OROR Kickoff: Pitchfest

1001 SE Morrison St
Portland, Oregon 97214, US (map)



Join us for a night of performances, presentations, and pitches from a kaleidoscopic cross-section of Portland's inventive, daring underbelly. Featuring some of the favorite projects from Research Club's 2014 year, delight all your senses with the creative output of projects founded and perfected here in Portland. And if you like what you see/taste/touch/hear, you'll have a chance to get involved. Pitchfest will be a series of lightning talks from local projects that are growing or hoping or just plain killin' it.
