On March 12, we held seminars at Bellevue library. Despite the difficult parking condition there, we had a roomful people go to the seminar and some of them had to stand. Attorney Yixiong Zou gave a practical talk on intellectual property law. He prepared lots of useful information, yet time was limited. He did not get the chance to touch on open source licensing. We are going to invite him back for another seminar that focuses on software intellectual property protection soon. Maria Zhang shared her experience on why and how
she started her company. Her talk was frank and thought-provoking. Many people are interested in learning more about her startup UrbanQ. We are going to invite her back to talk more about it.
Meanwhile, we got more and more media exposure. Seattle Chinese Times introduced our club and reported about our club activities:
What is more exciting is that one of our co-founders Song’s startup, schooldistrictfinder.com, was voted as one of the finalists in Seattle 2.0 Amazing Startups competition. China Press USA reported about this achievement:
Also sadly and happily we saw one of our another co-founders Ben, the CEO of eTalkUp, got startup fund from Hong Kong and left
Seattle for his new adventure. We wish him the best!
Thank all the volunteers who made it a fruitful month!
