Portland Startup Weekend: Five startup projects launched in 54 hours


Portland Startup WeekendWhat did you do this past weekend?

Yeah, really? Oh? You don’t say. Oh, that sounds nice. Me? Oh, you know. The usual.

Say, you’ll never guess what a bunch of our peers did over the weekend, though.

Oh, not much. Just started five separate startup projects.

That’s right. The group that gathered for Portland Startup Weekend managed to launch five startup projects: Get Gathered, Life Grant, Mugasha, Startup River, and TreasuRecycle.

They’re all in various states of startupedness, currently. But, rest assured, I’ll be dedicating posts to each of these projects as they gain their footing.

For now, let’s focus on Portland Startup Weekend, itself, with a good ol’ fashioned Silicon Florist round up:

No doubt more posts will be emerging as the participants recover from the weekend. And I’ll work to capture them here.

If you’ve posted something that I’ve missed, please comment and I’ll make sure to link it up.

    It was a blast to participate in Startup Weekend. I was part of the Get Gathered team. We had a tremendous amount of teamwork and camaraderie and were very proud of what we accomplished with just five people in 2.5 days. I think all the other teams would concur my sentiments.

  2. Shoot. I wish I’d been there.
    I assume it goes down every Memorial Day Weekend?
    If so I’d love to come next year.
