Presenting the 2018 Techstars Seattle Class

Techstars Seattle just kicked off its ninth year with ten new companies representing the best of the Pacific Northwest innovation ecosystem. Founders in this year’s class are bringing new solutions to hard problems in automotive, agriculture, e-commerce, enterprise SaaS, corporate innovation, recruiting, education and gaming.

We’re also excited to announce that this diverse mix of companies is led by our most diverse mix of founders ever, with three woman-led companies, three African-American founders (and three teams from Canada!;)). We strongly believe that diverse founding teams build better companies, and are thrilled to be partnering with founders from our broadest-ever range of cultural and professional backgrounds to drive exceptional business results.

Here’s a complete list of the Techstars Seattle Class of 2018, listed in alphabetical order, and including a brief description of the problem they’re focused on solving:

Educative — Self-directed, adaptive technical skills training platform for professional software developers.

Downstream — Helping consumer brands on leading e-commerce platforms maximize sell-through by combining catalog optimization, on-platform paid search, and integrated analytics

Ganaz — Labor marketplace and workforce management platform for seasonal agriculture, connecting good growers with good workers.

Halo — Car-connected mobile marketing automation and customer retention platform connecting automotive dealers, car owners and third-party service providers.

Launchboard — Innovation project management platform for the agile enterprise.

LegalPad — Bridging the gap between law and technology by focusing on repeatable business legal tasks and workflows that are ripe for automation.

Locumunity — Labor marketplace for temporary staffing of doctors and other licensed medical professionals.

Rainway — Remote game-streaming solution allowing gamers to stream their favorite PC games to any device.

Spocket — Wholesale marketplace connecting drop-ship-capable suppliers with online retail entrepreneurs.

WeSolv — Project-based talent discovery and diversity recruiting solution for enterprise customers.

Techstars Seattle is the Pacific Northwest’s oldest and most-selective startup accelerator. Our alumni, including category leaders like Remitly, Outreach, Leanplum, and Zipline, have collectively raised over half a billion dollars, and now employ over a thousand people in the Northwest and beyond. We’re incredibly grateful for the long-standing support of the Pacific Northwest innovation community and — with their help — hope to make our 2018 class the best one yet.
