TICKETS: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-social-pitch-tickets-24580110773 Hatch Innovation is proud to present The Social Pitch (formerly Hatch Soup).  Here's how it works: People with great, early-stage ideas (projects or startups) that will provide lasting benefit to their community submit applications, and we pick five of them to present their ideas on Sunday, August 7, 2016. Then, community members buy tickets to attend, which gets each attendee a bowl of hot soup and delicious bread, and (perhaps most importantly) a vote. After the five presentations, the attendees vote, and the project with the most votes takes away all of the money from ticket sales to make their project a reality. There is also plenty of time for networking and discussion - this is truly a positive and collaborative experience. In addition, all presenters get a three-month Hatch membership to work on their ideas. An alternative funding model for community good, Hatch:Soup provides citizens with an opportunity to receive funding and complete projects. Applicants Applicants answer application questions when they buy a ticket.  Applications are due by June 22, 2016.   Finalists If you're selected, you'll be notified by June 23, 2016. You'll be asked to prepare a five minute presentation with three slides, answering these questions: 1) Who are you? 2) What is the problem you are trying to solve? 3) How will your project solve it? And here's the catch: the 3 slides must be images only. No text. Show people what you're talking about! You'll be asked to send through the presentation slides to us, and also to bring along any materials that may help your case. Finalist are strongly encouraged to attend The Pitch Clinic on August 5th from 6:30pm-7:30pm, at Hatch.  Finalist will receive help with their presentation and slideshow at the clinic.  Please bring your presentation, slides, and ideas to the clinic. Attendees Your ticket price gets you a delicious bowl of soup and a vote. At the end of the afternoon, after hearing the presentations and a short Q&A session, ballots are counted, and the project with the most votes receives the money collected from ticket sales.  Things to Know: Is my project right for The Social Pitch? The three main criteria for selection are 1) That your idea/project/startup helps your community (or someone else's community), 2) That it provides lasting change, and 3) That it is currently in an early stage. How do we define early stage? Well, tell us if $500 - $1500 would make a difference to your idea. If that sounds like peanuts, then you're probably not right for Hatch:Soup. If you've already raised all the cash you need and want a platform to tell people about your idea - it's also not a good fit. We're looking for people who need some small seed funding for a tangible and impactful project. Can I apply to be a presenter if I don't live in Portland? Unfortunately, no. In the past, people living outside of Portland proper were at a disadvantage because their supporters were not able to attend the event (and vote).  Furthermore, the Hatch videographers found it logistically difficult to film projects taking place outside of Portland. But absolutely anyone can attend the event.  What is the Pitch Clinic? This is an amazing opportunity for the five finalists to get feedback about their presentation.  The Pitch Clinic is a one-hour session led by the Program Manager of the Sustainable Valley Technology Group, Rosetta Shaw. If you are selected to be a finalist, we strongly encourage you attend, although it is not mandatory. What if I'm not selected to present? If you're not selected, all is not lost. You still have a ticket to attend! At the event, you can learn from others, get a feel for what works, and also network with the community. You'll make contacts who can help you grow your idea, and using your one-day membership, you can see how Hatch helps social entrepreneurs thrive. Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? There are no age requirements to attend or apply to present at The Social Pitch. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? There is abundant on-street parking in the surrounding neighborhood.  Where can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email lex@hatchthefuture.org if you have any questions.   Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? Nope - this is the digital age. We'd actually prefer if you didn't print them out!

TICKETS: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/intro-to-the-cpo-for-entrepreneurs-713-webinar-tickets-26000189266 This webinar is for entrepreneurs and small business owners who are considering using Oregon's new Community Public Offering (CPO) to raise capital from their community. On January 15th, 2015, new Oregon securities crowdfunding law was passed. On January 22nd, Hatch Innovation helped launch the first nine companies to make use of this law, as well as the platform on which people can become local investors: HatchOregon.com. This webinar will provide an overview of the new law, and then spend time answering attendees' questions about how entrepreneurs might use Oregon's new Community Public Offering (CPO). Entrepreneurs may raise up to $250,000 from Oregon residents. You will learn:  If a CPO is right for you and your business Costs of raising capital this way The time commitments required for a successful raise The technical requirements of the rules (disclosure documents, business plan review, legal compliance) What the Hatch Oregon platform offers What the Investor Ready accelerator offers The presentation is approximately 1.5 hours, with 30 minutes available for Q&A. You will leave with a good understanding of the time commitment and costs involved with a community public offering, as well as how far along you are on the path to readiness.    FAQs   What is the refund policy? You may ask for a refund up to 24 hours before the webinar.   Why isn't this webinar free? Hatch Innovation is a 501(c)(3), and we're doing our best to democratize capital for small businesses all over Oregon. So far, we've done this on a shoestring budget - we rely on webinar and event tickets, along with donations and grants, to pay for our staff and technology costs. Your ticket helps us keep doing this important work around the state.
