One of the worst parts about networking are the individuals that use the events to pitch their products and services. We all know that is part of the deal when networking but it can be highly annoying. Because the focus of this site is on peer advice between small business owners, PortlandSmallBusiness.com is starting a series of weekly "No Pitch" coffee networking events around town. These are intended to be very informal meetings. You show up, order your coffee and you talk with other small business owners. I plan to alternate between coffee shops around inner Portland and if it gets too big, I'll find a bigger space.
