Advertising firm Wieden+Kennedy is launching a technology-oriented business incubator at its Pearl District offices, joining some of its most prominent clients and some of the city’s best-known technologists.

The venture, the Portland Incubator Experiment, began informally two years ago in vacant space in W+K’s offices. It helped spawn a handful of tech startups.
