Event Description How does the gaming and tech scene in Eugene effect what happens in Portland? How can Portland companies tap into the momentum in Bend? Is Roseburg the next entrepreneurial hub in the state? How can PDX startups connect more to the Gorge? Oregon is a big state -- this we know. But what sometimes gets lost is how connected we all are.  Join Built Oregon as we host a panel discussion on  the state of entrepreneurship around Oregon during Startup Week PDX.  We will look to discuss how collaboration and awareness of what is happening in other regions can effect what happens in Portland, and vice versa.  Hot Lips Pizza will be served, and there will be a cash bar for beer, wine and soda Event Schedule: 4:00PM - 4:30PM  Reception Networking 4:30PM - 5:30PM  Panel Discussion and Audience Questions 5:30PM - 6:00PM  More Networking The Panel Moderator
