Format of the Startup Sessions:
Each startup session will have a topic and an area expert providing key insights and knowledge regarding the topic in a 20-30 minute seminar format. Afterwards, the attendees will break into working sessions to engage with the topic as it relates to them.
All seminars will be video captured and live streamed on CoMotion’s YouTube Channel. Light refreshments will be served. These sessions are open to the public and you do not have to be currently affiliated with UW or a startup to join.
We hope to see you there!
