PIE: What makes a good PIE company?

You may have listened to the podcast we did with Rick Turoczy who is part of the Portland Incubator Experiment also known as “PIE” back in August 2011. Well, the recent PIE class had their “demo day” back on January 17, 2012 and all of their presentations are now available for you to watch.

Before you watch these videos I wanted to let you know that applications for the next PIE class are now open and will close on February 24, 2012.

Here are the links to the 8 class graduates videos in alphabetical order:









Rick will be joining us once again for a Taking Notes podcast to talk more about PIE and about all the great things the last class came up with.
