What’s MioWorks? Find out at Lunch 2.0

MioWorks, David Abramowski‘s new venture, opened to a private preview last week at Ignite Portland 5.

If you were at IP5 or saw David (or Manuel) last week, you probably were one of the lucky few to get an in invitation to the private preview. If you didn’t get an invite, no worries, MioWorks will be hosting a Lunch 2.o at the Green Dragon on April 8, and I’m sure there will be plenty of invites to the new service.

You read that right. The venue is the Green Dragon, the geek-friendly SE watering hole, home to Portland Beer and Blog and B&B Worldwide HQ.

Wondering why? MioWorks is a tiny, little startup right now, and they don’t have a space big enough to hold a typical Lunch 2.0 crowd. So, rather than hold a small lunch with a guestlist, they figured why not find a bigger space, and the Green Dragon happily obliged.

This will come up eventually; the food will be on MioWorks, but the booze will not. That shouldn’t stop you from having a liquid lunch if you want; the Green Dragon is certainly a great place for that.

And hey, this is April we’re talking about, so maybe Spring will spring early. You know what that means: the patio may be open, which would make for a great mix and mingle. This is Portland though, making it equally likely that April 8 will see several inches of snow. We can always hope.

If you can’t wait that long to learn about MioWorks, check out their Intro slide deck and their origins video.

    No worries. Content here exists only b/c of the grace of Rick. So, therefore, you are correct to thank him.

  4. [...] MioWorks made its first appearance in February at Ignite 5 and has since entered beta. I’ll be there this Wednesday to grill Manuel about the roadblocks they’ve encountedered thus far and find out how many users are currently using their application. Get the full scoop from Jake over at Silicon Florist. [...]
