So I assume you have all been sitting on Schpilkas wondering when I would write another blog post and as luck would have it, today I am.
So where have I been and what have I been up to?
Well as I am sure you all know or assume my days have been filled with FreshBooks.com, Speaking all over the place (in the last few months I have been in Florida, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Saskatoon, New York, Portland and probably somewhere I can’t remember), acting as an advisor to an education program on Social Media and as if that wasn’t enough I have a couple new things to share.
Im pretty excited to announce that I was named as a mentor of PIE – Portland Incubator Experiment. The Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE) is a partnership among leading brands, technology innovators, and Wieden+Kennedy-the largest privately held adv
ertising and communications company in the world. It serves as a hub for community, entrepreneurship, and creative thinking.
There are a couple days left to submit an application for your company to join so get on that is you are interested because if you’re selected, you’ll get $18,000, office space, and mentorship from Google, Target, Coca-Cola, Nike, Wieden+Kennedy, and well, me.
So what are you waiting for? Please apply today.
Finally, as excited as I am about PIE (yes, I know how that sounds out of context) I am even more jazzed to be working with some friends to get Urbandig off the ground. Urbandig is handcrafted, by experts, “off the beaten path” city tours delivered delivered right to your phone. You’ll never have to wonder where the best corn dog, cougar den, or juke box are in a new city again!
I’ll be back in a few days with a thoughtful blog post but until then I hope you liked the update.
