In celebration of Portland Startup Week running April 2 through April 6, 2018, Startup Radio Network is hosting the first ever 24 hour live nonstop startupathon where over 100 local Portland, Oregon startup founders and entrepreneurs will be sharing their personal stories of incredible success, abject failure and overall Portlandness. This event is being held in the heart of beautiful downtown Portland, as over 100 entrepreneurs share their business acumen with listeners from around the world.

In the Portland spirit of collaboration, connection and vision for a better world, we will use this 24 hour event as a platform to raise $5,000 for female entrepreneurs in developing countries around the world. The funds we raise will be distributed 100% transparently through microfinance platform, Kiva, where the starting count is 7,257 entrepreneurs, 98% of which are women in developing countries.  

Starting 10:00am pacific time on Monday April 2nd and running until 10:00am Tuesday April 3rd, hosts Amelia Pape (founder of My Street Grocery, acquired by Whole Foods, and Principal, ALICE Impact), Sara Batterby (Principal, The Batterby Group) and Mark Grimes (co-founder Startup Radio Network) will do their best to entertain you as they lose their collective minds from lack of sleep. This is not a Guinness Book of World Records attempt for longest podcast at 24 hours live broadcasting; however, this just may be the train wreck you've been waiting to hear. Startup is messy, unpredictable, sleep-depriving and full of inspiring characters...just like this podcast.
