on September 16, 2013 | in fledglings

The rest of the cohort will arrive in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, there is plenty of inspiration to go around with these four teams. If you are in Seattle this Autumn, please stop by. We are at Impact Hub Seattle every weekday, and our schedule of events is visible here.

And… save the eventing of November 21st to meet the fledglings and hear their visions at our Demo Day.

    Luni made one of the most effective presentations at SoCAP in San Francisco, on raising capital without a weighty exit requirement. Very effective engagement of audience, which included both investors and entrepreneurs. Taught me a lot in a short time.
