Startups keep coming, despite market conditions

Like a lot of people nowadays, I’ll be glad if I can pay my mortgage next year, much less the payroll at a startup company.

So I’m amazed that people keep starting new businesses, now that the economy is in full meltdown.

While banks were failing, Wall Street was crashing and Boeing striking last month, 9,974 people started the process of licensing a new company in Washington, according to state records. That’s down from 11,622 in October 2007, but it still makes you wonder.

Who are these people and what are they thinking?

A few answers are in today’s column, looking at the stories of a few new startups in Seattle.
