Over the weekend Kickstarter chose We Make Seattle as a staff pick, helping boost us a few more percent of the way towards our goal.
Thanks Nick for helping support us and the city of Seattle – you’re awesome.
Who will be next? I hope it’s you. Maybe the person next to you? Or perhaps you’ll share our project with your team, or your boss? We’d be grateful.

As a reference for the We Make Seattle project, here’s a list we’re compiling of videos other cities have made about their tech and creative cultures. Some of these projects are government sponsored, others corporate and a few are grass roots and community led.

If you work for a large Seattle corporation or organization, please consider reaching out inside for Silver, Gold or Platinum sponsorships. Having a major sponsor as a backer will go a huge way to make sure this project happens.

It’s easy to overlook how well Seattle does in national and international rankings for the best cities. Here’s a list we’re compiling:

We’re creating a short film to show the world how great Seattle is for creatives and entrepreneurs who have big ideas and the passion to invest in them.
Outside of the Pacific Northwest, little is known about what makes Seattle a great city for creatives. Despite recently being rated the #1 tech city in America by The Atlantic, most of America knows little about why they should bring their ideas and businesses here. Our goal is to lead a community driven PR campaign, centered on a short film, to raise our profile to where it belongs among America’s great cities for people with big ideas.
The film will be something local creatives and entrepreneurs can use to recruit talent, co-founders and resources. Larger companies can use it to help convince recruiting candidates to move to the Northwest. And for those who simply love living in the Emerald City, it will be a fun and entertaining way to convince smart friends and ambitious creatives from around the world to bring their passions here.
Our kickstarter campaign raised $30k and is set to launch spring of 2016.
