April is always a great month with our job fair happening on the 19th and our biggest event of the year, UW CSE New Tech Showcase, happening on April 10th!
If you haven’t attended the UW event before, you really need to go. It’s a great opportunity to learn about some very cool tech coming out of businesses started by UW alumni and professors. If you’re an investor – this is a good place to talent scout.
Every year we fill the atrium with UW students, alumni, staff, New Tech Northwest regular members and curious Seattle newcomers. It makes for an especially dynamic and fun event. Just look at the pictures! Of course, the food and beverage come free with your ticket – so if you leave work or your last class hungry, we’ve got you.
Since we started these events with our friends at UW CSE, we’ve watched 25 different startups present their unique ideas – and we’ve see some of them hit it big, like decide.com, which was acquired by ebay in 2013. Prior to its sale, decide raised $17 million from Maveron, Madrona and Vulcan.
This year we will hear from 4 new businesses conceived by UW alumni that include:
- Jeeva Wireless, presented by Vamsi Talla – Jeeva is revolutionizing the way devices communicate.
- Educative, presented by Fahim ul Haq – Educative provides interactive courses for software engineers.
- AnswerIQ, presented by Dennis Meng – AnswerIQ is the answer to customer support efficiency. They use AI to boost customer support agent productivity and reduce handling time.
AND, COME LEARN ABOUT!
- UW EcoCAR, presented by Kellen Potocsnak – The UW EcoCAR3 team is competing in the 4-year EcoCAR3 competition to convert a Chevrolet Camaro into an advanced hybrid electric vehicle.
VROOOM, VROOM, VROOOOOOM!!!
