Scenes From The Seattle TechCrunch Meetup

The startup scene in Seattle is for real. More than 1,000 people came to the Showbox Theater to mingle, have a drink and hear pitches from 18 local startups. During the meetup, we got a feel for the general mood of the Seattle startup scene. Everyone we spoke with embraced the grueling startup life and were eager to prove they have something compelling and unique.

Check out the videos to see scenes from the event and interviews with attendees and participants in the one-minute pitch-off, which include Daily Dollar, a service for saving digital copies of customer receipts, and CPUsage, which is offering a platform-as-a-service for developing high-performance computing applications.

And don’t miss out on the next TechCrunch meetup, which will take place August 22 in San Diego.
