The first question people ask when you arrive in Central Oregon is “what do you do?” because it’s somewhat of a coup to figure out how to live in this singularly beautiful, active, and just urban enough town. Bend is well on it’s way to becoming a mecca for independent workers and startups because many of the people who work here, or chose to start their businesses here, could go anywhere.
Now because of BendTECH, we no longer need to languish at home with the dishes in the sink, in a noisy coffee shop, or isolated in boring executive suites. There’s a small army of successful independent professionals in this town, and coworking is an emerging way to have better work/life boundaries and community. You get all the perks of working with people, with the freedom of working on your terms.
