Portland Lunch 2.0: Virtually
Online

There's no better time to reconnect with folks in the community with whom you've lost touch. And there's no better way to gather with a random smattering of your startup community peers than Portland Lunch 2.0. Even if it is virtually.

No agenda. No talks. Just (virtual) lunch with your community.
