Future tech, part of this nutritious Portland Business Journal Power Breakfast

It’s no secret that Portland likes its shiny new technology. We’re among the earliest of adopters and the most curious of hobbyists with all sorts of newfangled stuff.

Call it an incubator. Call it an accelerator. Call it whatever you want. But you might be calling it your new job.

While it’s always nice to see the significant and measurable economic impact accelerators have for the startups they support, I’m equally pleased to see these startup resources growing, themselves. So when they’re hiring, that’s a really good thing.

Fine. I’ll admit it. I love demo days. If only because I know how much awful turmoil, stress, and ad nauseam pitch practice go into the effort. And all of those hours and days and weeks of effort culminate in a few brief moments of glory on stage—where amazing founders get the chance to reveal their startups to the world. It really is amazing. So forgive me, if I spend a few minutes highlighting the startups that took the stage for Story Board Demo Day. Read More

Plot twist: Your procrastination paid off. Oregon Story Board accelerator applications extended until May 17.

Well, would you look at that. You waited. And you waited. And you waited. You thought about it. You almost started it. And then you got sidetracked. Or you got timid. Why should I apply? Is my idea good enough? What if I’m not what they’re looking for? So you put it off. With the hopes that you would—oopie—miss the application period all together. Nice try. Oregon Story Board applications have been extended until May 17, 2015. Read More
