Seattle celebrates two years

It has been 26 months since I sent a fairly random email to the founder of Startup Grind, Derek Anderson, letting him know that I wanted to help out in Seattle (@seattlegrind). Since then the Seattle chapter has had 23 events, over 1,600 attendees and recorded 20+ hours of video of the fireside chats, from the likes of Dan Levitan, Liz Pearce, Robert Scoble, Matt Erhlichman, Adam Tratt and Michelle Goldberg. It has been great for me to be able to talk with these people and get answers to questions that many startup founders are scratching their head over.
