Meetup and Elevator Pitch
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Meetup and Elevator Pitch, 5-7 PM
Join hundreds of geeks, startups, and members of the tech community for our fall meetup. The focus is casual conversation but with a bonus feature: a brief, live version of our popular Elevator Pitch. Three pre-selected startups will take the stage to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, and compete for bragging rights and prizes. Consider it the Pacific Northwest version of The Voice meets Shark Tank.
Our judges: Liz Pearce (CEO, LiquidPlanner), Dan Shapiro (CEO, Google Comparison) and Jonathan Sposato (Chairman, GeekWire)
Karaoke for a Cause, 7-9 PM
Join the tech community in one of its favorite past times: karaoke, while supporting Year Up Puget Sound as they strive to close the opportunity divide in our region and equip young adults to succeed in great jobs (many in tech!). Enjoy networking and entertainment, belt out your favorite tunes and/or bid on local tech celebrities to perform for you!
Tech celebs include: John Cook, Rand Fishkin, Dan Shapiro, Jonathan Sposato....and you!
