Portland Ten Lunch 2.0 at NedSpace

So, you’re going to want to pay attention to this Lunch 2.0 announcement. It’s full of firsts.

Last month, we had our first non-tech company host a Portland Lunch 2.0, and now, we’re having the first multi-hosted one.

Portland Ten, Stoel Rives, FundingUniverse, and NedSpace are hosting Portland Lunch 2.0 on August 26, 2009 at NedSpace in Old Town.

That’s not all, though. From 12:00 to 12:45, there will be a livepitch session, which is free for anyone to watch.

So, this will be the first time I’ve seen a livepitch, which should be interesting, and it’s the first time we’ve had a Lunch 2.0 with an event within the event. Good times. I’m told livepitch is like American Idol for entrepreneurs, with several “contestants” and a panel of judges.

If you’re interested in pitching, you can find details here.

Right after the pitches end, the usual Lunch 2.0 networking and socializing begins.

Sounds interesting, and I’m guessing this confluence of firsts will create a nice mix of several communities who should probably talk more in a single location.

Thanks to Carolynn Duncan (@hundreddollar) from Portland Ten for pulling this together, should be fun.

Here’s the skinny:
