PDX Startup Crawl


In years past, Portland’s MusicFest NW has been compared to a music-only version of SXSW. This year, that changes thanks to the Portland Digital eXperience (PDX).

The Portland Digital eXperience was organized by Rick Turcozy of Silicon Florist. This new wing of MusicFest NW fulfills a tech component of the festival that was previously missing, with sessions planned that spotlight and target tech, startup, and creative talent in the Portland area. The anticipation and expectations for the event have been high, with coverage in a variety of national publications from Fortune to GigaOm.

The Portland Digital eXperience kicks off with a Startup Crawl on Thursday, September 6, the event’s opening night. The goal? Introducing Portland’s tech and startup scene to the world. Upstart Labs is one of the registered startup stops, and we’ve ordered two extra kegs to get the party started. We hope you’ll stop by. We’d love to show you our new office, introduce you to our awesome team, and pour you a pint.

Hope to see you on Thursday!
