What's the agenda at the 2012 unConference?
Presentation topics are set by attendees during the first hour of the conference, so the agenda is up to YOU. Attendees are invited to deliver a 5 minute talk (no slides) in one of these three tracks:
- Lessons Learned
- New Ventures
That's followed by 5 minutes for discussion. Slots fill up every year, so arrive early if you intend to present! Whether it's sage advice or a funny& irreverent tale, we want your take. Everyone's encouraged to jump in.
FoundersPad Speed Pitch Competition
FoundersPad, the startup accelerator in Bend, works with a select few companies for an intense 12-week bootcamp on Lean Startup Principles, Customer Development, and - you guessed it - pitching for investment funds. FoundersPad companies past and present will pitch their hearts out to convince the crowd that they deserve the coveted "Wild Card" spot to pitch in the Concept Stage Competition at BVC the next day. The pitches are fast, the passion is high and it all comes down to your vote - this is an event you don't want to miss!
How about a flowing keg of great local beer, tours of Central Oregon's newest datacenter, cocktails made with local spirits, tasty treats from local foodies, a huge expo with information about local tech user groups and other community-minded organizations, the 10 minute talks...and YOU.
Created three years ago by the local Tech Alliance and its co-working space, TechSpaceBend, the unConference gives a nod to Central Oregon's incredibly talented techies - both those who have a gig with a local shop, and many more who've found their telecommuting heaven right here in the High Desert.
See you there.
