Built In Seattle’s 50 startups to watch in 2019

Join our team Join our innovator network 

We’re proud to announce that Xinova was featured in Built In Seattle’s 50 Startups to Watch in 2019. It is an honor to be recognized alongside such an outstanding collection of startup excellence here in Seattle, one of the world’s great hubs of ideas and innovation. Our industries and goals may differ, but our businesses’ fundamental missions share a common thread: to advance technology and innovation for the betterment of society.

Built In Seattle states:

“Xinova makes finding exceptional minds a little easier thanks to its global network of brainpower. The Seattle-based company offers companies expertise and assistance regarding some of the world’s most stimulating problems, from cattle feed supplements to robotic vision, connecting professionals and academics with a network of over 12,000 inventors, research institutions and tech experts who can help solve their problems. The company also offers protection to individuals within the brain trust, giving creators help with patents and commercializing their inventions.”

Fun fact: Xinova’s Pioneer Square headquarters on the Occidental Mall, built shortly before the Klondike Gold Rush of 1896-1898, was a commercial hub for outfitting and provisioning the so-called “stampede” of gold prospectors. The Klondike Gold Rush entrepreneurial spirit echoes through Seattle’s innovative culture today.

Our esteemed startup community is driving the latest inflection point along Seattle’s distinctive continuum of innovation. A 1997 article in the Economist posited the previous century’s gold fever instilled an enduring entrepreneurial culture. Examining the rise of Microsoft, Starbucks, Boeing, Nordstrom (launched by a Swedish immigrant who struck gold) and others, the Economist said Seattle “is remarkable for its golden touch” as the city supported “standard-setters in their industries.” We agree. The Seattle startup scene is still golden.

We are proud to be amongst Seattle’s latest standard-bearers of industry pioneers and technological trailblazers. It’s been a pleasure to watch so many of our fellow innovators grow over the years. Some are friends. Some we have supported their business. And some we’ve admired from afar.

As a company founded by innovators, for innovators, Xinova is committed to contributing to Seattle’s vibrant startup culture as we build an engine for innovation that will serve the world’s innovators, investors, citizens and businesses.
