The Silicon Sound: Seattle’s space in the evolving tech sector
At December’s City Maker Breakfast, we delved into the impact of the tech industry on downtown and the city. Often called the Silicon Valley of the north, Seattle is a city fueled by technology companies. In fact, nearly two out of every five office jobs in Seattle is tech-based. This ecosystem extends beyond the big names, as Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia and other tech giants spawn other Seattle-based startups. Are we fostering an environment to nurture this sector? What’s emerging for tech in Seattle? What are the differences and similarities between Seattle and the Silicon Valley? Attendees learned about these issues and more in a wide-ranging discussion with our expert panelists.
