Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE), a uniquely Portland celebration of creativity and entrepreneurship, announced they are accepting applications for a new class. PIE, started in 2009, is a collaboration of Weiden + Kennedy and other denizens of the PDX tech community to help promising startups to get on their feet and run. This is a golden ticket opportunity that has seen the launching of many promising tech startups in Portland. Word is getting out – Over half of the applications seen previously have come from outside Oregon. The project’s success is hinged on its leverage of Portland’s vibrant creative and technical communities.
