Welcoming Micah Baldwin


AUTHOR: Scott Jacobson | June 20, 2018

I am excited to announce that Micah Baldwin has joined us as Executive Director of the founder-focused innovation center we will be opening later this summer. In the spring, we shared that Madrona signed a ten-year lease for the 33rd floor of our building (directly below the Madrona offices) that will be dedicated to supporting tech founders and the startup ecosystem in Seattle. A key ingredient to the success of such an endeavor is a leader with equal parts vision and ability to execute, and we found our leader in Micah. Micah brings more than twenty years of startup experience as a serial founder, mentor and ecosystem supporter. While steeped in all things startup, Micah joins us from Amazon Web Services, where he developed and operated the AWS Connections program, which helps enterprises identify and collaborate with tech startups.

In the innovation center he will be doing that and much more for great Seattle founders and founding teams. Micah has an expansive vision for new and additive ways to create value for founders in our region and help to grow the next generation of world class technology companies in Seattle. We are looking forward to getting started and could not be more enthusiastic about Micah joining us in this endeavor.

We will have a lot more to share in the coming weeks. Welcome Micah!

And get in touch innovate@madrona.com if you are interested in exploring membership or space in the innovation space!
