SAC 17 Selects Six Finalists

After several rounds of review, pitches, and evaluation, the 45 investors in SAC 17 have selected the six finalists for Seattle Angel Conference.

Seattle Angel Conference XVII  has selected Six Startup Finalists.  We were pleased to receive over sixty company submissions in this cohort. Forty five investors collaborated together and with cohort founders - all with the goal of identifying the top six most investable companies.  Like so much in our lives in this moment, COVID-19 has a major impact on our investment process and the relationships we build along the way. Thankfully we have a passionate and enthusiastic cohort of founders and investors who’ve ensured that even as we move to virtual events, meetings and chat rooms, we remain laser-focused on improving the startup ecosystem here in the Pacific Northwest.


We want to congratulate FieldNotes AI, Nav.it, Neptune Fish Jerky, PDM Automotive, Qase and Tribute on their achievement and we will be announcing the winner on May 13th as part of our Final Demo Day Event..  Since the Final event will be virtual, we will be welcoming attendees from outside the Pacific Northwest which gives us a great opportunity to showcase some of our local startups to the rest of the world.




The Final presentations for Seattle Angel Conference on May 13th  will be a virtual event on Zoom.  Sign up for a ticket if you are wanting to see the Finalist Pitches and want to mingle with the investors and companies that participated in this round of Seattle Angel Conference. 


Seattle Angel Conference is a six month program that runs twice a year, connecting early stage startups with new Angel Investors that culminates in a $200,000 investment in one of the companies. Through this process, we have engaged more than 1400 companies and created more than 400 new Angel Investors in the Seattle Area.
