There is another, Skywalker…. Well, and another Techtown Portland video featuring Portland startups and tech companies

[UPDATE] The new Techtown Portland video has been released. [/UPDATE] Remember 18 months ago when a bunch of Portland startups joined forces to create the Techtown Portland video? You know, the one that highlighted a few of the amazing startups in town? Well, turns out, there are even more awesome startups here than that video could handle. So they’re releasing a sequel. And you’re invited to the premiere.

Join us at Smarsh’s new headquarters as we unveil TechTown Portland: People on the Move! This short video reveals why Portland is a thriving hub for tech companies, by following six individuals who explain why moving to Portland to work was the right decision.

From the food carts to the beautiful scenery, Portland has something for everyone, and the growing tech scene boasts collaboration and creativity. Our artisanal culture extends from arts and crafts, breweries, and food to creating what’s next in tech.

We already know how wonderful Portland is; now it’s time to give a bigger audience a glimpse of what our vibrant city has to offer. Our firms are growing with the best and brightest, but we need to attract more talent to support the local companies whose innovative technologies are gaining world acclaim.

The event will be held Wednesday, January 20, at Smarsh. Doors open at 5:00PM. The video will be shown at 5:30PM.

If you want to hang out with some of your peers and see the latest film, please RSVP for Techtown Portland: People on the Move. And if you can’t make it, I’ll try to get a copy of the video posted as soon as it’s made available to the public.
