Portland Start-up Index for October 2008: Must be autumn because everyone’s falling


Techvibes has added some new features to their startup indices in time for the release of the Portland Start-up Index for October 2008.

So who are the movers and shakers this month?

Iterasi is the big climber, moving up 12 slots to crack the top 20. Earth Class Mail and Free Range were the only others to make positive progress, moving up one slot a piece.

But boy-oh-boy are there some people dropping down the list. Grabb.it, Pibb, and Rocketbook all slid 13 spots each to lead the pack. And a ton of other folks fell close to 10 spots. It was veritable race to the bottom of the list.

So, here’s how the rankings stand this month:

    Looks like the list is growing, adding some great companies in the last few months. That could account for some of the slipage, I would assume.

  2. Ben Parzybok says:

    I realize it’s nice in terms of the news standpoint to announce the index at the beginning of each month – however in doing so they miss the previous month’s actual stats from Compete (and maybe Alexa?). Compete will announce updated stats for September in about a week. So really this data reflects August, instead of September. I would prefer Techvibes waited a week in order to announce more recent data.

    @Ben Good point! I’ll definitely keep this sort of thing in mind with the index I’m building in the Silicon Florist laboratory. (Shh! Don’t tell anyone.)
