RISE UP/GEAR UP

Inside University of Washington’s new Startup Hall

Condon Hall

Officially opening this month is Startup Hall, a new 20,000 square-foot entrepreneurial hub that’s quickly turned into a stair step of innovation support.

Important influencers in the region’s startup community have already moved in, with TechstarsFounder’s Co-op and UP Global (formerly Startup Weekend) setting up shop in Condon Hall’s old law school space. There is also a co-working space that entrepreneurs can work out of for $350 a month.

Startup Hall is the beginning of a multi-year vision for how the UW and a group of startup leaders plan to help transform a small pocket of the U-District into a thriving startup hub.
