Questions about the Portland startup community? Please join the next PIE AMA / Q&A and ask them

So about a month ago, I had the opportunity to sit down and chat with folks about their questions about the Portland startup community, finding cofounders, and the like. But we didn’t even scratch the surface of questions. So we’ve scheduled another session.

That’s why PIE has started a series of livestream conversations to keep the community connecting and conversing. Up next? PIE will be chatting with Shelly Bell of Black Girl Ventures.

Having to step up that Instagram account or Web presence? Get some photography mentorship to help

For many folks, this whole situation threw them into world where their online presence suddenly became their only presence. And that lifeline to community — and ultimately revenue — was immediately way way more important than it had been, even days earlier. So PIE thought it might be valuable to give you the chance to chat with a professional photographer to provide some mentorship and tips on how best to do that. In the most affordable and expedient fashion. That’s why they set up a Q&A with Aaron Hockley of Tech Photo Guy.

An experiment in heartbreak: PIE Demo Day 2020 moves to online, only

I thought I was going to have to cancel the very first PIE Demo Day.

Not in one of those, you know, hollow-threat-coach-voice-yelling “If you startups don’t get your acts together, we’re going to have to cancel demo day!” kind of way. Not at all. I thought we were going to have to cancel it because of forces beyond our control.

I can remember it clearly.

PIE Demo Day 2019: Watch from the comfort of your Web browser

After a blistering January of blogging, it’s gotten a little quiet around these parts. I apologize. But rest assured, it’s not you, Portland. It’s me. I’ve been heads down working with the PIE and PIE Shop startups on their PIE Demo Day 2019 pitches. And I’ve been working with my Startup Champions Network peers on the Startup Champions Summit. And, of course, working on Portland Startup Week 2019. All of which has made it super quiet around here. Mea culpa.

Design, ecosystems, and startups: Mark your calendars because March and April are going to be busy

Like the return of spring, it’s always nice to see the return of activity to the Portland startup community. As we shake off the slow down of the holidays, quickly lose that new year smell, and get back to full speed ahead. And this year, it may just be me, but March and April seem pleasantly even more crowded than usual.

Craving a bit of PIE? Maybe a good old fashioned Portland startup demo day would help

There was a time that there were nearly a dozen startup accelerators in Portland. All with demo days of various flavors. Some were targeted at investors. Some at corporations. Some at community. But what they all had in common was celebration. Celebrating a group of founders and the companies they were building.

Five years ago, Portland's startup scene was approaching the end of a very long and incredibly rewarding day

Every year, as the holidays roll around, I am reminded of a time when we—as a scrappy startup scene—all pulled together as a group to do something amazing. It was truly a first. And it was a fortifying moment for what the Portland startup scene and its friends could accomplish when we put our minds—and hearts—to it. This year, it’s the five year anniversary of that event. It was called 30 Hour Day. Read More

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
