FFA and The City of Seattle Office of Economic Development are so excited to partner to bring FFA Founder Day to founders from BBIPOC (Black, Brown, Indigenous People Of Color) communities looking to scale their business. At this event, we'll combine workshops and panels on how to scale your business with 1:1 meetings with investors, business vertical experts, and other influentials.

You’ll also have an opportunity to be selected for the City's Startup Success Cohort (sponsored by Create33), a 6 month program that includes monthly summits, one on one office hours, investor pitch coaching, mentorship and tailored content. The program also includes desk space at Create33 in downtown Seattle.
