Seattle Makers Speed Coaching
This past week Mercy Corps Northwest hosted a Speed Coaching Event for Seattle makers & producers at Hale’s Ales Brewery & Pub in Ballard. The event successfully connected 24 local entrepreneurs with 7 business mentors, covering topics such as Marketing, Financing, Retail & Wholesale Sales, Finding Production Spaces, and more. Attendees were able to meet one-on-one with industry experts and get invaluable practical advice on their specific business.
The event was the first of three Speed Coaching Events scheduled for this year. The next event will be held on June 9 at the Impact Hub in Seattle with a special focus on Food & Beverage businesses.
The series of events are co-hosted by Seattle Made and sponsored by Umpqua Bank and the City of Seattle Economic Development Office.
