Founders Learning Series

Have a great idea for a product or business? Not sure where to start? Consider the Founders Learning Series. Held each year in the spring and in the fall, this program brings together innovators, business advisors, and entrepreneurs for a broad overview of the startup process, from ideation and business planning to financing and marketing. Workshops are held weekly in the evenings, to allow for mid-career exploration, and include a light dinner.

Not sure if you can commit to the entire series of workshops? No worries. Sign up for only the sessions which appeal the most to your interests or needs.

Global Passport

If you’re a mid-stage mobile startup and you’re interested in expanding your global presence, consider the Global Passport program.

Each year, contingent on funding, Startup 425 partners with the Washington State Department of Commerce and the Port of Seattle to send a delegation to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Before the event, selected startups undergo specialized training–on such topics as IP protection and localization–designed to prepare them to sell their products and expand their presence in foreign markets.

Please stay tuned this summer for information on the 2018 Global Passport program.
