Startup Weekend: Access was founded on the premise that the entrepreneurial experience should be available to everyone. The volunteer organizers, all veterans of Portland Startup Weekend, scrutinized every aspect of the experiences- tools, processes, even food- and questioned how accessible they really were. The result is an event that is carefully planned, but responsive to the needs of any participant of any ability.
Unfortunately, there are factors out of our control and the weather is one of them. We’re sad to report that we are postponing Startup Weekend: Access due to the “Snowpocalypse” happening in the Portland area. We want you to know that we used the same planning criteria to make this decision. Ultimately, we didn’t have alternatives for safe accessibility transportation in these conditions. Rest assured that Startup Weekend: Access will happen sometime soon!
