Portland Business Roundtable - October

Time: 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM


Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Jarred Baker '12
Founder & Director | War Scooters
Multnomah Athletic Club, Portland

Jarred Baker didn’t wait until he graduated from OSU-Cascades to put his business degree to work. An avid skateboarder, he saw increasing numbers of scooters at Bend skateboarding parks and recognized a market opportunity. In a venture management course in September 2011, Jarred developed a business plan for War Scooters, an online retailer of scooters, parts and accessories, in just three weeks. Soon, he rang up his first sales, and on Christmas, he was up until midnight packing orders while also completing his last term of school. War Scooters has since quadrupled its growth projections. While he’s finished his degree, Jarred still retains his connections to OSU-Cascades. He considers his professors integral to helping make the business successful and still calls them when issues arise. They immediately want to help.
