It’s almost show time!  We’re getting ready to kick off the GeekWire Awards, with more than 750 attendees joining us here at the EMP Museum in Seattle to celebrate the top startups, technologies and hardest-working geeks in the Pacific Northwest.


We had to close off registration this week when we reached capacity, and we know many of you weren’t able to make it in, so as a special surprise we’re pleased to present this live stream from the main stage, courtesy of the team at Seattle’s Bootstrapper Studios.

The event kicks off at 6:45 p.m. with opening remarks and a keynote address by Chris DeVore, followed by the presentation of awards in 14 categories.

A big thanks to all of our sponsors, including title sponsor Wave Business Solutions for making this event possible: DoubleDown InteractiveSEOmozExsilio Solutions, category sponsors FilterFresh Consulting, Kibble & Prentice, Seattle Children’s Research Institute, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & RosatiFlinn Ferguson Corporate Real EstateUK Trade & InvestmentAppatureHasOffersBarokas PRSummit Group SolutionsKnollIntellectual Ventures and supporting sponsors Killer InfographicsBootstrapper Studios, and Babson F.W.
