On October 25th, 2018, a diverse group of leading changemakers will converge on Seattle for a one-day workshop unlike any other.

Curvejump Seattle will ignite your imagination and offer you a unique opportunity to explore game-changing ideas with leaders transforming business and culture in the Pacific Northwest.

At this invite-only event, you'll have real time to connect with a select group of entrepreneurs, scientists, artists and inventors pushing the edges of creativity and redefining what’s possible in everything from biotech to energy to food to music.

In partnership with design power-house Hornall Anderson, we’re taking the best ideas from our flagship Curvejump: Jackson Hole event, and focusing them on Seattle’s vibrant business community for one remarkable day of exploration and discovery.

If you’re ready to experience first-hand how leading innovators harness human-centered ideas, creativity and purpose to transform themselves, attract top people to their ideas and jump the growth curve, Curvejump: Seattle is for you.


Curvejump: Seattle happens Thursday, October 25th, at the brand new Olson Kundig-designed headquarters of Hornall Anderson in downtown Seattle.

Our day will begin at 9 am and includes lunch and an offsite field trip. We'll cap things with an intimate dinner created by James Beard award winner Chef Renee Erickson at 7 pm.

Price: $695.
Fully refundable for anyone who attends and feels that it wasn’t worth their time.

Space is limited and once it's sold out, that's it.

Please note: Curvejump: Seattle is an invite-only event. If you haven't received an invitation and are interested in attending, please contact us for more information.
