Have your PIE and eat it too. I mean, if we have pie at Portland Lunch 2.0.
There’s only one little problem…
You see, PIE isn’t terribly big. And there are a whole heck of a lot of you who have RSVPd for the event. So we won’t be having the event in PIE.
But we’ll still be hosting it. Over at Henry’s Tavern.
With nearly 500 people attending, it’s bound to be a little crazy. But we hope you’ll still plan on joining us.
What’s PIE you ask? PIE is the Portland Incubator Experiment, a startup accelerator that helps early stage startups with office space, a little capital, a lot of mentorship, and a whole bunch of connections. All in hopes of making Portland one of the most awesome startup towns in the world. What’s more, we’ve partnered with Wieden+Kennedy—creators of “Just Do It,” the Old Spice Guy, and the agency of record for Facebook—to give startups access to agency creatives and brand partners.
And in addition to it being pi day, it’s also smack dab in the middle of PIE applications. Meaning that if you’ve got a startup, we’d love to talk to you. And I mean, who in this town doesn’t have a startup or side project, really? Am I right?
Tap tap tap. Is this thing on? Ahem.
So if you’re interested in applying to PIE, submit your application via AngelList or Google Docs. Not quite ready? Here’s a cheat sheet with the PIE application questions to help you prepare. Have questions? Please track down one of the PIE staff, alums, or mentors at lunch to chat about the program and give us the pitch on your startup.
