OTBC’s Virtual Incubation Program is an “Entrepreneur 101” course of online videos with a lot of information for entrepreneurs. The “Angel Investing” and “11 Mistakes to Avoid” mini courses are free. See OTBC staff to get a free account for the “Start and Fund a Growth Startup” course.
The Beaverton Challenge is a program sponsored by the City of Beaverton and Westside Startup Fund, LLC where five startups are selected to receive a $25,000 cash convertible-note investment along with incubation services from the Oregon Technology Business Center (OTBC).
OTBC has both Frontier and Comcast service – so we should always have internet access. Both are 50 megabit. The Frontier service is connected to routers in Suite 260 and Suite 266. The Comcast service is used by RocketML, but the routers that are normally connected to Frontier are switched over to Comcast if Frontier goes down (that seems to happen once every year or two).
Frontier wireless routers with 50 megabit service:
Password: 9700597005 (the zip code twice)
Suite 260 also has a Comcast modem (50 megabit) that we can patch to the above routers should the Frontier service have problems.
Suite 260 is also wired with Ethernet with various Ethernet ports located throughout the space–all connected to the “patch panel” in the “switch room” (the room behind the reception area). To arrange for one of these ports to be connected to the Frontier router, see Steve Morris.
Suite 266 today has a wireless router in the Suite 266 conference room. There is some ethernet wiring in Suite 266 but we have not traced the cables to see exactly which cable is connected to which wall port. Wireless router login info is posted in the conference room.
