PORTLAND, Ore. - The Portland startup scene is churning, but you don't have to tell John Friess.
Back in 2000, Friess and his brother Mark were deep in startup land building a Web platform for sharing medical videos. While they had a lot of help, there weren't many formal ways to access the resources that all entrepreneurs need like legal help and investor feedback.
Along with other startup founders, Friess decided to remedy the situation by launching Starve Ups, according to the Portland Business Journal.
The peer mentoring network now has 45 member businesses, a network that provides access to commonly needed resources, events and each other.
Last weekend, Starve Ups hosted LaunchPad IV, its annual crash course in all things startup. It attracted a wide swath of Portland’s startup scene, including investors, entrepreneurs and students.
