Want to learn about the startup scene in Bend, meet local entrepreneurs, and enjoy a beer?

Our unConference is no ordinary event! It?s an interactive session where like-minded folks gather for a few hours of idea sharing and collaborative discussion.

We welcome anyone attending the Bend Venture Conference (or not) to stop by and take part. We have an open-garage setting which makes it easy to drop in for a few minutes or a few hours.

Who should come?

Anyone with the desire to listen or participate in conversations about business as it relates to online, mobile, software, digital media, cleantech, etc.

This means students, graduates, wannapreneurs, emerging entrepreneurs, developers, designers, sales & marketing experts, and anyone else who want to take part in an exciting, fruitful event at which you can learn something, build new valuable relationships, and have a beer or two!

Who?s hosting?

TechSpace unConference will be organised and hosted by the media mogul Lewis Howell and local entrepreneur James Gentes (Founder at The Social Business): they will be responsible for keeping the conversation lively and the beer flowing (thanks Silver Moon!)


Your time is your investment ? the unConference is FREE!


The TechSpace unConference will take place at the Old Cigar Building (906 NW Harriman St.), which is located across Harriman Street from the Blacksmith Restaurant and adjacent to Williams Allstate.
