Started.in Seattle is 1 year old!
It’s been a crazy year, folks. We’ve profiled 56 of the most amazing startups Seattle has to offer and we’re just getting started (seriously, tell your friends: seattle.started.in/apply/)!
I (Stephen) just want to take a minute and thank the amazing coordinators we have at started.in Seattle. Jessica, Koji, Ananda, Matt, and of course Chet have done a killer job finding, profiling, and supporting Seattle’s startups over the past 12 months, and I’m excited to see what the future has in store (some great surprises on the way).
Also, thank you to the Seattle startup community. It is no surprise that you have been so supportive and accepting of our attempt to make Seattle a better place for startups. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
