Hey davidw, definitely a fair question. Truth is we actually started here and really want to grow here because we love the area. Thanks for your comment!

Cool - drop me an email if you're ever up in Bend - there's a nascent startup industry here which is pretty cool.

Love Bend! We've sponsored Ruby on Ales the last 2 years. We love that event and that area (Bend is one of my personal favorite places to go in the state). I'll look you up next time around!

What's the industry looking like in Bend? Are startups there focused on any particular markets? In Portland most smaller companies and startups are outside of tech (artisanal goods, food, etc)

There are a few companies here (even one that posted in this thread) that do tech, and a few VC's with one foot here and another in the Bay Area. There's also a decent outdoor sector, as you can imagine.
