In celebration of Portland Startup Week which ran April 2 through April 6, 2018, Startup Radio Network hosted the first ever 24 hour live nonstop startupathon where over 100 local Portland, Oregon startup founders and entrepreneurs shared their personal stories of incredible success, abject failure and overall Portlandness. This event was held at NedSpace, in beautiful downtown Portland, over 100 entrepreneurs shared their business acumen with listeners from around the world.

In the Portland spirit of collaboration, connection and vision for a better world, we used this 24 hour event as a platform to raise $5,000 for female entrepreneurs in developing countries around the world. The funds we raised 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. We ended up raising 223% of our goal.
We started 10:00am pacific time on Monday April 2nd and ran 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) did their best to entertain listeners as they lost their collective minds from lack of sleep. This was 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.

Tune-in and listen to an encore broadcast at and let the wild rumpus begin. Have questions? Use #startupradionetwork on Twitter, Instagram, or wherever hashtags are sold.
