Incubators. That word seems to be all the rage right now, but what really happens within these start up incubators? Do they help companies become successful or at least get over certain challenges? What type of companies and people find the incubator experience to be a positive? Are there downfalls to going through the experience?

Come to OEN's February PubTalk and hear from the companies that have just completed the local incubator sessions at PIE (http://www.piepdx.com), OTBC (http://otbc.org) and the Portland Seed Fund (http://portlandseedfund.com). It is sure to be an engaging evening filled with Q&A with the panelists.
