In case you missed the memo, on June 22 nd well is currently under the Showbox SoDo along with hundreds of Seattle entrepreneurs, VCs, and tech fanatics. Come and join us! Register for the Seattle Meetup here.
As for the pitch-off, I have to say this is a particularly strong group of contenders, whittled down from a particularly large number of applicants. Good occupation, Seattle! Each of these ten corporations will have 60 seconds to pitch to the audience and judges.
