What do Intel Social Scientist Genevieve Bell, Mike "Dollar Shave Club" Dubin, Nike chief technical officer Chris Satchell, Portland start-up founders Mara Zepeda, Nat Parker and Sam Blackman, tech journalist Kara Swisher, Vox guru Trei Brundrett and Drone master Tad McGeer have in common? 

They all will be speaking, along with a number of other luminaries of the start-up and tech scene, at TechfestNW, the sister event to MusicfestNW that will be taking place this August.

Now in its third year, TechfestNW has booked some of the best speakers on the planet. There will also be a talent and recruitment fair, a Venture Capital meet-up and abundant networking opportunities.

And parties.

Tickets for the event, which takes place at OMSI, went on sale last week. Seats are limited.
