Engineering and Technology Management
The purpose of this study is to investigate the apparent disconnect with the Portland area entrepreneurial community and its ability to leverage the high-tech human capital in the region. Interviews conducted with persons in the venture funding community will be combined with a literature search to investigate the problem, if any, and to determine the source, if possible. Conclusions, recommendations, and suggested areas of further study will be proposed based on findings of the project team.
