Seattle Venture Capital

The Seattle venture capital scene is not as active as that of Silicon Valley, but there is still enough going on that it is worth following if you are interested in startups. If a company has just landed a round of funding, they might have money to hire you.

Some fun ways to become acquainted with a VC firm’s business are to follow them on Twitter or to read their blogs.
