It's Portland Startup Week (http://portland.startupweek.co)! What better time to get the startup community together?
That's why Built Oregon (http://builtoregon.com/), PIE (http://piepdx.com/), and Silicon Florist (http://siliconflorist.com/) is using Startup Week as an opportunity to kick off a new year of Community Hour[s], our ongoing gatherings for all of the people who make up the entrepreneurial fabric of our community. We'll also be joined by our friends Cascade Angels (http://cascadeangels.com/). There is no agenda, panel, or discussion. It’s a time to relax and network with old friends and make new connections with your peers and across industries.
As much as we all love technology, we realize that community relationships are built through personal connections and shared stories. So we hope you’ll join us for a few minutes — or a couple of hours.
Portland Startup Week is all about collaborating. So rather than make folks choose between events, we've combined this event with the XXcelerate Fund Meet 'n' Greet at Vacasa (https://portlandstartupweek2017.sched.com/event/9YD7/xxcelerate-fund-meet-n-greet-happy-hour). (Start time is now 5:30PM, as well.)
See you there!
