No such a thing as free lunch? There will be when Silicon Florist hosts Portland Lunch 2.0
After all of this posting about Portland Lunch 2.0 and attending Portland Lunch 2.0 and acquiring Portland Lunch 2.0, it seemed only proper that I actually put my money where my mouth is. So I thought it might be nice if I actually took the dive and hosted a Portland Lunch 2.0.
And I would really, truly be honored if you had a few moments to attend.
I’m planning to hold it August 13. And CubeSpace has been kind of enough to offer up space for the event.
I’m really hoping you can make it.
Do I sound desperate? Good. Because I am.
Rest assured, I’ve got a couple of other things up my sleeve. So, hopefully, there will be a free lunch and a little bit more.
But in any case, it would be really nice to see you. I mean, we’ve been so busy this summer. And I want to make sure that you’re doing okay. Oh, and I want to have you meet some of the other folks who make Portland such a cool place for startups.
One other thing? Holding this event in August is kind of special to me, because one year ago this August, I woke up at 2 AM, registered a surprisingly available URL, and started Silicon Florist.
So, this is a celebration of sorts. An anniversary. Or a birthday. Or whatever you want to call it.
It would be great to see you on August 13. Please take a moment to save the date by RSVPing on Upcoming for this get together. And soon, there will be more exciting news about what’s happening. Maybe.
Tell your friends. Everyone is welcome. Techie or not.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
P.S. If you’re a Web-based, Web-oriented, or Mobile-based startup in the Silicon Forest—whether I’ve had the opportunity to cover you or not—why not take a few moments to send a logo to siliconflorist at gmail? I’d like to see if we can’t work on getting your name out there at this event.
