Hello! My friend Isaac and I were hanging out at BrainSilo (A HackerSpace here in Portland) over the weekend & we decided to mess around with printing a business card. Yah, it isn’t perfect – but we had a lot of fun doing it! He was teaching me a lot about the process, so I wanted to film it so hopefully someone else could learn a little bit as well :)
If you don’t know, Pitchlandia was this week here in Portland, OR! It was the world’s first crowd-funded & crowd-selected Startup Pitch event. I am always a sucker for Startup events in general – I always leave feeling energized with a new sense of purpose for ‘doing my own thing’. Which is a very addictive feeling! This event in particular sparked my interest because the audience, who helped fund the event, had control of who won and who took the money home. There were 20 pitches total (I show clips of some of my favorite highlights in the video below*), 10 pitches were Tech and 10 were tangible products, which was a nice change up. I think it is easy to get stuck in the ‘tech bubble’ in the Startup World, so it was very refreshing!
I am scared to share this with you – but I am going to do it anyway. I felt like I had something to say last night – so I filmed a video about it. I am not sure what else to say about it… I am pretty nervous to put this out there. For some reason, filming a video versus writing a blog post seems to be on another level of vulnerability for me. Fuck it, right? Here goes nothing… Hope you enjoy it!
