Still virtual: Portland Lunch 2.0 is Wednesday and Founders Live Portland is Thursday

While it appears we’re edging ever closer to another lockdown, I remain hopeful that we continue to build and connect community regardless of what the future might hold. So if you’re interested in connecting with folks in the Portland startup community in a virtual environment, there are two events this week designed to do just that.

New to Portland? Looking to reconnect with folks? Portland Lunch 2.0 can help

Portland has never been terribly good at networking events. It’s just the way things are. But with the influx of folks who have arrived in town during the pandemic and the community members who are looking to re-engage with the startup community as the pandemic subsides, it seems like we should at least try to provide more opportunities for random collisions to happen. That’s why we’re working to reboot Portland Lunch 2.0.

Looking to connect with the Portland startup community?

For all the difficulties of the pandemic, finding ways to connect with other humans — especially if you’ve recently relocated — has been among the most difficult. What’s more, for folks who are juggling jobs, family, and other areas of responsibility, evening networking events can be all but inaccessible — whether it’s a pandemic or not. That’s why I’ve been actively working to reboot Portland Lunch 2.0, a simple community networking event that occurs during the lunch hour.

REMINDER: Portland Lunch 2.0 is Tuesday, May 25

Portland was always a little light on the general networking events. And the pandemic only made that more pronounced. Which is why I’m hoping that a little resurgence of Portland Lunch 2.0 — the long running lunchtime networking event for the Portland startup community — can help make connections as we work toward recovery. And the next one is happening tomorrow, Tuesday, May 25, 2021.

Another chance to meet folks in the Portland startup community

Not everyone — even in this all Zoom all of the time world — has the wherewithal to attend happy hours and evening events. Other commitments, family time, just not working… all take precedence. Which is why I’ve always liked Portland Lunch 2.0. Because it’s at a time where a broader group of folks are able to join and meet one another.

REMINDER: Virtual Portland Lunch 2.0, this Thursday

While the regularity of Portland Lunch 2.0 isn’t what it used to be, I’m hoping that the opportunity to connect with other folks in the Portland startup community is still a compelling reason to gather. That’s why I put another Portland Lunch 2.0 on the calendar for this week.

Interested in grabbing a super socially distanced lunch with the Portland startup community…?

Maybe it’s the change in the weather. Maybe it’s hearing from more and more folks who have been vaccinated. Maybe it’s the fact that we’ve been in this “demented and sad… but social” event construct for more than a year at this point. Whatever the case, it seems like it might be a good time to gather the community for a good old fashioned — yet virtual — Portland Lunch 2.0.

A virtual Portland Lunch 2.0 to make some real Portland startup community connections

While the pandemic has caused any number of hardships and hassles for folks, there are a handful of things that have become a bit easier in this fully remote world. Like throwing together virtual versions of events that often require far more logistics to pull off in person. With that in mind — and with so many folks expressing feelings of disconnectedness — I thought it might be a good idea to revive Portland Lunch 2.0 one more time before the end of the year.

How to Portland Lunch 2.0

While it used to be common knowledge around these parts, Portland Lunch 2.0 seems to have become a bit of an enigma. I can tell, because every time I start talking about it, folks are like “How do we even do a Portland Lunch 2.0?” Fair question. Let’s see if we can clear some of this up. For both attendees and hosts.
