Business Week’s annual list of “Best Young Tech Entrepreneurs” out today includes three standout Seattle entrepreneurs.
Readers, investors and editorial staff selected the “most promising tech startups and the young people, age 30 and under, who set them in motion,” the magazine said.
Locals among the 22 finalists include:
UW grad and Christophe Bisciglia, 28, who went on to Google and is now at Burlingame, Calif., enterprise software firm Cloudera, which specializes in Hadoop. Bisciglia began teaching Hadoop and other key technologies used by Google in 2007 at UW, where he remains a visiting scientist.
