Seattle Startup Week is back, and this year’s organizers are expecting it to be bigger than ever. Registration opened today on the Seattle Startup Week website, and you can sign up and attend as many events as you’d like!

Seattle Startup Week 1

Seattle Startup Week is a free, five-day celebration of the Seattle startup community happening October 26-30, 2015, that builds momentum and opportunity around entrepreneurship. It’s led by local entrepreneurs and hosted in amazing spaces all over town.

One of those spaces is Basecamp, Powered by Chase. For the second year in a row Basecamp will take place at Impact HUB Seattle, 220 2nd Ave S, Seattle, WA. Basecamp is a great place to network, recharge and take in great programming. Plus, they have daily Happy Hours from 4-6pm that are always a lot of fun!

Here are some programming highlights for the week:

    Monday, Oct. 26 // Intellectual Property Essentials for the Hyper-growth Startup

–    Tuesday, Oct. 27 // Operation Failure: Learning that failure is a constant

–    Wednesday, Oct. 28 // Sustainable Design for Hardware Startups

–    Thursday, Oct. 29 // Grit and Resilience: What You Need to Scale Up

–    Friday, Oct. 30 // Rethinking 21st Century Higher Education

Check back often as new programs will be added daily leading up to the event.

While Seattle Startup Week is mostly about learning, there’s also a lot of celebrating that goes on. The Opening and Closing Parties are not to be missed. It’s a great way to connect with others to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship.

And of course, none of this would be possible without the generous support of the Seattle Startup Week sponsors. We’d like to thank Chase for their continued support of Startup Week and for returning again this year as the title sponsor. Their support of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Seattle is truly remarkable and we’re very thankful to have them as a partner.

Sign up today to get your all-access pass and RSVP for as many programs as you’d like!
