Portland, We Salute You! Portland Startup Week Recap

Entrepreneurs, developers, media and participants of Portland, thank you. Your city embraced the first Portland Startup Week like no other. Of all the Startup Weeks and Weekends I’ve participated in, this was the first that had live television coverage onsite and a constant stream of articles published for the general public as a whole – not just those involved in the tech and startup scene.
