Coffee with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, Presented by Coffee with Co-Founders and WeWork Labs
November 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join Seattle Coffee with Co-Founders and WeWork Labs for a fireside that will feature a very special guest: Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.
While we’ll learn more about how Mayor Durkan plans to engage with Seattle’s innovation economy, we want to turn the conversation on its head. Instead of just asking the City how it can help Seattle’s startups, we want to find out how Seattle’s startups can help the City tackle some of our greatest, shared challenges.
The conversation will be moderated by Labs member and Co-Founder + Managing Partner at Flying Fish Partners, Heather Redman. The format will be a fireside chat, followed by brief Q+A with the audience. We hope all will leave feeling inspired, more civically minded, and empowered to ensure that Seattle’s innovation ecosystem plays an important and thoughtful role in building an even brighter, more inclusive, and growing Puget Sound region for all.
Our WeWork Labs-hosted conversation – free and open to the public – will be happening in conjunction with Female Founders Alliance’s Access Seattle, a daylong event with investors, media, advisors, and entrepreneurs to help women and non-binary startup leaders succeed. While this conversation with Mayor Durkan is free and open to all, you can hear from more amazing speakers and participate in great programming by registering for Access at http://bit.ly/access-19-seattle.
