Why Seattle Startup Week Matters?
We’re counting down to less than two weeks to Nov 14-18 Seattle Startup Week (#SSW2016) . This year it looks like we will have over 150 events over week and expect to see significant growth from our 3,800 unique attendees last year. What really matter is you!
This event is Seattle’s largest event for startups every year – and it’s FREE – Celebrating what’s happening in the Seattle Startup Ecosystem. We’ll kick things off with an amazing Opening Party sponsored by Chase Ink Card.
The goal of the event is to help local startups and founders learn and experience the resources in the NW that are available to them to help launch and grow their company here in our city. If you’ve been following along, Seattle is a great place to launch a company. But if you’re new to startups it can be difficult to navigate your way around the various Meetups and events for what you need.
