The 2018 annual awards dinner for the Oregon Entrepreneurs Network carried on what has become almost an event norm: a video homage to pop culture with an Oregon entrepreneurial twist.
In 2015, the event showed a music video starring many of the city’s high-profile entrepreneurs singing that the dream of the startup is alive in Portland. Last year, the finalists performed “carpool karaoke.”
This year, event emcee Jessi Duley took on three legendary entrepreneurial stories in the style of the Comedy Central show “Drunk History.”
The video is below. Other, more serious videos, of the award finalists are available on the OEN website.
