ABOUT DEN Seattle
DEN Seattle is the local Western Washington chapter of
Entrepreneurial Network (DEN). We encourage and cultivate entrepreneurship
through and within the greater Seattle community of alumni, students and family
of Dartmouth, Thayer, Tuck, DMS, and alumni of other Dartmouth
DEN Seattle hopes to launch a series of networking events and
workshops to foster idea sharing, mentorship, and to bring together aspiring and
seasoned entrepreneurs, funders and service providers.
The mission of the
Dartmouth Entrepreneurial Network of Seattle (DEN Seattle) is to foster
relationships among its members educate them about founding, operating, and
financing entrepreneurial endeavors. Our community includes the alumni,
students, and faculty of Dartmouth College, the Tuck School of Business, the
Thayer School of Engineering and the Dartmouth Medical School who live or work in the Seattle area.
We strive to use our
common ties to Hanover to create an atmosphere of trust and
familiarity for all of our members.
The Club intends to
create a valuable educational resource that will further the interests, welfare,
and educational purposes of Dartmouth College, for so long as the Club is in
existence and Dartmouth College remains organized exclusively for charitable,
educational or scientific purposes within the meaning of Sections 501(c)(3) and
170(b)(1)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
