Startup Weekend Access- Game On


Yes, we have some very cold weather. We are so EXCITED about everything we have planned for the weekend. Inspiring entrepreneurs speakers, the opportunity to make that idea of yours a reality and all while having a great time and meeting awesome connections you may have for years to come, not to mention delicious food! According to the current forecast; we see no reason to cancel the event. Now if the worst happens, ie the city or trimet officially closes due to weather, we will reconsider. Other options, will be to close the venue around 9 pm instead of 11 pm on Friday and Saturday, so everyone can get home safely. At any time throughout the weekend, it is up to you to stay.

The venue is right on the max line and the major bus mall, once you have arrived everything you need will be provided. Please find directions below. The speakers, mentors, organizers, participants and food are coming. Per our terms for ticket purchasers, we do nt give refunds <7days prior to the event. We will obviously try to accommodate everyone’s needs and individuals’ situations, however cannot make any guarantees on refunds. Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions by emailing:
