Resiliency Series

TAO’s “Resiliency Series” was created as an opportunity for community members to hear directly from elected officials and key community stakeholders about issues related to the resiliency of our region.

On March 31st, TAO President & CEO Skip Newberry hosted OROS Co-Founder & CEO Michael Markesbery. 

Michael and his team commercialized technology developed by NASA to insulate spacecraft by incorporating it into high-tech apparel with zero bulk and maximum warmth. Michael and Skip’s conversation covered the following topics:

  • Why OROS relocated to Portland from Ohio
  • Advice for startups interested in leveraging the federal government as a partner
  • Michael’s experience of raising money in Oregon
  • How the OROS team will be expanding.
