I don’t always meet with other cities, but when I do…? They’re the Most Innovative City in the World

While I’ve never had the chance to visit, I’ve heard a great deal about Medellin, Colombia. And how they have an incredible startup scene. And tons of government support. That’s why it’s no surprise that they’ve been called the Most Innovative City in the World. And now, representatives of that Innovative City are visiting the Rose City. And you’re invited to come chat with them.

The long and the short of it: Nedspace hosts tallest founder in tiniest office

Something there is about Portland that loves its tiny spaces. Tiny houses. Tiny food carts. Tiny cluttered coffeeshops and boutiques. And so it should come as no surprise that local coworking space Nedspace has a tiny space of it’s own. But what might be surprising is who inhabits it. Read More

Everything old is new again: Next generation of Portland coworking spaces begins to take shape

Portland was pretty early on the coworking bandwagon. The lean and collegial environments—with little required in terms of financial commitment—seemed to work well with our disparate workforce and pervading startup culture. And folks flocked to them even in the doldrums of the last decade. Read More

REMINDER: Open Source Bridge 2010 town hall meeting tonight at NedSpace Old Town

So if you’ve got a few extra cycles and have an interest in open source, I highly suggest you swing by NedSpace Old Town to help the Open Source Bridge folks plan Open Source Bridge 2010, tonight.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times (at least): Portland loves the open source. Loves it. From user groups to committing to code to supporting all things open, it’s part of the very makeup of our tech community. And no single event proves that love for open source more than Open Source Bridge, an entirely volunteer-run event that focuses on what it takes to be a good open source citizen.

Yes, you read that right. It’s entirely volunteer run. So if you’ve got a few extra cycles and have an interest in open source, I highly suggest you swing by NedSpace Old Town to help the Open Source Bridge folks plan Open Source Bridge 2010, tonight. Read More

Funding Universe hosts Portland CrowdPitch at NedSpace Old Town, tomorrow

That’s why I think you should swing by NedSpace Old Town tomorrow at lunch for the Funding Universe Portland CrowdPitch.

Pitching makes perfect. Or practicing pitching makes perfect. Or pitching perfectly… Um. Whatever the case, if you’re a startup you can always use more practice pitching. And there’s no better place to practice that pitch than in front of a crowd—or being part of the crowd watching someone else pitch.

That’s why I think you should swing by NedSpace Old Town tomorrow at lunch for the Funding Universe Portland CrowdPitch. Read More

NedSpace partnership with OEN, SAO, and TechAmerica: A glimmer of things to come?

NedSpace is continuing that momentum, striking up a partnership with industry organizations OEN, SAO, and TechAmerica.

Last summer, many people rejoiced in the fact that the City of Portland had chosen to adopt the Portland Economic Development Strategy. Those of us around here were especially happy that a portion of that Strategy contained the recognition of coworking spaces as a crucial and viable part of Portland’s startup culture.

Among those named in the Strategy, was none other than relative newcomer NedSpace, a coworking space that developed a rapid—and perhaps even rabid—following with the startup crowd. Now, true to form, NedSpace is continuing that momentum, striking up a partnership with industry organizations OEN, SAO, and TechAmerica. Read More
