Hack Seattle 2018


Hey, Seattle!


We're hosting a startup hackathon on saturday, February 3, 2018 to launch 10 new companies!  

A team of Experts will provide 10 startups with hands-on professional assistance in business development, software development, marketing, legal, and design to help each entrepreneur develop their ideas and launch their company.

Each startup will spend 45 minutes at each professional assistance station, then pitch their business idea at our mini pitch competition for a chance to win prizes and tech swag.
