL East, in their front auditorium. Doors open at 11:30am and we'll start at noon sharp. There's so much to share and learn!

  • Doors + Socializing: 11:30am - Noon

  • Session: Noon - 1pm

  • Socializing + Close: 1 - 1:30pm

How to find us and what to bring
