Febuary 20th  9:00 AM-2:00 PM

The objective of these tech talks is to expand our knowledge in areas that can directly impact our day. We will share best practices and tools that help us take command of the data around us. Some meetings will be simple presentations and others may be labs where you get hands on experience.

The result should simplify our work, help us do more with less, allow us to delegate more, and enable us to better direct our IT resources to accomplish what matters to us. This is a monthly meeting at the Interject Office in Salmon Creek. We meet the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Each event has a special topic posted. Use the link, below, to reserve your spot on a date that works for you. Lunch is provided. Please let us know ahead of time if you have any special dietary. We are happy to accommodate.

Vancoffee: A Vantechy Track, Dec 26th

Designed for tech executives, but welcome to anyone, this meetup is a birds-of-a-feather discussion group for those who are looking to benefit from the shared experience of Vancouver’s tech community. Why so early? Because when you run a company or manage a team, your free time either happens before employees show up for work or at the end of the day (and the last thing you want to do after a day of meetings is entertain a group discussion).

Feel free to bring your breakfast and a mug; we will bring the coffee, creamer, and sugar.

AbSci Wins 2017 OEN Startup of the Year Award

The Startup Stage Category winner was Vancouver-based AbSci LLC. The company developed a way to use E. coli to develop protein-based drugs such as insulin. Using this technology these pharmaceuticals can be made at a much lower cost.

“AbSci was chosen because its leadership has demonstrated tremendous tenacity over the years, making real progress toward becoming a substantial employer and contributor to the biotech sector in Oregon," the judges said. "The company’s value proposition is extraordinary, and its team is remarkably cohesive, with breakthroughs to their product evolution coming from scientists working at many levels across their production process.”
