Strange times indeed. A year ago, we all gathered in person to celebrate the 2019 class of PIE startups. Today, that seems like decades ago as we all grapple with the impact of the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
But the show, especially for startups, very much must find a way to go on. And that’s why PIE Demo Day 2020 is working to bring you a glimmer of optimism and hope in these uncertain times. By having our traditional PIE Demo Day as a fully virtual event.
PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP IN PERSON. THERE IS NO LIVE EVENT.
If this is your first chance to experience a PIE Demo Day, we’re glad to have you. Unlike other demo days, we’re focused on the people and their journeys. Not so much on fundraising. Or demos for that matter.
This year as in years past, PIE Demo Day will be a time of celebration, where we bring the Portland startup community together to hear from a bunch of amazing founders in our program. They’ll take the (virtual) stage to share details about the companies they’re building. And as always, members of the audience, like you, can eagerly await the opportunity to learn more about how you can help.
Sound good? Cool. Here’s how you can participate:
- Follow PIE on Twitter
- Subscribe to PIE on YouTube
- Please enable notifications on YouTube so you get a ping when we upload videos
On March 19, 2020, at 2:00PM Pacific Time, we’ll push all of the videos live and begin live tweeting demo day, with the PIE Twitter account acting as a virtual emcee.
Please tune in, like, retweet, and support the companies in this cohort. In times like these, all we have is community. And we’re so so glad that we’re part of yours.
P.S. Wash your hands.
