Julie Sandler on Why Seattle is the Cloud Capital of the World–and a Great Place for Startups

AUTHOR: Julie Sandler | April 22, 2016 – Seattle is the world’s cloud capital — and not just because of its overcast winter weather. During a panel at this month’s iCONIC event in Seattle, Julie Sandler, principal at Madrona Venture Group, said that the area was the world’s cloud capital, with two of the industry’s biggest players, Amazon and Microsoft, in residence.

I’m always eager to learn more about the cloud — and also about the Seattle area, which has been my home for the past year and a half. So I followed up with Sandler to ask what (besides the presence of the two big cloud players) makes Seattle the cloud capital, and what that means to entrepreneurs.
