About The Cultural Innovation Track during Seattle Startup week 2016

Seattle Startup Week is a five-day celebration of the flourishing startup community in hopes to build more momentum and opportunity around entrepreneurship in Seattle. 

Our goal for Startup week  is to bridge the gap between the Central District (CD) and the greater Seattle area tech community by highlighting and showcasing the untapped entrepreneurial genius the CD has to offer.
