Xconomy’s wide-angle look at Northwest innovation last week brought attendees the latest in real-time machine transcription, analysis of the policy implications for innovation in a Trump administration, in-depth talks with top investors and entrepreneurs, and much more.

The hearty folks who made it to 415 Westlake—located in the heart of South Lake Union, Seattle’s innovation crossroads—braved 40 degree temperatures and sunshine to take in the Xconomy Intersect event. OK, it did snow later Thursday night.

For those who missed it, take a look at some photos from the event (see above) and check in later for coverage of the key points we discussed.

Thanks to our fantastic group of speakers and sponsors: Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Fenwick & West, Arch Venture Partners, and Davis Wright Tremaine.
