A student community driven by startup culture

Startup UW is the University of Washington's largest student organization dedicated to entrepreneurship across all industries and disciplines.

A mission to inspire others and lead change

We believe innovation in the Pacific Northwest starts here. Our goal is to equip students with the resources, connections, and skills they need to kickstart their next impactful enterprise.

We believe we can help make Seattle and the UW an even better place for startups to thrive.
