Are you thinking about joining the startup ranks? Or just curious what it’s like to be an entrepreneur?
Join us Tuesday evening from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Museum of History & Industry in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood for Startup Stories with the Seattle 10, an in-depth discussion about the future of startups in the Pacific Northwest.
University of Washington history professor Margaret O’Mara — author of Cities of Knowledge: Cold War Science and the Search for the Next Silicon Valley — will set the stage with some opening remarks about Seattle’s tech industry.
That will be a followed by a panel discussion, featuring three past honorees from the Seattle 10 program, a partnership between GeekWire and MOHAI which for the past four years has recognized up-and-coming startups in the region.
Joining us on stage on Tuesday night will be M3 Biotechnology CEO Leen Kawas; Remitly CEO Matt Oppenheimer; and Textio CEO Kieran Snyder. We’ll discuss the ins and outs of the startup landscape in Seattle, and talk about ways that the region can do better in fostering entrepreneurship.
