Andy Baio – on Portland and DIY Startup Culture
Andy Baio, one of Portland’s greatest tech assets–and founder of Upcoming, XOXO Festival, he helped build Kickstarter, and more–was interviewed recently for a film series called Early Stage. In it, he discusses the different parts of Portland that make it unique, and how DIY culture permeates everything from music, food, to startups.
Listen as he describes the food cart scene as the ultimate in Tiny Startups… It’s pretty much spot on in terms of arguments against always needing VC funding and only pushing for the biggest new thing.
Sometimes, small is the perfect size.
Tiny Startup Camp is a two-day event that helps people learn how to create and run Tiny Startups.
