Limited Capacity filling up

You have heard representatives of so many accelerators, incubators, and other programs talk about what they offer and why they might be the best choice for you. But what about the experience from the students point of view? This panel isn’t from the eyes of the people that built these programs but through the perspective of the actual entrepreneur who is in the trenches. These companies have been through local programs and are here to give you biggest takeaways and tell their story of the impact the organization has had in their successes, as well as some of the changes they would make in the process.  Come check out the panel as they take you through the ups and downs of being an early stage start-up in the Seattle market.

Our panel showcases a member from Techstars, Keiretsu, Doxxa Incubator, and Spring and a winner of Founder’s Live. Moderated by Peter Chee, creator of the EO Accelerator in Seattle, CEO of thinkspace and advisory board member of SXSW.

BONUS: We will have some representatives from various Seattle organizations showcased with booths at the event! Come network for the first hour and learn more about what they are all about!
