What's the agenda at the 2014 unConference?
Unconference Attendees.jpegPresentation this year are going to be concept-stage companies competing for a wild-card entry into the Bend Venture Conference. These pitches will be 3 minutes each (no slides) with 5 minutes of discussion:

2:00 - 2:30: Welcome Networking
2:30 - 3:30: BVC WildCard Pitches - Round 1
3:45 - 4:45: BVC WildCard Pitches - Round 2
5:00: End of Voting & Winner Announcement

UnConference Concept Pitch Competition

The highlight of the evening is the pitch competition. It’s an open opportunity for anyone (seriously anyone) to pitch their business and vie for a wildcard spot in the BVC concept stage competition the next day. The unConference attendees will vote to decide which presenter moves on. The pitches are fast, the passion is high, the reward is $10,000 and it all comes down to your vote - this is an event you don't want to miss!

What else?

Silipint Bend Ale Trail.jpgHow about a flowing keg of great local beer, a huge expo with information about local tech user groups and other community-minded organizations, the Concept Stage Pitches... and YOU.

Created four 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.
