Seattle Entrepreneurship Scene Featured on ID8 Nation
SEATTLE – With a coffee-fueled entrepreneurial spirit that created giants such as Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks and Costco, ID8 Nation discusses the city’s love of disruption and asks why there aren’t more angel investors in this town full of billionaires. Between the website and tablet-based magazine, ID8 Nation contains 14 feature articles, four national trend columns and five short documentary videos, taking a deep dive into the fabric of Seattle’s entrepreneurial scene and exploring its history and promising future.
One video, featuring social entrepreneurs making a difference in local businesses, includes the alumni and learning environment of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute.
“ID8 Nation illustrates the rapidly growing entrepreneurial sector in this region,” said Gifford Pinchot, President of the Bainbridge Graduate Institute. “It demonstrates how social enterprise can provide a good financial return. It is an honor to have so many of our graduates showcased in this feature on our local entrepreneurial scene.”
