Startupalooza: Join fellow startups to compare notes


Anecdotally, I can tell you that there’s a great deal of interest in startups around Portland. But sometimes, it’s difficult to put a finger on just how many people are interested.

Until events like Startupalooza come along. And then that fuzzy “level of interest” becomes exceedingly obvious.

How obvious? Well, the event, like Legion of Tech‘s Ignite Portland events, currently ranks among the most popular events on Upcoming. And not just in Portland. On Upcoming. Period.

And with good reason. Startupalooza’s list of presenters reads like a who’s who of current and former Silicon Forest startups.

Companies and products on the docket include:

But wait, there’s more.

Sarah Gilbert, Marshall Kirkpatrick [Update: Just received word that Marshall will be unable to attend.], Justin Kistner, and I will be there on a “technopreneur” Q&A panel, as well.

I know, I know. I struggle to fathom how we’re going to squeeze all of this into one afternoon. But why not show up and see if we can? And then, plan to stick around. Word around the campfire is that there might be one or two after-event activities happening, as well.

Startupalooza begins at noon on Saturday, March 29, at CubeSpace. To RSVP, visit Startupalooza on Upcoming. For more information, see Startupalooza.

Still need more to do this weekend? You’re in luck, my friend. Go ahead, don’t be shy. Get your geek on.

Like this post? There are more. Every week.
Plus events, jobs, and community offers.

  1. I tend to use TechCrunch as a gauge for how hot a startup is (which may or may not be a good thing) and a number of the companies represented at Startupalooza have been featured recently. Vidoop, Jive, GarageGames. AboutUs, Earth Class Mail and MyStrands in the recent past.

    This has become the who’s who of NW tech startups!

    TechCrunch, you say? Hmmm. Sounds interesting. I may have to start reading that one.

    Oh I kid. ;)

  3. We have some hot startups that I’m excited to hear from. Also looking forward to sharing the “technopreneur” panel with such esteemed company. This will be a great event!

  4. [...] This Saturday, the 29th, is Startupalooza.org in Portland, OR. AboutUs is participating. See the Silicon Florist post about it: Startupalooza: Join fellow startups to compare notes [...]
