We are pleased to welcome PIE back as a #PDXSW sponsor! The Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE) is a partnership among leading brands, technology innovators, and Wieden+Kennedy — the largest privately held advertising and communications company in the world. PIE is a hub for community, entrepreneurship, and creative thinking that in a short time has become an important part of Portland startup tech scene.
PIE is currently working with its second accelerator class of startups, which were showcased at its recent PIE Demo Day on October 5th. Since PIE’s inception it has helped host, accelerate and mentor a number of startups. In it’s first 18 months, three of PIE’s companies were funded, two were acquired and one published a book on launching startups. Their first formal accelerator class garnered more than 13 million in funding. PIE has also hosted a number of events for tech-related and other affiliated organizations.
Thank you PIE for your generous support of #PDXSW!
