Smart-ups Expo, August 26 In Eugene

September 21, 2010

First-Ever Start-up Expo in Eugene, Oregon

The hottest/hippest super entrepreneurs showcased their cool innovations on Aug 26th

The Willamette Valley had a couple of glittering high tech events during the last week in August. The first was held in Eugene on Thursday and introduced the Smart-ups event to the City of Ducks.

On Friday, ONAMI (Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute) & MBI (Microproducts Breakthrough Institute) held an open house to celebrate the completion of a major expansion project. The event was held at the main labs of ONAMI & MBI on the HP Campus in Corvallis, Beaver Town.

I was able to go to both events and got to test drive the Arcimotor electric vehicle (EV) in  Eugene and mingle with small world celebrities in Corvallis. I brought back some video and news and the next few post cover these splendid end of  summer events.

First Smart-ups…
