Gina Phillips

I am all about communities. Most pursuits involve supporting the entrepreneurial community in Seattle.

I'm the Seattle Lead for WeWork, offering collaborative workspace for entrepreneurs and small businesses.

I am also the founder of Seattle Startup Week: a week of events showcasing Seattle's startup community. In 2014, I teamed up with UP Global to take the week to the next level.

Formerly, I ran Seattle Greendrinks, a non-profit convening the environmental community, Bloom, a speaker series showcasing innovation in sustainability, the Seattle Social Enterprise Meetup, a monthly meetup building a network of entrepreneurs for social good, and Get a Real Job Fair, a job fair connecting hiring startups to tech talent.

I was also a part of a startup building an amazing mobile game for self-actualization through the power of your friends, called MakeMe.

I am a Global Shaper with the World Economic Forum, a member of Young Entrepreneur Social, and I also sit on the board of StartupSeattle's Women in Technology. I spend a lot of time playing competitive ultimate frisbee, most recently going to Worlds in Italy, Crossfitting, and talking about feelings. Puns are the way to my heart.
