Bertony Faustin
A show about entrepreneurs of color in Portland, Oregon

DI Squared stands for "Dream it, Do it."  It's a series about people in Portland who've started their own companies.  Each week we feature three elements:

  • A profile of an entrepreneur, someone who's actually started a business and made it successful.
  • A featured resource that listeners can use to get funding or other types of help.
  • A burning question of the week from a listener.

This first episode tells the story of Bertony Faustin, the first and only black wine maker in Oregon.   His family came from Haiti.   Bertony moved from New York to Portland and now operates a winery on the edge of the city.
