How to meet
Being an entrepreneur
          =
 Nonstop networking
So, if you’re not up for networking,
                stop now.
 Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.
In fact, do not collect any money. Ever.
PIE is designed to mediate and
facilitate collaboration. That means,
   we offer up connections with
 incredible people with whom we
            have built trust.
Remember, you’re trading on our
social capital. And if you fuck it up, you
 not only burn your bridges, you burn
ours. Meaning, you burn opportunities
 for every startup that enters PIE from
             here forward.
You’re too never too busy to meet.
You’re never too busy to prepare.
         You never know
  where serendipity will occur.
I average 20 meetings a week.
~20 meetings x ~20 min prep
             =
 ~One work day/week prep
Most meetings? 20 minutes
So. How do you meet?
Every meeting. Every guest speaker.
        Every encounter.
       Requires homework.
Google, motherfucker, do you use it?
Stalk social like its your job.
        Because it is.
Use your peers.
Portland is a small town.
What do you want?
What can you give?
Before they get back to work an
email should be in their inbox.
Let’s get started.
