Portland entrepreneurs are makers at heart. We make things, and we make things happen. Pitchlandia is Portland’s own crowd-crafted pitch event.

What types of startups can be part of Pitchlandia?

The type that has a good idea. Pitchlandia is open to entrepreneurs in different industries, with very early stage ideas who are able to work fulltime for three months to build their startup.. Actually, being different is a good thing in our book.

How can my startup be a part of this?

When we announce that we’re accepting applications, apply with our online application and we’ll get back to you.
