One of the things I love about Portland is that—in addition to all of the amazing startups—there are startups who work to help other startups. Sometimes they’re providing training. Sometimes they’re accelerators. And sometimes they’re content creators. Like the Portland Radio Project.

And now it’s inspired others to start a new video interview show. Meet Output PDX. Read More
One of the things I most love about Portland is that we’ve got more unassuming expertise per capita than any town on earth. Tons of super talented people. But you’d never know it. Because they keep a low profile. So whenever one of them raises that profile a bit? I’m going to celebrate that. Like when Ken Westin decides to start a podcast on encryption. Read More
Saturday is usually a slow news day in the Portland startup scene. Usually. But today was different. There was big news. Of another acquisition. But this time, it’s someone else acquiring a Portland company.
