We hope you’re all as excited as we are about kicking off Startup Weekend Seattle! Here are some final details for you:
- Doors open at 6:00 PM. The location is Intiman Theatre at Seattle Center, 201 Mercer Street, Seattle, WA
- Dinner will arrive at 6:00 PM and we will kick off things officially at 6:30 PM
The folks at Zealyst studied your registration information in order to match you with other participants with whom you have collaborative potential. They’ve designed a customized “ice-breaker” game to help you connect with others, so it’s critical to arrive and be registered by 6:30 pm to play!
As soon as we finish with our “ice-breaker” game, we will have a short chat by JB Brown of Nordstrom Innovation Lab, then we’ll jump right into pitches! We will explain how the pitch-fire process works in the opening introduction speech but here are a few key points!
- Pitches are 60 seconds. This will be strictly enforced
- You may have just one chance to pitch, depending on how many people choose to pitch tonight so if you have multiple ideas, pitch the best one first.
- Make sure to take notes of the ideas pitched that you want to learn more about! This will really help during the team formation process!
If you are a student, bring your Student ID, or you will be charged full admission!
If you have any questions, send us an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can ☺
See you soon! Get pumped!
