What’s better than interesting new startups moving to Portland? When those startups join forces to provide perks that could potentially benefit even more Portland startups, that’s what. Duh. And that’s why I’m psyched to see two recent Portland transplants—inDinero and WeWork—doing just that. Read More
Portland startups are known for being a bit humble. But one Portland startup has been taking that to extremes, quietly building up an impressive list of customers and partners. Now, they’re ready to share a little of that progress. Today, Vadio announced their partnership with Vevo, one of the largest licensed collections of music videos on the Web. Read More
Urban Airship is already leading the field for push notifications—those little messages that apps on smart phones can send you. But their latest deal has them stepping into the enterprise market in a big way.

If there’s one Portland startup that’s quietly having a substantial impact on the music scene, it’s Rumblefish. You might not hear much about them. But when you do, it’s usually something big.
Today is no different. You see, Rumblefish has just signed a deal with APM Music, a joint venture of EMI Music Publishing and Universal Music Publishing, the world’s largest production music library. That means, your YouTube video can have the same soundtrack as Hollywood productions. Read More
One of my favorite quiet little engine that could startups here in town is Iterasi. They don’t make a lot of noise. But when they do? It’s a big boom. And apparently, they’re not so quiet anymore.
In October, Iterasi announced a big partnership with NTIS. Now, it’s another month and another gigantic announcement. On the last day of November, Iterasi has announced that they’ve signed a partnership with LexisNexis Reed Technology Web Archiving Services. Read More
[HTML1]One of my favorite, successful “That’s a Portland company?” blogs is Digital Trends. It’s a tech heavy publication that covers all the comings and goings in the consumer tech space. From home theaters to mobile computing to games, they do their best to cover it all.
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
As much as I love the startup tech community here in town, I love it even more when I see the community doing things for the greater good. One of those Silicon Forest startups that manages to accomplish this on a regular basis is Portland-based Cooking Up A Story.
For those who may not be familiar with SARE, it provides critical funding grants to farmers, researchers, and agricultural educators to promote farming systems that are ecologically sound, and benefit all parties involved, including (of course) the farmers, eaters, and the local communities. Over the course of their 21 year history, they have come to the aid of countless farmers, and have provided the kind of assistance that has helped farmers to survive, sometimes by providing the means and the knowledge to branch into new production and marketing avenues for generating additional income and long-term growth.
The new partnership will help Cooking Up A Story expand their video offering with more stories, more how-to videos, and more profiles of farmers whose practices have benefited from SARE grants and SARE research. What’s more, it will enable Cooking Up A Story to expand their reach to other regions.
