Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) October 31, 2014
Edgelink is pleased to announce that we will be a returning gold sponsor for Portland Startup Weekend, taking place November 14 – 16, 2014. PSU Business Accelerator, Oregon’s leading technology incubator and the home to more than 30 promising technology and science startups, will host the event.
Portland Startup Weekend seeks to provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to pitch ideas to gain funding and teammates to transform their concept into a reality. Participants get 60 seconds to pitch an idea on Friday night and if they are chosen to continue in the competition, they will have a working prototype in order by Sunday night, 54 hours later. Investors and sponsors contribute ideas, hosting, tools and plenty of feedback throughout the process. PSU Business Accelerator is an ideal location, providing office and lab space plus a menu of services designed with the fast-growing startup's needs in mind. This highly energetic and innovative event seeks to launch teams and startups in one weekend.
