One of the reasons I started Silicon Florist was to use my marketing powers for good, by casting the spotlight on “Portland Web 2.0 startups” and individuals who have been developing really, really cool things here in the Silicon Forest. But who, through sheer lack of time, may not have the opportunity or wherewithal to promote themselves as much as they would like.
I’m happy to report that a number of those companies just got a much brighter spotlight shone on them, thanks to Oregon Business Magazine‘s cover story this month “10 Coolest Tech Startups You’ve Never Heard Of.”
Among the Silicon Florist alumni featured are:
- Values of n (Sandy and Stikkit)
- JanRain (myOpenID, pibb)
- NetworthIQ (now part of Strands)
- Grabb.it (Silicon Florist’s first post)
- Walker Tracker
- Urban Drinks
Congratulations to all of those featured for stepping on to a much larger stage! I’ll look forward to continuing to cover your progress and highlighting your wins.
