Portland Start-up Index: February 2008


As promised, Techvibes [Full disclosure: I contribute Portland articles to Techvibes] has released its monthly update to the Portland Start-up Index, which has now increased to 50 companies.

And that’s not all that has changed. Now, the index has some movement indicators, showing who was where and where they’ve gone—up or down.

New additions include Kongregate (didn’t realize they had a Portland office), Rocketbook, Iterasi [Full disclosure: Client of mine], Active Reload, WeoGeo (recently relocated from Florida), VocalNation.net, GoLife Mobile, and Worldwide Nest.

As far as movers go, ChoiceA, Lunarr, and MomHub saw the biggest upticks. As expected, number of folks were sent screaming down the list with the addition of the new companies.

The mixture of companies and products on the index are ranked by the average of their Alexa and Compete rankings.

Since each revision of the index replaces the previous one, I’ve captured the list, for posterity:

    This is really fun to watch. What would make this more interesting is to see, next to these numbers, items like:

    1) Funding amount, if any
    2) Number of employees
    3) Revenue

    At any rate, Go Portland!

    Ben,

    Great feedback. I agree. Some other metrics would definitely help to round out the picture of what’s happening here in town.

    And as the widget-based-solutions folks have mentioned, a number of widget views, installs, Facebook users,… or whatever would be interesting, given the widget sites don’t really work on drawing traffic to their sites.

    Still, interesting to watch this grow and change.
