If you’re an up-and-coming company in the Pacific Northwest, there’s no better place to be than Seattle’s Startup Hall. The incubator is the result of a public-private partnership between the University of Washington and three of the region’s top startup supporters: Founders’ Co-OpTechStars, and UP Global. The goal is that the Hall will become the hub for the region’s entrepreneurial community, a mission reflected the space’s emphasis on collaborative work environments, modern DIY design, and non-traditional networking events like “Waffle Wednesdays”.
