Startup Stories with the Seattle 10

Jan. 24, 7 – 8:30 pm

WHAT: Join the Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) and GeekWire for a high-tech night at the museum with Startup Stories with the Seattle 10. For the fourth year, MOHAI has partnered with GeekWire to present the Seattle 10—a collection of history-making local startup companies. GeekWire co-founder John Cook will lead a panel of startup professionals in a discussion about Seattle’s startup culture and the role of technology in the city’s history.

WHEN: Jan. 24, 7 – 8:30 pm

WHERE: MOHAI 860 Terry Ave N., Seattle

DETAILS: Startup companies are the dynamic leading edge of the Seattle business community. They introduce new ideas and challenge assumptions. While some make it big and others close up shop, they all have dramatic stories and can teach everyone about innovation.

MOHAI and GeekWire annually select the Seattle 10—a collection of history-making local startup companies. These ground-breaking businesses then present their innovative ideas on massive napkins, which become part of MOHAI’s permanent collection.

This upcoming panel discussion will delve into Seattle’s startup culture and the role Seattle’s high tech history plays in the equation.

Panelists include:

  • Leen Kawas, President and CEO, M3 Biotechnology
  • Matt Oppenheimer, Co-Founder and CEO,
  • Remitly Kieran Snyder, Co-Founder and CEO, Textio
