Portland Start-up Index for August 2008: Metafilter, Digital Trends premiere in top 10


It’s that time again. Time for the Techvibes Portland Start-up Index, the monthly round up of Portland-area startup companies and products, ranked by the average of their Alexa and Compete rankings.

Admittedly a work-in-progress, the Portland Start-up Index often premieres “new” entries that have been—in actuality—heavy hitters for far longer than some of the “old” companies and products on the list.

This month’s list is a perfect example of that dynamic in action, as MetaFilter (July 1999) and Digital Trends (2001) premiere in the top 10 at #2 and #5 respectively.

So how did the rest of the startup scene fare this month?

    Where does MSix fit into this list? Or do they? They
    did win Angel Oregon.

  5. Hey, Rick, I suggested they add Pulse Health to the list as well. You might want to get them on your radar, it’s where Chris Marsh landed.

    They’re a little different, as they’re initially going to be selling through the MLM channel, but you’ll want to get them on your radar for sure.
