Bend’s tech companies have pooled their resources to be one of two primary sponsors of the upcoming Bend Livability Project — a four-day event scheduled for this weekend (June 2 through June 5) that is equal parts town hall meeting, community party and one giant brainstorm.
More startups. More funding. More fun. Bend Outdoor Worx, Central Oregon’s outdoor industry accelerator, plans to host an outdoor product venture event to help kick off the Bend Venture Conference.
The Central Oregon Food Cluster continues to offer seriously interesting events for our local food products companies. Tomorrow evening (Wed. 5/25) the topic is food safety and the featured company is Jem Raw Organics, which crafts delicious, raw nut butters like hazelnut raw cacao and cashew cardamom.
If you love waiting in lines for hours for things, then I’ve got some bad news for you: Bend-based Flybook recently debuted its new Smart Ticket technology, which aims to create more efficient ticketing operations for adventure parks, rock gyms, zip line tours and the like. All that line time? Just gone. Now when are you going to look at Facebook?
The upcoming EDCO PubTalk (May 26th) is chock full of friends of the blog, or FOBs as I like to call them as of three minutes ago. The two companies pitching are none other than DohJe, founded by Amanda Krantz, and Zealios, co-founded by Austin Britts.
If you’re an entrepreneur building a business, then we have an awesome deal for you. Stages PDX — a two-day working conference for entrepreneurs — kicks off May 19 and 20, and StartupBend readers can receive 50% off their conference tickets.
Julie Harrelson, CEO of the Harrelson Group and manager of Cascade Angels, has a beloved penchant for taking selfies with entrepreneurs, investors and people of Oregon who support building a strong Oregon through entrepreneurialism. This is the first in a series of selfies + blogs about the amazing people she’s met in the last couple of years. #julieselfie
