Trending: Amazon claps back at Elizabeth Warren over claims of anti-competitive behavior

Yo, Portland peeps: Join us next week as we travel south to host an after party at one of Portland’s biggest tech events, the PDX Tech Crawl.

Next Thursday, Sept. 7, the eighth annual PDX Tech Crawl will feature several local startups that open their offices to attendees who can eat and drink their way from building to building, learning about each company and meeting employees. It’s a free-for-all walking open house tour that gives people a taste of all the cool startups growing up in Portland.

The event culminates with an after party at On Deck Sports Bar in the Pearl District that we’re hosting for the fourth year. It’s always a fun time hanging out with our Pacific Northwest buds, chatting about the latest tech innovations in the region and how the Sounders are ahead of the Timbers in the MLS standings.

Last year, more than 3,000 people showed up for the event. It’s a great way to get a pulse for Portland’s bustling tech and startup scene in a city where people seem to enjoy building companies.

“If you’re looking for a job working at a Portland tech company or want to find out more about a tech startup, then this is an event not to be missed,” said Kevin Long, co-founder of The Dyrt and Tech Crawl organizer.

The Tech Crawl will kick off from the WeWork Custom House at 5:30 p.m. and wrap up with an after party at On Deck Sports Bar hosted by GeekWire. You can buy tickets for $5 and RSVP here.

We’ll also be raffling off tickets to our big GeekWire Summit event at the after party on Sept. 7, so be sure to join us. If your company is interested in hosting a stop on the crawl, apply here. Learn more about the PDX Tech Crawl here. Thanks to OpenGov for sponsoring the after party.
