The 1001 Tech Center is having its official open house from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. The newly renovated building houses the BendTECH coworking space (that’s us!) as well as several companies including Pneuma33 Creative Agency, Five Talent and Seven Peaks Ventures.

You can tour the space, enjoy some appetizers and drinks and live music and probably even meet some cool people (though I’ll be there, pulling down the cool factor considerably with my excitement over free apps).

Do it!

The 1001 Tech Center is at 1001 SW Emkay, Bend. See you there!
