Esri R&D Center Office Warming and Open House Party! Wed, May 7th, 2014 from 5-8pm

New Esri R&D Center Portland Office!

Come Celebrate our new Office!

After Portland startup Geoloqi joined Esri in 2012, our office has grown from 6 to 20 people and our current space didn’t fit everyone! This year, we found an awesome new space downtown and moved into a new, permanent location. Now that we’re all settled into our new space, we’d love to invite you to join us in celebrating growth, community and all things geo! We’ll have Legos, toys, and even a custom-built Settler’s of Catan board for you to play! Feel free to bring other board games if you’d like.


RSVP on EventBrite so we can make sure we have enough drinks and light snacks (gluten free) for everyone! We are using Eventbrite to track RSVPs, if you know you are coming please reserve a ticket!
In addition to celebrating Esri R&D Center Portland’s new office, we will be celebrating Geoloqi’s 4th year anniversary, as well as both my and Patrick Arlt’s birthday! So many celebrations!

We have all of you to thank for helping us get where we are today. Special thanks to TiE, PIE, PSF, PDC, and many other organizations for funding us, providing mentorship and being patient with our crazy vision this entire time. It’s been 4 years since Geoloqi started, and almost 2 since we’ve been a part of Esri!
