5:30-6:30 VIP Reception with Judges and Idea Presenters
How can we use Seattle's tech boom as an asset to create an equitable and integrated city? Join local news outlet Crosscut.com, TechCrunch Founder & CrunchFund general partner Michael Arrington, Seattle Metropolitan Chamber president & CEO Maud Daudon, GeekWire cofounder John Cook, Seattle Office of Policy and Innovation Director Robert Feldstein and others to answer that question as part of Crosscut's first Community Idea Lab.
