this is a cross-post from Continuous Web (Eugene) so go RSVP over there (or just show up).
Gavin Gillas, local business development specialist and startup enthusiast, recently found himself on a Startup Weekend mission, of sorts. After participating in a couple of SW events in other areas, he decided to bring it home, and host the first Eugene Startup Weekend this past October. It was quite an undertaking, and also quite a success.
Along with asking Gavin to assist with some regional events, SW is taking Gavin to Brazil. He is learning a lot about the SW mission, and has an inside view into what's next... as in SWNext.
Gavin would like to share his experiences with the community, talk about what he learned, and discuss what it would take to have future Eugene events (read: your support).
Come participate in a discussion about the future of our Eugene web startup community, learn about some of the free and accessible resources that we have at our fingertips, and meet some of the people that are helping to bring our local tech community into focus.
