Winners of TiE Oregon Westside Pitch Competition 2022

If you, like me, didn’t get a chance to attend the Westside Pitch Competition, last week, it sounds like we missed a great event. It also sounds like the big winner, overall, was community. With nearly 100 folks attending in person. (And I’ve been hearing similar reports about solid attendance from recent in-person gatherings like PitchBlack and OEN PubTalks, as well.)

Which is why I’ve really appreciated the work of Portland’s April Rinne, who has captured some of her thinking in Flux: 8 superpowers for thriving in constant change.

Like talking science? Consider attending Science Talk ’22

I don’t know about you, but as an admitted introvert, I’m really liking the continued opportunities to attend hybrid events from the comfort of my desktop while other folks get to show up in person. Extroverts get what they need. Introverts get what they need. And if what you need is more science in your life, then you’re going to want to check out the upcoming Science Talk ’22, a hybrid online and IRL event.

Hoping for a hardware-focused happy hour? Huzzah! Your hopes have been handled, honorably.

I don’t want to get my hopes up. Or our collective hopes up. But there’s something about a new happy hour popping up on Meetup that makes me think that things may be changing for the better. Especially when it’s a gathering that brings together a community of folks who could use more happy hours. Like the local hardware community. Meet Hardware Happy Hour (3H) Portland.

The next Portland Incubator Experiment experiment

If you’ve followed PIE at all, you probably realize that they take the “E” in their name — which stands for “experiment” — fairly seriously. As a way of exploring new opportunities. And to ensure that they continue trying new things. Even if those things have a likelihood of failing.

REMINDER: Portland Lunch 2.0, still BYOL and virtual… but social

While we had all hoped to be through the whole pandemic thing by now, it’s still doing an incredible job of wreaking havoc on in-person events around these parts — and making every day seem like a repeat of the day before. While not ideal, virtual events still hold the potential to give us some semblance of human connection until we can gather IRL again. And there’s an opportunity to do so, this week: Portland Lunch 2.0.
