As I said earlier today and this afternoon, it’s always a pleasure to see Portland startups recognized by folks. Especially national publications. Like Forbes. Which is what happened with MilkRun founder and CEO Julia Niiro, who was among the first 250 people named to the Forbes Next 1000. (Okay, she’s in Austin now. But MilkRun is still very much a Portland startup in my opinion.)Read More
I had a dream the other night about volcanoes, so this one hit a little close to home. Both figuratively and literally. Apparently, Portland, Oregon, is not long for this world, according a recent opinion piece published by Forbes.Read More
It’s always nice to see Portland startups getting the attention they deserve. Especially when those startups are working on solutions for signifiant problems. Like Portland startup MilkRun, a company that is rethinking the way food systems work to make them more sustainable, equitable, and healthy. Forbes recently took notice of these efforts.Read More
It’s always nice to see Portland companies featured in national media. Especially when it’s folks who you know have been hard at work, building amazing companies, with little to no media recognition for what they’ve been doing. Like Walker Tracker, which was just featured in Forbes as an example of the participants in the XXcelerate Fund.
Portland, Oregon, has long been celebrated for its amazing food, beer, urban environment, and quirkiness, among other things. But more and more, we’re starting to see the Rose City land on lists for its startup community and its tech scene. Now, Forbes has highlighted Portland as one of five cities poised to become tomorrow’s tech meccas.
I try to do my best to recognize all of the amazing people building awesome companies around here. But it’s always nice when others take the opportunity to do so. Especially when they’re major publications with prestigious lists. Like Forbes 30 under 30 who just named Lynn Le, founder of Society Nine, among its 2018 class.
Well, I definitely didn’t see this one coming. But thanks to the constant influx of smart and talented folks to complement all of the smart and talented folks we were already lucky enough to have around these parts, Portland is Forbes best place for business and careers, this year.
