Have Lunch with OpenSesame
OpenSesame (@opensesamenow) will be our next Lunch 2.0 host on July 27.
You might remember OpenSesame from such honors as the grand prize at OEN Angel Oregon back in March.
What does OpenSesame do?
I’ll let Rick (@turoczy) explain:
The new venture—which combines talents from previous Portland startups like Eleven Wirelessand SplashCast—is very much an app store for corporate training videos. Allowing trainers from a wide variety of disciplines to get their content in front of corporations. And providing corporate HR departments with an API to hook the curriculum right into their existing training systems.
Ah eLearning, you’re probably familiar with those HR compliance courses you’re mandated to take every few years on sexual harassment, insider trading, privacy and security, etc., but there’s so much more out there from educators like Khan Academy and Capturator.
OpenSesame brings all that content together, connecting buyers and sellers in a marketplace.
When: July 27, 2011 from 12 PM to 2 PM
Update: I’m told Google Maps and GPS directions are a bit flakey for the address, especially if you’re coming from the West. So, for clarification, OpenSesame is in the Portland State Business Accelerator, which is at the intersection of SW Corbett and SW Meade. Need more help? Here are driving directions from the PSBA.

Big thanks to all the hosts who have hosted or plan to host Lunch 2.0. As with the majority of the tech events in Portland, sponsors make them happen. So, we humbly thank you.
