Over the past 4 years of running Techstars Seattle I've seen a lot of applicants come from big companies like Amazon and Microsoft. Everyone has their different reason for wanting to start a company, but for the most part the common thread was that this was on their bucket list, but they didn't know how or where to start, or what the resources were in Seattle. That's why I'm hosting Seattle Startups 101: Intro to Techstars and Seattle startup scene. If you are interested in learning more about Techstars and what the startup scene has to offer you should join us. We will have 4 ex-Amazonians who are Techstars Alumni speak on a panel to talk about their experiences leaving a big company to start their own.
6:30pm- Welcome by Andy Sack, Managing Director of Techstars Seattle
6:40pm- Panel of former Amazon employees who have graduated from Techstars
8:30pm- Event ends
