While we always try to make PIE Demo Day an event for the community, it’s not always easy to break away from work to watch startup pitches. We get it. That’s why we livestream the whole thing.

PIE Demo Day 2014 livestream: If you can't join us in person, please join us from the comfort of your laptop or mobile device

Like any startup accelerator, PIE likes to make its demo days as accessible as it possibly can. We always host it in a big theater. But that sold out quickly, this year. So we added a simulcast venue thanks to our friends at eBay Portland. But now both of those venues are standing room only. So in order to make sure that everyone has a chance to experience the event, we’re going to be livestreaming PIE Demo Day again. Read More

When we started PIE five years ago, we were very much focused on trying to enrich the Portland startup community.

Instead of making it purely an investor invent, we wanted it to be a community event. Read More

Making it count: Nike+ Accelerator powered by TechStars launches 10 new Nike FuelBand focused startups

With apologies to Robert Frost… something there is that does love a demo day. For any startup accelerator. But when it comes to combining TechStars—arguably the king of startup demo days—and Nike—one of the leading consumer brands on the planet—it’s sure to be an amazing show. And that it was, as the Nike+ Accelerator powered by TechStars unveiled its inaugural class at Nike world headquarters in Beaverton. Read More
