Seattle Beta is Seattle's premier startup competition, combining live demos, interactive competition, and open socializing.
More than 300 people attend: founders, hackers, students, investors, designers, visionaries, media professionals, and more.
There are no structured talks or presentations — we offer pitches and pints without the PowerPoint. Instead, meet amazing people, vote on your favorite startups, and dive deep into conversation.
Seattle Beta is produced by Sarah Novotny.
