Share Webinar: Seattle bets on the Startup Economy

Event Details

The City of Seattle, WA has decided to invest in its startup community, after a technology task force recommended that more investment be made by the City, the Seattle Startup Initiative was created and a "Startup Liaison" position was created. Rebecca Lovell, the person appointed to that position works each day to connect startups in Seattle to resources that can help them succeed. The intiative has four main strategies to help startups: events, resources, jobs and a blog. They curate all the resources, job opportunities, tips and tricks for startups to succeed in their city. 

The importance of this initiative is best explained by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray: "A key part of supporting Seattle’s growing economy is to make strategic investments in our competitive industry sectors, from technology to manufacturing. Nurturing our startups and helping innovative entrepreneurs expand in our city will allow our technology sector to continue to grow and support more jobs."
