Video Update: Scott Berkun

August 23, 2013

Hey Seattle:

Thank you for all your support! We have reached our goal!

<pause for celebration>

BUT, we want to see if we can use this momentum to push us to our stretch goal of $35,000.

Video update from Scott with the details is below.

All of your support shows us you believe in this project as much as we do. So, please help get us to our stretch goal. Pull in a friend to pledge – or consider doubling down on yours. We are so close. Thanks for all of the support.

Much love for you and this city,

– Bryan, Scott, Dan, and Adam

Progress update & Behind the scenes

August 14, 2013

We’re half half way through our kickstarter campaign and wanted to update you on what we here at WMS headquarters have been up to. We’ll post more regular updates if you want them! Just leave a comment.

As a team we’ve been meeting weekly, with two different projects.


  • We launched the campaign Tues July 28th, emailing and calling all of our friends and family (Hi friends and family) to ask them to join and spread the word.
  • The fine folks at Geekwire wrote about us, and soon Time magazine followed suit.
  • We’ve been in full PR mode reaching out to everyone who know who loves our city and wants to help see it shine.
  • We’re currently at 65% with 12 days to go.
  • If we don’t make our goal, the film won’t happen, so most of our effort these last weeks have been focused on the kickstarter campaign.

Kickstarter Update: $6k (23%) and climbing on Day 1!

July 29, 2013

Thanks to all of you for tweeting and Facebooking word of our project. If you haven’t yet, now is a great time as our kickstarter campaign is still only a few hours old. And to our 30 supporters so far, we can truly say, you have helped make We Make Seattle.

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.

Thanks for your help and please spread the word.

Introducing We Make Seattle

June 1, 2013

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.

For now please follow us by email, Facebook and Twitter and spread the word. Thanks.
