BendTECH Coworking presents the first-annual Startup Resource Fair, scheduled for Wednesday, May 24 at the 1001 Tech Center. This fun-filled event puts all the resources you need to start or grow a business in one location.
The fair features two dozen exhibitors, including:
- Venture Capital, Angel Funds and Banks
- Business/Founder Mentor Groups
- Small Business Assistance Programs
- Core Professional Services
- Educational Organizations and Resources
“The goal is to give anyone who has thought about starting a business – as well as those who have already launched one – the opportunity to ask important questions to topic experts and connect with all the resources Bend has to offer them,” says Kelly Kearsley, BendTECH board member.
Each exhibitor will have a table, and attendees can walk the fair, meet and talk with whichever exhibitors they’d like. In addition, the event will include short, informal presentations – Free Advice – from select exhibitors, offering up a quick bit of their expertise.
The fair will also feature founders and experienced entrepreneurs inside the BendTECH coworking space. Identified by “Ask a Founder” signage, attendees can tour the coworking space and glean advice from resident founders who have already started their businesses.
Admission is free, and every attendee receives a free drink (beer or wine). The Startup Resource Fair is made possible by these organizations, which provide endless support for Central Oregon entrepreneurs:
- The 1001 Tech Space
- The Bend Chamber of Commerce
- Summit Bank
- Karnopp Peterson
- PayneWest Insurance
- BendBroadband Business
