Go Vertical
Startup Creation Workshop

Hosted by MVL, TiE Seattle, & AWIT

2021 Final Results

We’re very pleased to announce the winners from the event!

We had a great workshop with our participants, mentors, volunteers and judges.  It was a really interesting mix of technology, product and business professionals coming together to be creative and work on innovative new startup ideas. We really appreciate everyone’s help and participation!  Can’t wait for the next ‘Go Vertical’ event.

"An immersive experience of what it takes to build an idea from passion to pitch"

"GoVertical is the most well structured, well run startup creation event that I have seen in Seattle or U.S."

"Unlike other hackathons, GoVertical pushed us to build a business case that could stand up alongside the product. That practice was invaluable and it pushed our team over the top."

"Great event for networking purposes and really hear out ideas from different fields of people that you normally won't see."
