Heads up: you may have more than your taxes to turn in by April 15. That’s also the deadline for applications to the Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE).
The startup accelerator is a collaboration of people and organizations that provide space, funding and guidance to a group of aspiring businesses over a three month period. PIE has a proven track record with alumni like Urban Airship and Simple.
Here’s how PIE describes itself:
We’ll give you cash and office space to spend three months with us in beautiful Portland, Oregon. You and other promising co-founders will learn from our startups-in-residence, successful alumni, Wieden+Kennedy, and our mentor network. Not to mention we'll connect you with thought leaders from some of the world’s most successful brands.
What's more, you’ll meet some of the most thoughtful investors in the startup scene and gain valuable exposure to Portland’s thriving mobile and open source development communities.
The Portland Incubator Experiment starts accepting applications next week and runs the program from July to October. Good luck!
