How do you throw a birthday party for a well-known startup accelerator in Portland? If you’re the Portland Incubator Experiment, you do it in a new workspace and invite all of your friends and startups both past and present. For me, it was another chance at some startup photography capturing some great folks in the Portland scene, and fitting since I photographed the PIE kickoff event along with all of their demo days.
You invite Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who drops by to say a few words about Portland’s startup scene, and of course PIE General Manager Rick Turoczy has some remarks as well.
You hold the event in a cool new space – The Glass Lab – and find that it provides plenty of room for interesting conversations.
You have some cool swag for folks to play with, making for some interesting opportunities for an event photographer.
You have the event catered with some great food including Fabo’s Tacos. People are happy, they have great conversations, business connections are made, and the event photographer walks away happy.
